    You aren't a patriot (unlike, apparently, 81% of Republicans). What more is there to say?

    ETA: Here's what an actual patriot sounds like

    What are the AP and NBC's sources, the same as the NYT's anonymous source, did they get a name to their source or are they getting it from the NYT's themselves. you did not link to the AP or NBC articles so that we could check if
    1. they even provide sources
    2. and if those sources can be checked.
    Please rectify your mistake and link to the 2 articles.

    I think one of the most cowardly things any American can do is accuse somebody else of not being a patriot just because they don't think like you do.

    just as I thought anonymous sources probably the same ones that gave this to the NYT's sorry Divine ob the AP did not confirm it they just repeated it or got it from the same anonymous sources. this is why I do not just do a blanket acceptance of any news source including those I find more reliable then a certain gossip rag, because they make sure they have checked the facts thoroughly rather then just accept anonymous sources. and the NYTs who have been proven to be wrong time and again. I am not in to confirming my bias I want the facts.

    Something I mentioned earlier:

    It seems the White House is taking this very seriously:

    "The front page of the New York Times is not the venue for discussing classified information. The White House podium is not the venue for discussing classified information. We are here today having this discussing because of an irresponsible, anonymous leak to the New York Times," she said. "There is no good scenario as a result of this New York Times report. Who's going to want to cooperate with the United States intelligence community? Who's going to want to be a source? Or an asset if they know their identity could be disclosed. Which allies will want to share information with us if they know some rogue intelligence officer can go splash that information on the front page of a major U.S. newspaper."

    McEnany went on to argue the leak makes it nearly impossible to get to the bottom of the intelligence and come to a consensus about whether the Russian/Taliban allegations were true. She reiterated President Trump was not previously briefed on the information because there wasn't consensus within a number of spy agencies about whether the intelligence was true.

    "This level of controversy and discord plays directly into the hands of Russia and unfortunately serves their interests," she continued. "We have seen targeted leaks of classified information against this President and it is irresponsible. Phone calls with foreign leaders, meetings with government officials and now reports of alleged intelligence. Make no mistake, this damages our ability as a nation to collect intelligence. As the National Security Council noted just yesterday, to those government officials who betray the people of the United States by leaking classified information, your actions engager national security."

    McEnany indicated criminal investigations will be launched to hold recent leakers accountable.

    If two news sources speak to the same anonymous source and each make the independent judgement call that that source is credible then that is meaningful (how meaningful is determined by the background reliability of that news source of course). Pretending that journalists are just a rubber stamp is pathetic and betrays how easily you swallow your preferred brand of nonsense.
