Op-Ed in USA Today on SEAL author and other leakers

I have a piece in USA Today about what repercussions the SEAL who wrote the bin Laden piece should face. I didn't write the throw the book at him headline, but this about sums it up.

If the No Easy Day author revealed classified information, then he deserves the full penalty of the laws he broke. But if Pentagon officials go after him, they better work just as hard to punish all the administration sources.

Secrets are secrets, and leaking them should get you hammered.

Since the folks inside the White House who have been non-stop publicizing this will almost certainly face zero punishment, then neither should the author. But all that accomplishes is to devalue our national security to entertainment, or worse political campaign propaganda and that is a shame.
