Blackfive Takes Down Tice

Blackfive "fisks" the story about NSA leaker Russell Tice.

His take:
Unloved uber-geeks deep in the bowels of our intel apparatus have always been the prime targets for espionage, whether by foreign states or internal opposition media. Tice didn't like what he saw, but instead of biting the bullet and going to the Inspector General or Congress, he took a good long draught off the Grey Lady's teat.
Read it here.

I was particularly struck by the similarity of tactics used by "investigative journalists" and foreign espionage agents and how both target discontented mid-level staffers.
