The Justice Department has launched an investigation into the White Houses handling of classified information. The spur seems to have been the June 1 New York Times article by David Sanger, sourced to current and former U.S. officials, revealing sensitive details about the Stuxnet and Flame computer worms and other parts of the Obama administrations cyber campaign to disrupt and spy on Irans nuclear weapons program. By the way, none of the officials, according to Sanger, would allow their names to be used because the effort remains highly classified, and parts of it continue to this day.
Last week, legislators on both sides of the aisle deplored the administrations inability, or unwillingness, to keep national security secrets. Leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committeesSenators Saxby Chambliss and Dianne Feinstein and Representatives Mike Rogers and C.A. Dutch Ruppersbergerreleased a statement noting, We have become increasingly concerned at the continued leaks regarding sensitive intelligence programs and activities, including specific details of sources and methods.
In his June 8 press conference Obama tried to push back against the gathering storm. The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive, he said. Its wrong.

They've all got to go come November.
you really don’t trust the commander and cheat?
The 994th incident proving leftist media bias... Just two words...
There are people dead as a result of this, as well as a certain doctor being tortured in a Pakistani prison, and a loss of trust by our allies in intelligence gathering operations. The national security of the USA has been seriously compromised. But not a peep out of the same leftist media organs who were screaming for the heads of the entire Bush administration over Richard Armitage’s leaking the name of Valerie Plame (never an intel operative) to Bob Novak. And Scooter Libby went to prison over that, because the leftists needed their “pound of flesh.”
And Obama’s “offended.” What a sack of $#it he is.
I think BHO's house is red brick!
Sheesh, he can't even get that right!
Where is his outrage about the leaks?
Oh yes, he is only outraged because of the possible blame, not how it affects our national security!
I encourage everyone to do an internet engine search on ‘obama is the white house security leak’ on google, yahoo, et al. Let’s make this the number one search.
From Casablanca (White House?): “Round up the usual suspects.”
Just think of the info that could have been extracted from Bid Laden if he was allowed to live! But no, Davy Jones was his immediate departure! No prisioners, Zer0 has everyone’s six!
Just think of the info that the new underwear bomber would have been able to give us, had he have been “caught” by airport security, versus the leak of an operation of a double agent, exposing their technology.
Just think of the opportunities that could have accrued to us if Isreal vs Iran plans had not been outed.
Just think of all the opportunities if a Sxutnet worm had not been revealed, to allow us time to create even more devastating code!
All this leads to treason against the US Government, and I sure hope that these Holder “independent prosecutor” toadies understand the impact and scope of their mission before they report back to Holder to get their paycheck!
