6/27/2006--Introduced. Expresses the sense of Congress that U.S. officials who: (1) leak sensitive classified national security secrets (secrets) should be investigated and, if necessary, brought to justice; (2) are concerned over certain U.S. covert operations have a number of lawful means to effectively express those concerns, including contacting appropriate congressional oversight committees; and (3) leak such secrets and are determined to maintain malevolent intentions should be tried for treason.

Expresses the sense of Congress that members of the media have the right to abstain from publishing such secrets for fear that U.S. operations may be compromised and Islamofascism may advance.
