House vote slaps news organizations

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House on Thursday approved a Republican-crafted resolution condemning news organizations for revealing a covert government program to track terrorist financing, saying the disclosure had "placed the lives of Americans in danger." Read rest click below...
Well this has me puzzled very much.  Who the hell in Congress brief the news people on matters of US Security intelligence in the first place?  Stop blaming the Press, because it's not just Press that is causing the problems with leaks.
This could go two fold also, many im sure remember all the other leaks.  If they hadn't of become public, there was a chance that Bushy may of gotten away with his no paper search warrants.  etc.  Perhaps old rules for the Press don't work anymore? I say as long as Free Press is not hindered, and Free Speech killed, then maybe the Press and Congress and find a means both can deal with.  How I don't have a clue.  But I am a little upset that the Press released info that was an delicate security in nature.
