What a scumbag...

Richard L. Armitage, the former deputy secretary of state has admitted that he was the one who leaked confidential information to a newspaper reporter in 2003. Armitage revealed the identity of a CIA operative to reporter Robert Novak during an informal meeting between the two men. As if that wasn’t enough, Armitage is alleged to have revealed the same information to the editor of the Washington Post two weeks prior. So what drives a person to treason, who, by all accounts is doing quite well for themselves? Why would a high level government official endanger the life of not only the CIA operative he so callously revealed, but her husband as well? The biggest question is why, in this day and age, would someone do something so harmful to this country? There is no easy answer. One should also question why newspapers would print such stories. It is unfortunate that we have come to expect this from papers such as the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and a number of other publications that have come so far from their glory days of years past. The real problem is the rampant liberalization of the media. Thankfully the majority of the media still has integrity, however the small portion that does not is creating huge problems for this country. As radical leftist ideas are slowly falling out of favor with average Americans, these "super-libs" need to continually increase their offensiveness and do ever more crass things to be noticed. The moral of the story is don’t expect much from the left and certainly don’t expect any journalistic integrity from the "usual suspects".
