Let\’s Fight the Obama Administration\’s Crusade to Jail Another Journalist | | AlterNet

Obama administration officials are no longer content just with targeting whistleblowers like Sterling, former National Security Agency official Thomas Drake, (who goes on trial soon on charges of providing classified information to The Baltimore Sun) and of course Bradley Manning, the Army intelligence analyst accused – and already pronounced guilty by the president — of passing classified documents to Wikileaks.org. Now they are coming for the journalists as well – just as Bush Administration officials did before them. And if Risen\’s subpoena is not quashed and he still refuses to testify, he risks being held in contempt and imprisoned, just as Times reporter Judy Miller was for 85 days for her refusal to testify in connection with the Valerie Plame Wilson.
