Posted on 06/11/2012 6:24:48 PM PDT by Kaslin
National Security: It wasn't the usual kind of leaks the New York Times received from numerous Obama officials. To make the president look tough on defense, they actually made America less secure.
What are the motives for illegally revealing national secrets?
Communist spy Alger Hiss, perfectly situated as a high-ranking U.S. diplomat, wanted the Soviet Union to win the Cold War.
For CIA analyst Aldrich Ames, who compromised an array of vital agency assets, the motive was mostly money.
FBI agent Robert Hanssen, who did even more damage than Ames, had psychological issues.
At the root of the new Obama leaks scandal is something that might just be worse than the motives behind these other cases, because it directly involves a presidential election.
Dozens of administration officials were apparently sources for Times writer David Sanger, who reported that President Obama has been secretly ordering cyberattacks against the computers of Islamofascist Iran's nuclear facilities.
Multiple sources within the administration also leaked to the Times word that the president personally oversees "a top-secret 'nominations' process to designate terrorists for kill or capture," as the paper described it.

Cracks in the dam.
David Sanger, seems like I’ve seen that name associated
with the administration before.
Have heard repeatedly that the leaker had to br someone in the rooms because of the nature of the leaks.
WH logs of who come in and when they leave. There are also records of meetings etc. Doesn’t seem like it would take too much effort to narrow the possible leaker(s)
Pat Caddell told Hannity tonight that he knew the leaker and he named him. This is bigger than Watergate ever thought about being.
Dave or Valerie; probably preparing public response. . .while Rahm - perhaps - concentrates on the 'private' response to Caddell. . .
(Have to say; irrespective of this; though 'not entirely'; have been wondering how 'Blago' is doing. . .)
2) The clintons and the dnc have approved this leak
3) They all want hildebeast in 2016... never seen anything like it
4) Investigation will have no problem proving it... the clintons have already provided the proof
5) blojob clinton despises obama as much as we do... but it is strictly personal with bill... we despise the man and his agenda... bill just despised the attacks upon himself and the beastly hilde.
