You're a Spy

Fred Kaplan in Slate says that
if the Bush administration's interpretation of espionage law is upheld, then everyone is breaking the law, all the time. …

[If you have ever read leaked classified information in a newspaper or on a web site or heard it on the radio or television] the attorney general could go after [you] since the espionage statutes say anyone who receives certain classified information can be prosecuted.
This is relevant because the attorney general is prosecuting people on essentially those grounds right now. See Kaplan's story.
