Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday blasted the Obama administration over the disclosure of classified intelligence operations, leaks he said came from the highest levels at the White House.
This is the most highly classified information and its now been leaked by the administration at the highest levels at the White House and thats not acceptable, McCain said on CBS "This Morning."
On Tuesday, McCain said the Senate Armed Services Committee would hold hearings about leaks detailing a U.S. cyberattack against Irans nuclear program and called for a special counsel to investigate the matter. A report last week in The New York Times revealed how U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies used software viruses to disrupt work at an Iranian nuclear facility.
McCain suggested that the administration was leaking the information, which he called a breach of national security, to bolster Obamas foreign-policy credentials ahead of Novembers election.
It makes the president look very decisive, McCain said, and it gives very little credit to the other men and women who make these things happen.
This puts American lives in danger, revealing our most highly classified operations both in cyberwar and in drones, he said.
Senate Democrats have also expressed concerns about the leaks, but rebuffed suggestions that administration officials hope to gain politically from the disclosures.
I just cant believe that theres a decision in any kind of a formal way to leak this kind of a thing, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said on Tuesday.
McCain said that even if the disclosures came from non-administration sources, White House officials should have refused to confirm sensitive, classified details to reporters.
All they had to do was say this is classified information and we wont discuss it. And administration officials at the highest levels confirmed these facts, they obviously shouldnt have done that.
He warned that the leaks could harm American efforts against al Qaeda, which he said ways making a comeback in Iran.
The Arizona senator also said that the leaking of national security secrets had a human side.
The doctor who helped us with eliminating [Osama] bin Laden, he was identified and shouldnt have been. Hes now been sentenced to 33 years in prison, he said.
Leak at the Top??
White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett
What a laugh, if only I can laugh at this kinds of things Dems concocted.
The Vetting - Valerie Jarrett Keeps Obama Close to Radical Roots
The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American expatriates) found a foothold in Chicago politics through her marriage to Dr. William Robert Jarrett, whose father Vernon held sway as a columnist on the Chicago Sun-Times—for a time, the citys only major black columnist.
In 1991, Vernon Jarrett enthusiastically promoted a Chicago visit by professor Derrick Bell, who was still on voluntary unpaid leave from Harvard Law School, in protest at the facultys refusal to hire visiting professor Regina Austin.
Barack Obama, who had joined Bell in that protest, had just graduated from Harvard and had begun work in Chicago at the law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland, a prominent local civil rights firm.
Bells visit had been arranged by the Community Renewal Society, a left-wing group that wanted Bell to help it launch a racial justice agenda across the Chicago area. He addressed the Societys annual dinner, delivering a radical speech on the permanence of racism. Describing the civil rights movement as childlike, trusting, believing, and hopelessly naive, he suggested a more confrontational approach to race relations.
His Connecticut SS number would raise some serious questions, to say the least.
Jarrett’s mother IS Iranian, a radical, who live in....CAIRO!! Her father, a black socialist. This fits, and she needs to go.
Brennan quite self important as the “assassination czar” who is largely full of himself, and quite often very wrong. What with Panetta at defense the loop is complete. Wonder what Petraeus thinks of all this?
It’s not al Qaida in Iran... bozo. It’s the mullahcracy of Shiites and their influence in Iraq (you know, where we left).
Well yes Juan, what did you expect? Now that you’ve done everything you could to get Mugabarry into the White House, and everything you could do to support him, a light came on in that tiny brain of yours. Turn it off, and go back to sleep.
Anybody who would disclose such information should be immediately sequestered and confined as long as necessary. If it were the Chief Magistrate, the President, so be it. Whoever does this is a traitor.
He leaked the B-2, IIRC.
Heck, that’s who most folks voted for last time.
Hey Juan. Remember back in 2008 when you told that lady at a rally “You have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency?
” Sorry McCain, you said we had nothing to fear.
So shut yer piehole.”
B U M P
I wasn’t the only one to voice that.
And add to that Brennan's huge soft spot for anything Islamic (he even speaks Arabic fluently)!
They told me if I voted for John McCain we would have a President that leaked national security secrets to the press for political purposes . . . and they were RIGHT!
Traitors leaking and confirming details of the cyber attack on Iran to destroy America and Israel.
John McCain: Security leaks coming from highest levels of White House
Here is what the TRUTHFUL title should read:
The White House takes a leak splashing cowering Republican Congressmen
Of course, 0h0m0 takes a leak from the squatting position of power.
ANOTHER reason to IMPEACH Obama.
” John McCain: Obama is a decent person and a person you do not have to be scared of as President of the United States.”
Boosting Obama while running against him.
