Steve blogged about this yesterday, but this is such an egregious violation of national security that it does not deserve to get shoved down the memory hole by the traditional media who simply catalogue one outrage after the next without connecting the dots or making sure that their viewers realize what's happening. Thankfully, Keith Olbermann does neither, carefully contextualizing the point that we liberal blogs have been saying for years: The Bush administration only cares to ratchet up the fear to serve their purposes, not protect the citizens of this country.

Keith then speaks with terrorism expert Evan Kohlmann on the long-term damage inflicted by the Bush Administration's need to show that they are doing something in the "War on Terror", if only to lie to their base again.

And to the people (I use that term loosely) at FOX News? There is no point in denying it. You collectively ARE Pravda. You are nothing more than the official state propaganda office masquerading as a "news" service.

Can you help us out?
