The Winged Sphinx

I posted this antiwar essay, originally published in a book edited by Peter Laufer, about a week ago. But I didn't make a link for comments. So this be that.

Some folks are calling for the publisher, executive editor, and some reporters for the New York Times to be tried for treason for revealing government banking investigations. Since GWB himself had announced the program of investigations, I'm confused about the definition of treason.

Say, for example, that the president declared the nation was at war. Now say you had an undercover operative covertly gathering information, and -- oh, I don't know -- suppose some government official exposed her secret status to get back at, well, let's say, her husband, for critical comments he made against some policies of the administration.

So, betraying an operative on a government mission during a time of war: would that be treason?
