Comments: Barbara Boxer: Lincoln's Assassination in Ford's Theater Was Really About Whether or Not Booth Got His Gun Legally

If she had said the same thing about Sarah Palin's e-mails I might believe her.

Apart from that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?

I hope she shoots the messenger with a legally purchased weapon!

I think some one should take a look at the Boxer family stock portfolio. My guess is that she has a lot invested in green equities.

So she wanted the relavant US criminal code read into the record.

The "theft" was in the UK from a UK institution. The date was first posted on a Russian server.

Does she have any evidence that the "crime" took place in the US or that that the "criminal" was a US citizen? I doubt it.

Ergo, she is claiming extraterritoriality for the US government. The laws she writes will be obeyed throughout the world. Her writ will carry everywhere.

Humble, isn't she?

Wonder if she's up for a treason prosecution for those who leaked the classified info to the NYT?

Shades of the leaked memo from the Democrattic side of the supposedly non-partisan Senate Select Committee for Intelligence. The memo laid out the Democrats intention to use intelligence for political purposes.

The furore from the Dems and media was so great about the confidentiality of the committee being breached. The politicing of intelligence information - not so much.

The head of the UN's climate science body says claims that UK scientists manipulated data on global warming should be investigated.

Dr Rajendra Pachauri, head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said the matter could not be swept "under the carpet".

I guess you can’t subvert the investigation from the outside. Posted by Neo at December 4, 2009 12:26 PM

Thank goodness for her there is all that case law from the hundreds who were prosecuted for providing liberal rags with classified information over the last several decades.
