Pelosi to McCain: ‘Really sad’ to say security leaks were ‘politically motivated’ by White House [VIDEO]
By Nicholas Ballasy | The Daily Caller – Thu, Jun 7, 2012

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi fired back at Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain for claiming that the “highest levels” of the Obama administration leaked sensitive national security information.

“The fact that this administration would aggressively pursue leaks by a 22-year-old Army private in the Wikileaks matter and former CIA employees in other leaks cases, but apparently sanction leaks made by senior administration officials for political purposes is simply unacceptable,” McCain said on Wednesday.

The former presidential candidate also said this is “the most highly classified information and it’s now been leaked by the administration at the highest levels at the White House and that’s not acceptable.”

Pelosi was asked to weigh in on McCain’s statement at her weekly press briefing.

“Senator McCain: For anybody to say that a leak — and I don’t care if — party one way or another — that an intelligence leak is politically motivated is really, a really sad statement. Of course, there wouldn’t, you know, there shouldn’t be leaks,” Pelosi said at the Capitol Thursday.

She, of all people, can say that with a straight face. That skin is stretched so tight she has only one facial expression.

I, for one, am very sad to say the leaks are politically motivated.

Imagine that Nancy, now why on earth would anyone suggest that secret information only known outside the WH by 10-12 people would end up on the FRONT PAGE OF THE NYT’S, only when it makes O’Dammit look like George S. Patton. Time is over due to put the nations Law Enforcement Officer on the case. Holder will get to the bottom of it. YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!

McLame has an opportunity to make amends for his pathetic ‘08 campaign that ushered in the Obama era.

Hopefully he will summon the courage he displayed as a VNV and prisoner of war and expose the corrupt ineptitude of Obama and Pelosi.

Obama did wikileaks.

When a hacker firm hounded Adrian Lamo, the whistleblower, and sought to support Bradley Manning, that company was an Obama administration defense contractor.
The trail isn’t even hidden.

Obama has been behind Anonymous, OWS and MB every step of the way.

Honestly, some of the statements that Pelosi has made recently make me wonder if she is suffering from some sort of dementia. Her statements on Obamacare were just bizarre. Does anyone know how old she is?

When Pelosi is harping in to defend against some accusation it is a sure bet that accusation is accurate.

The woman has neither integrity or character and she has made so much money as part of the Democrat criminal party she will say and do anything to protect her fellow mobsters.

Please note that she did not deny it.

She just said it's sad.

And it really is.

Now watch the Captain will start maneuvering to the good side of Pelosi and those who join Pelosi in upbraiding him.
Like I have said before McCain suffers from Stockholm syndrome. Due to this he should never ever have been in politics.

that an intelligence leak is politically motivated is really, a really sad statement.

At least, this is consistent with her feelings on the Valerie Plame leaks. /sarcasm

“Could Senator Leahy be reached for comment?”

I’ve been wondering in all this if Leaky was given a secret, high level position in the WH to facilitate these serious security breaches...

Exactly...

In Donald Rumsfeld’s book he says during the Afghanistan operations, senators McCain and Graham skipped off holding hands on some kind of a gay holiday to Uzbekistan and undermined our war effort there in the name of ‘human rights.’

Never mind that the local terrorist thugs were trying to storm a prison and free their lunatic comrades on May 13, 2005.

Rumsfeld’s documented account begins on page 633 of his hardback book Known and Unknown.

I urge everyone to buy this book, all proceeds go to families of soldiers who have fallen in the war on terrorism.

She has got to be in the safest district in the country. No one else could consistently say things so stupid and still get reelected.
