The once great New York Times has hit a new low. In a June 2 story they revealed the name of the covert CIA agent heading up their Iran operation. This obviously makes him a target for assassination. They put an even bigger target on his back by mentioning his past anti-terrorism efforts. This goes way beyond bad judgment and is bordering on treason.
The Times offered two explanations for their reckless act. They said his name had already appeared in print. They should know because they are the ones that did it. The other rationalization is “he is leading an important new administration initiative against Iran”.
I can think of four explanations for their irresponsible reporting; they hate Trump so much that they want to do harm to the country, they are pro-terrorist, they want the man and his family to be killed or they have taken total leave of their senses. If he is killed I believe the reporters and their editors should be tried as accessories to murder.
Everyone, irregardless of their political beliefs, should condemn the story. Fight terrorism and protecting the lives of those who lead the effort should not be a partisan issue.
