Efforts to investigate martial law in Watertown after the Patriot’s Day murders have been stonewalled by police agencies who won’t even disclose who was present in Watertown, let alone what each agency was doing. The excuse for not releasing any information about these instances in Watertown has been “national security”- photographs and information regarding the presence of specific agencies will tip off police procedures  by disclosing material which will serve as insight to the terrorists, and give them ability to further harm the Homeland. Capital H. To recap, information from Watertown after the Patriots Day murders is material protected by grounds of national security, such that it can’t be revealed. So along comes Sean Murphy, of the Massachusetts State Police, who is ticked off about the glamorized Rolling Stone cover of Tsarnaev, and he releases, without authorization, photos of Tsarnaev taken in Watertown. Thank you, Mr. Murphy, for spilling the beans that the State Police were there, and that there are photographs. But nonetheless, Murphy’s offense is the same as Eric Snowden’s–disclosing confidential information on the War on Terror, which cannot be disclosed without jeopardizing national security. So when is Carmen Ortiz, in the name of consistency, going to file charges against Murphy for his leak of confidential documents under the treason laws? Or does our government only prosecute citizen leakers and not members of state security apparatus? Charge him now! Take away his passport!! Send him to a transit lounge!!!!
