Skip to comments.Leon Panetta Warns CIA Employees: No More OBL Raid Leaks
Posted on 05/20/2011 7:17:19 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
CIA Director Leon Panetta sent a message Wednesday to CIA employees cautioning that there should be no more leaks about the bin Laden raid and how it was conducted.
In the message, obtained by ABC News, Panetta acknowledges that its likely some of the classified information about the raid that has emerged in the press has come from beyond the CIA, but he warns employees to protect classified information or they could face investigation and possible prosecution by the Justice Department.
Yesterday, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen told reporters at a Pentagon briefing that they too wanted to see an end to leaks about the raid.
Mullen said very forcefully, from my perspective it is time to stop talking. And we have talked far too much about this. We need to move on. It's a story that, if we don't stop talking, it will never end. And it needs to. He explained that enough information had been made public that we are close to jeopardizing this precious capability that we have, and we can't afford to do that. This fight isn't over.

Obama is the one who needs to be impeached and tried for treason.
So, how's that working out so far?
Maybe he should warn the white house since that’s where the leaks seem to come from.
Nothing left to leak EXCEPT the identities of those on the raid..
Is there anything left to leak?
They identified the specific squad, which narrows that list down to a few dozen people, who are commonly known to train at one specific base.
If somebody really wants to identify them, it would not take long.
So far, I've met about 700 of them. /s
so the leakers even leaked the no-leaks message to ABC News, that stalwart bunch of patriots
Take that “Leon”
Quick! Somebody lock the barn! The horses have been stolen!
Yeah, that’s the guy, the one who killed Bin Laden.
All that wikileaks stuff was justa cover.
I might have changed my mind.
The Discovery program that aired last night on the killing of OBL gave all the credit to our tremendously brave and astute decision making Pres—ent. It was a barfer and played him up as most courageous White House sitter ever. I was amazed at how they revealed all the intel down to number of hard drives, puters, thumb drives and other storage devices. Even revealed that the secret stealthy blackhawks costs 60. million each yet they flew with unstealthy chinooks. The whole think stunk including the photo of everyone watching the action on the photo op blank screen.
Expect the leaks now to magically stop. This regime is all about taking advantage of crisis to further their agenda. They are efficient and use ALL aspects to advantage. In this case, they’ve determined when to stop the leaks - and now want to use the cut-off to advantage as well, to let it appear that they control and rule, they announce a crackdown. This also gives the appearance that they are not the source, when indeed they are.
Panetta. Sigh. Another retard. Barn door. Horse. Jackass.
These aren’t leaks from the CIA, they are campaign press releases from the white house staff.
Funny how after all those leaks we still dont know Sh%$!
Who are the Seals?
Why did they not get a medal of honor ceremony?
Why was there there no medical autopsy?
Why did they really decide to dump that body?
Why did they put out that OBL tape watching himself on TV in the “so-called” Al-Caida command and control center. Then later we find out it was the next door neighbor?
Why the fake situation room photo? Was that Ray Romano and Louis Dreyfus in the background?
We caught Saddam Hussien and did’nt kill him. He went through a public trial and a public hanging. Case Closed, no conspiracy questions.
I guess this president just loves good mystery.
Newsflash to Zero...American people are tired of your comedy of lies and myteries! Americans don’t like to be punked!
Obama continues on his “spiking the football” campaign tour today when he speaks at the CIA.
Leaks coming out have been for political gain so guess where they are coming from.
translation: a copy of the corpse photo has gone missing...
I ME MINE: Obama praises CIA for bin Laden raid -- while saying 'I' 35 times... 'Not worried about who's getting the credit'...
It is not the CIA employees. It is the politicians.
