he probably believes the case applies to journalists keeping their
sources confidential

the difference here is that she is covering up a potential criminal event

2. he supports her "pluck" on this issue.. he is clear she shilled ...
for the war.. you must listen for the satire.. Franken has a style that can be effective, shame and ridicule are powerful weapons he uses..look at how he delt with the dude that wrote the Hillary "truth" book!

4. His support is fine for now...
I mean I'm glad she's in jail because it's punishment for her WMD lies and the consequences. I'm not rational on that subject either.

However, just as she aided the * folks with WMD and getting Iraq going, she may have been "servicing" them in her capacity here. That's indicated by (a) the length of her sentence and (b) tossing her in a real "Women's Prison."

If it turns out that she's engaged in criminal activity with * and Rove and the rest, I'm sure Al will go after her.

I think that this woman's lies about WMD and her use of a known crook and now known traitor, Chalabi, puts gives her the status of war criminal. Maybe we can just send her to the Hague.

Here's how it all started...Scoop Independent News Monday, 18 July 2005
