I take it for granted that Babbin knows what he is talking about and would not made such a statement if these discussions on "background" with members of the intelligence community had not actually taken place. However, what I would like to know is why these people in the intelligence community are leaking the name of Rockefeller to Babbin at this time or anyone else for that matter. They obviously did not swear him to secrecy until after the hearings started or he would have not said anything about it on this radio show. What was their purpose in giving Babbin this information?
I'd srumise it's an attempt to shape the hearings tomorrow..in effect, a warnign shot across Rockefeller's bow...While I'm sure that the intelligence types, along with everyone here on FR, would love to get Rockefeller..see him frogmarched out of the committee..they are probably,a nd right so, MORE concerned for now with not blowing any more operational details..I'd watch and listen very carefully to the tone of his opening statement.
