Did You Know...

So far, the commentariat and blogosphere (both left and right sides) have been curiously quiet about the news that Pentagon official Larry Franklin was arrested for improperly passing classified information to AIPAC.

Last summer, you may recall, there was quite a bit of analysis–from colleagues I respect and admire–downplaying the case.

Despite the arrest and the gravity of the charges, the NY Sun is continuing to pooh-pooh Franklin’s alleged actions.

“To us this sounds more like Sandy Berger or John Deutch than it does, say, Jonathan Pollard,” the Sun says. Um, not really. Both Berger and Deutch mishandled classified information–a serious crime–but neither was accused of deliberately passing on that information to others, as Franklin allegedly did.

There is, as they saw, a war on. Franklin’s alleged actions are scandalous. The apologists and apathetic are troubling.
