Schumer and Consistency

From the New York Sun:

Senator Schumer has been scurrying around Washington this week as if the gravest threat to America's national security is presidential aide Karl Rove. ... At each turn, Mr. Schumer has insisted that he is not motivated by partisan animus toward the Bush White House, but rather a keen interest in upholding the secret identities of our nation's undercover spies.

But that's nonsense. If Mr. Schumer or other Democrats were actually deeply concerned about the prospect of politicians outing the secret identities of our CIA officers, then they would have at least censured Senators Kerry and Lugar in April when in an open hearing they let slip the identity of one Fulton Armstrong, a Latin American analyst attached to the National Intelligence Council. ...
