An Op-Ed piece by David Ignatius, "When Does Blowing Secrets Cross the Line?" Washington Post, 2 Jul. 2000, B7, addresses some of the complications arising from Gertz' success in breaking stories either about intelligence or based on intelligence materials. NSA, in particular, has become concerned about sources blown through disclosure by Gertz. Ignatius concludes by noting that Gertz's "case raises this conundrum: Are there times when a reporter's professional ethics should give way to other claims? I don't know the right answer, but it's a question worth asking."
