All Right, Not All Right

Juan Cole invents a new game at Informed Comment for keeping track of which leaks are OK and which are not: All Right, Not All Right.

Glenn Greenwald has more on the selective punishment of the "bad leaks" in three excellent posts: Treason by association, Eliminating all checks against lawbreaking, and Selectively punishing politically damaging leaks.

Update: Somehow, even John Kerry managed to clearly explain why this is ridiculous:
Kerry said that with McCarthy, "you have somebody being fired from the CIA for allegedly telling the truth, and you have no one fired from the White House for revealing a CIA agent in order to support a lie. That underscores what's really wrong in Washington, D.C."
