Criminals Ask Judge For Help Attacking Victims

The question is, will they get it:
The Metropolitan police are seeking a court order under the Official Secrets Act to make Guardian reporters disclose their confidential sources about the phone-hacking scandal. In an unprecedented legal attack on journalists' sources, Scotland Yard officers claim the act, which has special powers usually aimed at espionage, could have been breached in July when reporters Amelia Hill and Nick Davies revealed the hacking of Milly Dowler's phone. They are demanding source information be handed over.
This is some really sick business. The Guardian exposed these bastards' links to the News of the World phone-hacking scandal, and now they want use espionage law to cripple them. Just horrible.
