Bush Slams New York Times

Although the President didn't mention the NYT by name, he did say this in regard to the outing of a secret government program to track terrorist through financial transactions:

The disclosure of this program is disgraceful...For people to leak that program and for a newspaper to publish it does great harm to the United States of America...The fact that a newspaper disclosed it makes it harder to win this war on terror.

I guess it's safe to say Bush isn't very happy. Vice President Cheney, in a speech at a political fundraiser in Grand Island, Nebraska, added this,
"Some in the press, in particular The New York Times, have made the job of defending against further terrorist attacks more difficult by insisting on publishing detailed information about vital national security programs."

The Slimes Times has done a grave disservice to the American people. It's good to here our political leaders speak out against that.
