It has occurred to me, among all the threads asking "who leaked the emails" about Foley, that it was actually the pages themselves, talking to a reporter.

And the question of motive immediately arrives: why would they wait until just before an election?

Think about being in their position for a minute:

Raising such an allegation against a powerful group (RW lawmakers with a RW administration) is a terrifying proposition, especially given all the laws to take away civil liberties. They could easily disgrace you, your family and possibly bring legal, political, financial and other retributions upon you. People have been known to 'disappear'.

Now, you see the RW grab for ultimate power: NSA Spying, Torture, and another illegal War looming, this time, against a more powerful enemy, Iran.

You know you and your fellow pages have been abused by the power hungry republicans in power who have become so drunk with their power, that it not only has corrupted their thinking, but also their souls and their behavior. They are well on their way to taking America down.

You know that you do not want them to continue in power. You talk it over with other pages who have been abused by this sick group's power, and you know there is only one right thing to do: break the story now, before the republicans have a chance to steal another election.

These boys who have come to the table to discuss their abuse by the republicans in power should be rewarded as brave patriots, not only standing up for themselves, but also for their country. Whoever they are, while i feel terribly sick for what has been done to them, I also feel proud that they have the bravery and honor to stand up for America.
