I think that this so-called espionage-affair around Anat Kam leads to two conclusions. First, the IDF should check, revise and improve its internal security. In addition - and that is something that I have not heard anyone talk about yet - it is clear ( from the documents that Ms Kam transfered to the journalist of Ha'Aretz ) that the army and the security services deliberately chose/choose to ignore Supreme Court rulings. That, in my opinion, is a much more severe violation of rules and values in what still is ( supposed to be ) a democracy than any possible infringement of the freedom of the press. Yossi Melman and Akiva Eldar wrote good analyses on the subject. Notice that Ms Kam is 'only' under house arrest.
