    ...before or after the fact, and not divulging it to a responsible authority is a crime. That Kam did not entrust the Shin Bet or the State Prosecutor is perfectly understandable, considering the amount of graft and corruption we, sadly, are experiencing within the government and the IDF and the lack of investigation, if not outright collusion, by these two PUBLIC institutions. The Military Censor's Office was well aware of the nature of the documents Haaretz was to publish and did not consider them to be a breach of state security, to their credit. I have worked with the censor's office before and found them to be, not only professional, but outright helpful at times. I wish I could say the same about the Police. If only other branches of Israel's authorities would act according to the law, and not hide behind "national security" or apathy, Israel would truly make the desert bloom, as it once dreamed and did. Turning a blind eye to corruption is corruption itself.
