Well, that didn't take long:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Justice Department has opened an investigation into leaks to the media about the National Security Agency's classified domestic surveillance program…
The New York Times was the first to report the story on December 16th and then officials confirmed its existence to CNN and other organizations.
"The Justice Department has opened an investigation of the unauthorized disclosure of classified information related to the NSA," a Justice Department official told CNN.
The leak investigation is expected to be handled, as is standard, by Justice Department prosecutors and FBI agents. Officials would not say when the investigation began.
No reason to get cynical here. As CNN, your liberal media, points out--this kind of investigation is standard. It's routine. And no reason to say exactly how fast the standard justice department investigation into a leak was. Because, you know, it's standard. Justice Department prosecutors and FBI agents standardly get on this kind of thing. It's the way it's always done.
