Bush, Eavesdropping, and Leaks

I'm linking this story about the New York Times report that Bush authorized warrantless surveillanc of Americans for one reason.

If you believe have ever attacked the Bush administration for leaking under-cover soccer mom Valerie Plame's identity, even though said leak in no way compromised national security or efforts in the War on Terror, and yet you don't see any problem with the massive leaking that was obviously involved in the Times report, can you explain how you reconcile those two positions?

Thanks in advance.
