Obama prosecutes more officials for leaking to the media

The Obama administration is actively pursuing prosecutions against government officials who leak classified information to the media, more than recent presidents have, the New York Times reports.

You probably remember the case from last week of an Army specialist accused of sending video and other documents to Wikileaks, but there have been others, including an NSA bureaucrat who complained about the government wasting money on bad eavesdropping programs. That man's defenders says he was trying to expose problems in the government and didn't cause any real harm, but government officials say leaks like these endanger national security.
