Mr. Keller,

What ceases to amaze me about your paper is the lengths you are willing to go to make headlines and sell papers. Who cares if those headlines help the enemies of America, you guys are making money and that is what it is all about in the end right?

Your recent decision to publish information about a classified program intended to track the banking transactions of possible terrorists is not only detrimental to America but also to its fighting men and women overseas. I know because I am a sergeant in the army on my second tour to Iraq. As I am sure you don’t know because you aren’t in Iraq, and I am sure never will be, terrorism happens here everyday because there are rich men out there willing to support the everyday terrorist who plants bombs and shoots soldiers just to make a living. Without money terrorism in Iraq would die because there would no longer be supplies for IEDs, no mortars or RPGs, and no motivation for people to abandon regular work in hopes of striking it rich after killing a soldier.

Throughout your article you mention that, "the banking program is a closely held secret," but the cat is out of the bag now isn’t it. Terrorists the world over can now change their practices because of your article. For some reason I think that last sentence will bring you guys pleasure. You have done something great in your own eyes-you think you have hurt the current administration while at the same time encouraging "freedom fighters" resisting the imperialism of the United States. However, I foresee a backlash coming your way. I wish I had a subscription to your paper so I could cancel it as soon as possible. But alas, that would prove a little tough right now since I am in Iraq dealing with terrorists financed by the very men you are helping.

Thank you for continually contributing to the deaths of my fellow soldiers. You guys definitely provide a valuable service with your paper. Why without you how would terrorists stay one step ahead of us? I would love to hear a response as to why you deemed revealing this program a necessity, but that will probably come as soon as the government decides to finally put you guys behind bars where you belong.

  1. Tim Boggs was also interviewed on Fox by Neil Cavuto. The interview was also available on foxnews.com/Cavuto, not sure if it still is.

  2. The entire industry of journalism is suffering a form in intellectual inbreeding brought on by its near total insulation from outside influence.
    Those currently employed in that industry should be well aware that in the minds of many in America, they are incurring a “blood debt” and the day that payment is demanded as due is brought closer with each and every slid into overt enemy propaganda or blatant act of treason.
    When that day comes, it wont matter a bit whether or not the individual journalist was less or more guilty. Enraged mobs acting out of wrath never stop to worry over such details.

  3. Under the guise of “freedom of speech,” the New York Times and other media outlets consistiently commit treason. We are at war, this is not some Hollywood scumbag whose reputation has been impugned by their words, this is life and death of those who serve our country and yes, of our country as well.
    Don’t spend your money on them. Don’t buy from their advertisers.

  4. I’d love to have a list of the 10 or 25 biggest advertisers that fund the NYT. Do you think we could get their attention?

    The charges
    RESOLVED
    Resolved, That the Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin, participated in acts of sedition. In that the Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin, holding a leadership role in the United States Senate, did support the enemies of our Nation in a time of War, and did Read Confidential documents in open Senate session on numerous occasions, and that this conduct of the Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin, is contrary to senatorial traditions and is hereby condemned.
    Sec 2. The Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin, in addressing the Senate in his Official capacity as the Minority Whip of the Senate, on June 15, 2005, compared the United States Military at Guantanamo Bay to those of Nazis, Soviet Gulags, or a “mad regime” like Pol Pot’s acted contrary to senatorial ethics and tended to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute, to impair its dignity; and such conduct is hereby condemned.
    Sec 3. The Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin, has revealed sensitive details about Confidential National Security Operations to members of the press, thereby passing this confidential information to the Nations enemies in a time of war. The Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin, did divulge top secret details about a new generation of spy satellites to the Washington Post resulting in a story published December 11, 2004. This story compromised United States Military strategy and cost United States Tax Payers hundreds of millions of dollars, acted contrary to senatorial ethics and tended to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute, to impair its dignity; and such conduct is hereby condemned
    “I call on those who question the motives of the president and his national security advisors to join with the rest of America in presenting a united front to our enemies abroad.”
    –Senator Dick Durbin, in 1998, defending then-President Bill Clinton, when he attacked Iraq.
    Ignorance of history destroys our judgment. Consider Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill), who just compared the Guantanamo Bay detention center to Stalin’s gulag and to the death camps of Hitler and Pol Pot — an astonishing, obscene piece of ignorance. Between 15 million and 30 million people died from 1918 through 1956 in the prisons and labor camps of the Soviet gulag. Historian Robert Conquest gives some facts. A prisoner at the Kholodnaya Gora prison had to stuff his ears with bread before sleeping on account of the shrieks of women being interrogated. At the Kolyma in Siberia, inmates labored through 12-hour days in cheap canvas shoes, on almost no food, in temperatures that could go to minus-58. At one camp, 1,300 of 3,000 inmates died in one year…
    …If you are proud of this country and don’t want its identity to vanish, you must teach U.S. history to your children. They won’t learn it in school. This nation’s memory will go blank unless you act.
    Los Angeles Times op-ed page. Yale professor David Gelernter
    Senator Durbins comment on the discovery of the 2 mutilated soldiers’ bodies: He said it is a “grim reminder of the price we’re paying for a failed policy in Iraq”? Make your voices heard by signing the Censure Senator Durbin online petition calling on the Senate to Censure Senator Durbin for Sedition!!!!
    There can be little doubt that Sen. Richard Durbin as the second ranking member of the Senate minority has been given one of the highest posts within the power of his party to confer. By listening to him and watching the visual on the Blog http://www.censuredurbin.org you can hardly equate his highly inflammatory charge…a charge which has caused him to apologize to the Senate not once but twice…a charge that earned him criticism from Mayor Richard M. Daley among others…a charge that so cruelly misrepresented the work of our soldier-guards as to give active aid and comfort to our enemies.

    Please forward to your lists it is time we restrain Senator Durbin and support our troops

  6. I believe this thing about tracking financial information came out just after 9-11. Remember all the talk about Osama Bin Laden and all his money? I think with common sense you could figuire out that the CIA would be looking into where the terrorist’s money was coming from, right from the beginning, maybe the FBI, too. I know there have been some articles about certain charities collecting money in this country under false pretenses and sending the money to terrorists. You people getting all upset by this should have been able to figuire it out yourselves, years ago.

  7. Gee, if you’re so outraged by the leaks of classified information, why aren’t you demanding that your Fuhrer be prosecuted for releasing the name of a CIA agent a few years ago?
    Or if that’s too far in the past, then how about your Fuhrer being told to shut his lying mouth about the recent British terror arrests?

    Or could it be that you couldn’t care less about security, and actually hate your country and every single thing it stands for? Yeah, that must be it. After all, there’s not a peep from you about your Fuhrer having lied his way into a war that has cost hundreds of thousands of lives and half a trillion bucks.
    Not that you could care. Even the lives of fellow Americans don’t matter to you: It’s all partisan politics for you.
