Paolo Gabriele And The Twenty Leakers?

According to recent reports, the Pope's butler, Paolo Gabriele, is claiming that there are at least twenty folks involved in the Vatican leak scandal. This is no big surprise. We've been saying here for a while that there was no way in heaven, hell, or anywhere else that this guys was acting alone. Really, the only other thing this latest bit of news does is confirm what we already knew, especially concerning the motives behind all this, which are allegedly rooted in protecting the Church and assisting the Holy Father in getting rid of some of the ongoing corruption.

Except for one puzzling comment:

Gabriele has previously claimed he was acting out of love for the church, but said in the interview that people were afraid to speak out from inside the city walls: "Ours is a state where you can get in, kill and leave undisturbed, and after 24 hours no one can say what happened."

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Where did that come from? This isn't the kind of comment you just whip out of nowhere and casually drop in a conversation. If I let my old lawyer side take over for a moment, I'd say this almost sounds like Paolo is sending out a threat to air something that really is dangerous. But that would just be my cynical lawyer side talking.
