    Due to the content this will probably get tossed in political section rather quick...

    Sort of interesting that the reporters that investigated the criminal activity of the Valerie Plame case are still getting shafted, that their appeals have so far come to nothing.

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    Perhaps perhaps not. I think everyone at least claims to want the leakers locked up and would make rather have them nailed to the wall instead of the reporters.

    From what I've read everyone who could have leaked it signed(was coerced into signing) statements saying "If I was the person then the reporter can talk."

    This is slightly different than the standard shield law case because the only real crime or nefarious act was in the revealing. In theory the reporter is an accessory to an espionage violation. (not in publishing the information but in receiving it)
