As if there are not enough lawyer jokes, Hal Raines of the NY Times states those who have leaked national security details regarding our efforts to stop terrorist attacks on US citizens:
One audience member asked about the role of media leaks. Raines opted not to go in-depth since he no longer is a working journalist, but offered a bit of a leak of his own:
“Almost all leakers are lawyers. That’s the bottom line.”
It is a well known fact that most elected leaders in Congress are Lawyers, as are their staff. So Raine’s has at least increased the probabilities that the leaks of our national security did indeed come from the halls of Congress and a severely desparate minority party willing to do anything to win an election.
