"I am puzzled on why Doug Hamann [sic] would be so descriptive of his source. If this is true, why would he put the TEC employee in harm's way? My understanding is that a good journalist would not provide such details."
Perhaps this will give you a bit of insight...
Doug Hagmann has a history of working in security. I'm confident that he is not rash or uncaring about the personal security of his source/s. What he has no doubt done has been to cloak the source/s identity in various ways: Name, location of employment, etc.
Now, he did not distort the facts of what he learned, he merely provided enough information about his source/s to allow confidence and also not lead anyone to do damage to his source/s. Therefore, to me, the name and location of any source is not as important to me as the information he provided.
If Mr. Hagmann had not done this obscuring the identity of his source/s, I would have wondered about his reliability or, possibly, I could have lost respect for him in also wondering if he does indeed have the vast experience in security that he is reported to have. But, however, I have not lost respect for him for this very reason: He has provided information without providing easy-target information for his source/s.
Isn't it common sense that Mr. Hagmann does not want to "shoot his messenger" and prefers to keep him/her as a future viable source? To me, this makes much more sense than to think he might have jeopardized the safety, security and life of anyone.

Our local newspaper recently carried a small article about DHS and a surprising list of U.S. Governmental Agencies that includes the Social Security Administration, Department of Education, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and many other entities, quietly purchasing a total of billions of rounds of ammunition and thousands of weapons over the past 18 months. Most agencies have a law enforcement division, but the quantities of ammo now being purchased defy anything seen before by agency employees. The purchases include many hundreds of thousands of hollow-point bullets, banned by the Geneva Convention, and which any hunter knows are meant for only one thing. Truth is getting scarier than fiction.

"you people have to be on crack! Mitt and his friends would never let this happen. they would lose too much money."
"You People"??? We know where you're coming from, steve (sic). Apparently you are an expert on 'crack' and about people losing money.
Sure is hard being a loser. And I'm not talking about those who are Right.
Stevie, does your mom know you're using her computer?

AS I have stated the TSA or so called 'Homeland Security' is the new Stasi ( State Secret Police), to add insult to injury the TSA and other 'alphabet groups' are becoming a form of 'Volkspolezi' or peoples police as Doug stated answering only to the 'Dear Leader' circumventing all legal and Constitutional procedures.

The only "fiction" is assuming to know another person's mind and, perhaps, I have assumed to know yours.
As for Ryan, I may not vote for Romney in November but I will vote for Ryan. The most negative reaction to Ryan comes from the Left/Democrats and for me that is recommendation enough to vote for him. If he were a woman, the Democrats would be going through his life and trying to find a physically limited child so they could go for the throat a la Sarah Palin.
I am convinced that the negative ads we see now re Ryan were contrived months ago when the Democrats went through every possible Republican "foe" and immediately formed an attack. They no doubt have a library of attacks with entries dedicated to every possible contender. What scared the pants off the Libs was when John McCain chose Sarah Palin and the Democrats have felt ever since that the Republicans blindsided them. And they do not want that to happen, again.
What the Democrats are doing now with Ryan is despicable but predictable because we are dealing with a pack of attack dogs looking for a soft underbelly. They are trying to find something/anything to use against Ryan and where it is not found, they will invent something in an attempt to cause a reaction and this allows them to pace away the time until they can [hopefully to them] find something to create a 'cause politique' and thus delegate Ryan to the Democrat has-been heap.
Joseph McCarthy, another man from Ryan's home state of Wisconsin, was punished by what is now known as low punches but has now been vindicated by proof that he was right all along when Russia released information about those times in the early '50's. In fact, some wonder if McCarthy eventually killed himself because of his beliefs and the consequent rejection and denial seeded by the Media and Hollywood. And undoubtedly some Democrats danced as his funeral, so to speak, because Democrats have a black heart in many cases and this causes them to go after Palin, Ryan, and others on the Right.
As one author wrote, when the Media "got" Nixon, this gave them an appetite for blood and they have been exercising this appetite ever since. Therefore, when I hear someone on the Left or in the Media (an oxymoron) use something negative against Ryan or some other good Republican, I want to say, "There you go again."

NoCrud: I'm from Indiana and we use "the"....... Didn't know that it indicated any terrorist activity or threatening attitude toward my Country. People who post rubbish about their President.....that sends up a small red flag for possible craziness and paranoia. But hey....we have free speech here. You go ahead with your fiction. Some of us just want the issues sorted out so we can figure out who to cast our vote for. It's still America and unlike the folks whos vote is simply cast out of fear, I'd like mine to be for something, not just against something. Are you still sane enough to understand the concept of hope. ps......how bout that Paul Ryan? Do you think hes really a Republican....or were the Young Guns just infiltrating the GOP to boot out the old dino's and team up w Obama for the take over?

Obama administration, including his czars and his closest Progressive supporters, are planning a manufactured insurgency against America. Using the media to garner both sympathy and support for his unfinished goals
