Friday, January 06, 2006

Whether the source was a leaker or a whistleblower, a traitor or a patriot, is unknown. What the future holds for the story's lead author, the New York Times' James Risen, is unknown too. University of Chicago Law Professor Geoffrey Stone joins Brooke to discuss the possibilities.
