Imagine the following: A small group of white supremacist computer geeks were discovered to be stealing government property from dozens of Republican congressional offices for whom they provided information technology services. They are also suspected of stealing legislators' emails and other House communications - possibly including traffic involving the most sensitive national security-related committees on which some of their employers served.

Think this story would be basically ignored by the mainstream media?

Well, that is exactly what is happening to an actual scandal with all these features - only the congressmen are all Democrats and the IT contractors are all Muslims, originally from Pakistan. And with the notable exception of the Daily Caller and a few other, online publications, all we've heard from the press has been crickets.

This travesty demands a rigorous damage-assessment, an overhauled counter-intelligence capability and a truly free press.

The latest from Frank Gaffney, Jr.  Frank is the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C.  Mr. Gaffney formerly acted as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy during the Reagan Administration, following four years of service as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Forces and Arms Control Policy.
