Posted on 06/10/2012 9:54:30 AM PDT by Nachum
(CNN) -- Sen. John McCain continued his blitz against the Obama administration Sunday, saying the president was responsible for the recent national security leaks--whether he knew about them or not.
"It's obvious on its face that this information came from individuals who are in the administration," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union." "The president may not have done it himself, but the president certainly is responsible as commander in chief."
His comments came after the president himself forcefully dismissed the idea on Friday that the leaks came as a form of political strategy for the White House - a claim made by some Republicans on Capitol Hill, including McCain.

where’s Colon Powell?
would like to see Dick Cheney do what Dick Cheney does best......
McCain: Obama Responsible For LeaksDoesn't saying anything negative about Obama go against this doddering old fart's grain?
What about the story in last week or two about the WH leaking info to Hollywood about the alleged killing of Osama Bin Ladin? Wasn’t that classified? Shouldn’t that be part of the investigation?
Obama is a slimy liar with no regard for the good of the America we know.
It certainly goes against his idiotic idea that there is nothing to worry about with Obama as prez.
Colin Powell knew that Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was the source who revealed the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame to syndicated columnist Robert Novak in 2003 and neither said a word...just let the MSM, talking heads etc. run wild with hypothetical stories. Ask Scooter Libby if those two men should have gone to prison..............YES.
Now that the White House is surpressing-... er investigating itself, we will find out who is leaking.
He cut him plenty of slack. “He may not know about them....”
O;d Wormtongue is responsible for Obama. If he had done HIS job while running for president we wouldn’t be stuck with this loser we have now!
Of course Odummy knows about the leaks. I’m sure his Sept/Oct surprise movie will contain alot of info that was leaked.
McLame is the proverbial blind squirrel/blind pig/stopped clock. Once in a great while he’ll stumble on the truth.
obama (small o used to denote disrespect) said that no one “knowingly” passed on the information. It will be the I didnt Know it was treason to pass along top secret information ploy.
Is there anything worse than having John McCain on your side?
This is the brain-trust that said we have nothing to fear from an Obama administration. As far as I know, he never recanted that foot-in-mouth moment.
He was a fool then, and a bigger fool now.
I thought Juan said during his campaign that Barry would make a great president.
Wish Mccain would have done this when he was running against Obama. Then we’d have VP Sarah Palin now on her way to becoming president.
The only things McAmnesty has done right , is this and choosing Sarah Palin(the best thing he did ever).
McCain long ago settle upon Obama saving America.
Obama was who McCain was running for. Obama was who McCain wanted to run, and Obama is McCain’s choice.
By the time McCain realizes Obama was the problem from the world ‘go’, Obama will be out of office.
John McCain in a politically savvy move! Whoda thunk it?
Take the office crew hunting?
Every now and then McStain has a moment of clarity.

‘The Buck Don’t Stop Here’...unless it benefits Obama.
Remember the Navy Seals Team 6....................how did their names get out?
John John Jose’s only significance anymore is the embarrassment he caused so many by voting for him. Shut up now John John Jose!
It was Comrade Maobama who released the name of the Pakistani doctor who confirmed Osama in the compound. The doctor, after being identified by Obama, is now serving a 33-year prison sentence.
John is like a dead body that Obama just walks over on his way to any where he wants to go. John has made himself irrelevant a long time ago.
John is responsible for 0 therefore.....
Exactly, the sorry bastards give them up to make nice to the muzzies after they whacked OBL.
I totally agree
Look McCain, why didn’t you pull out the stops four years ago?
Yes, it is offensive and it is wrong. However, Mr. President you have yet to deny it. That statement is not a denial but a statement we all agree on.
No wonder they've got Holder in there now. They'll cook up some story and blame some low level national security council staffer. Everything and anything to protect the idiot Zero.
The Death of a Thousand cuts—starts—or maybe a better term would be the death by a thousand leaks. This is the de-constructing of Obama and his crew. Watch, he will be exposed as what he is—a weak ward healer who managed to get into the White House on an Affirmative Action bid. It was a job he wasn’t qualified for.
“It is not a leak if the Pres__ent leaks it.” will be the official excuse. Nothing to see here, move along.
And Lewis "Scooter" Libby didn't get anyone killed either.
BHO doesn’t understand the concept of “responsibility”. Especially when applied to himself.
Blame, when directed at others, that he understands.
That only means something if, "The buck stops here", doesn't require $ in front of "the buck". Obama's is a child and only men take responsibility for their positions.
I'll bet that Pakistani Dr. is already dead. You are right, some in the regime run media are already saying that.
You are right. Obama used a qualifier. He did not completely deny the allegation. This is Clintonesque.
Thanks NE Cons.
Drop dead, McCain.
