The New York Times Admits They Were Wrong; Will Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats Be Next?

Earlier this week, The New York Times public editor Byron Calame admitted that the newspaper was wrong to disclose in a June 23, 2006 news article the details of the surveillance program that tracks financial transactions of terrorist suspects.

“My July 2 column strongly supported The Times’s decision to publish its June 23 article on a once-secret banking-data surveillance program. After pondering for several months, I have decided I was off base. There were reasons to publish the controversial article, but they were slightly outweighed by two factors to which I gave too little emphasis. While it’s a close call now, as it was then, I don’t think the article should have been published.”

(Byron Calame, The New York Times, 10/22/06)

After the article was published, House Republicans acted quickly and decisively to pass H.Res. 895 to express support for, and condemn the disclosure of, a highly classified program that is essential to tracking terrorist finances and preventing future deadly attacks. 174 House Democrats voted against this measure, choosing to stand with The New York Times rather than our intelligence community.

Now that The New York Times has admitted that they were wrong to report details about this program, will Nancy Pelosi’s House Democrats admit that they were wrong to support its disclosure?
