Skip to comments.Rumsfeld Urges White House to Keep Lid on Bin Laden Intel

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Sunday questioned why the Obama administration is releasing so much information about the operation that resulted in the death of Usama bin Laden and the intelligence behind it.
While Rumsfeld praised President Obama for overseeing and green-lighting the daring raid last weekend, he suggested the White House could be taking a risk in sharing the details it has with the public.
"The more information that goes out about intelligence, the greater the risks to our people and the less likelihood we're going to be able to capture and/or kill some of the people who would result from the intelligence take here," Rumsfeld said on CBS' "Face the Nation."

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Shut up damn it...No wonder nothing has been leaked...the President is throwing the media everything the want. Cookies for all!!!
Whatever will help in the 2012 election. It's not like American security is the highest priority.
Obama is leaking in a frantic effort to protect al qaeda. It would break his heart if anything were to happen to Zawahiri.
>Whatever will help in the 2012 election.
BINGO! Odumbo doesn’t care about our soldiers nor the CIA who have him his temporary ratings. It’s about the photo ops for the commercials we will see next year. I hate obama and proud of it.
In the end, the other side will gain just as much intelligence info as we do. It’s all part of 0bama’s plan.
Other than to give 0bama a bump in the polls, there was NO need to release either the announcement of UBL’s killing or the “treasure trove” of info for, say, a month or so. As is, every piece of trash mentioned in that treasure trove has been given a heads up. Poor, poor planning.
I’ll go further and say they should have not even released news of Osama’s assasination until at least a week or two so they had time to squash some more roaches. As it is all the roaches had plenty of time to get away. Not too smart.
Runsfelt right. I have had the same concerns.
“Loose lips sink ships” - WWII slogan still applies
The left is so deep into moral equivalence they’ve made ethical morons of themselves. Noam Chomsky wanted to know what we would think if al qaeda sneaked onto Bush’s ranch and ‘assassinated’ him. This is Obama’s bunch in spades, except that for them it’s never ‘equivalent’. It’s always, ‘The West is worse’. If we don’t do something to get our schoolkids out of the hands of these maniacs, it might really be all over for us.
The intel is in arabic. What they are releasing now is so much bull-oney. Pravda type propaganda. What a shame but to be expected from this bunch of traitors.
The adults have a need to tell the children to shut their damn mouth. Good Grief.
I heard a theory that the whole operation was a show staged to cover up Pakistan turning over Bin Ladens body after dying of other causes
And the last person that should know about the intelligence people info is a congressman they love to impress the press with info for face time.
Lets see what we already know;
(1) The attack carrier Vincent is home to Seal Team 6 Where ever its going they’re going with it.
(2) The baffle (Pie plate) on the tail rotor assembly indicates main rotor blades torques hard right.
(3) We told them we know who and where they are (instead of tagging them)
and this ag line says it all
