Democratic activist Pat Caddell told Sean Hannity tonight that he definitively knows former political hack and current National Security Advisor Tom Donilon was the source of the White House security leaks.
hope he has some proof...
All roads lead to Obama...
What did it take them, about 24 hours to find a patsy?
Pat is brave. I hope the Clintons have his back.
That sure seems to be the case.
You can bet your sweet arse they do....
This is both anti-Obama and anti-Biden.
That is, right about who the fall guy would be.
Donilon may have been the source of the leaks, but who approved the leaks?!
Pretty sure Donilon is the guy Gates told “Shut the f-— up!”.
Donilon is the guy,after the Osama kill mission and subsequent football spiking, who was told by SecDef Robert Gates to STFU.
He worked as Executive Vice President for Law and Policy at Fannie Mae, the federally-chartered mortgage finance company, as a registered lobbyist from 1999 through 2005. This line on his resume raised eyebrows when his appointment to the Obama transition team was announced, given that the company had been seized by federal regulators.
Previously, he served together with diplomat Wendy Sherman as Agency Review Team Lead for the State Department in the Obama transition...
Donilon was 'criticized' by General Jones who once disparaged Donilon, for his lack of overseas experience, telling him that as a result: "You have no credibility with the military," according to Bob Woodward's "Obama's Wars." Jones said that Donilon was not good in his dealings with his staff at the National Security Council, displaying "too little feel for the people who work day and night....".
On the original source, Breitbart radio, Caddell says: "the culprit is clear.." On the linked clip here, Caddell corrects Hannity in the clip as far as the phrase "definitively know"
Hannity asks if he's saying he definitively knows and Caddell replies:
"I didn't say I definitely know. I said I [sic?] definitively who it is. It's a difference."
I understand this to mean he doesn't have absolutely solid evidence, but he is absolutely certain it is Donilon. He knows Dolilon, and he refers to the book as proof, thus:
Remember this is not any ordinary leak. This is as she (Senator Diane Feinstein) says putting American foreign policy and American lives in jeopardy.Caddell elaborates on Donilon more in the clip.
The New York Times review of Mr. Sangors book by Thomas Ricks who is a one of the Pulitzer Prize winners of the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post defense experts. In his review in the New York Times he says, And throughout Mr. Sangor has clearly enjoyed great access to senior White House officials most notably Tom Donilon. Mr. Donilon is effect the hero of the book in fact the chief commentator and records of events. Its all about this stuff. When Gates, when we had the disclosure of SEAL Team 6, Robert Gates went to the White House and told Tom Donilon, I have a new communication strategy, you know what it is? Keep your effing mouth shut. Tom Donilon is known for this. He is a political operative."
What were the leaks? Where they wiki-leaks related or something else? I can only find info on the investigation into who leaked them. I hope no lives were lost, bastards!
Cadell looks like the Dracula muppet created by Henson studios.
Longer show clip here:
Sorry, but I don't know what the big deal is about this whole story. I remember laughing when this political operative Donilon was appointed National Security Advisor by Ubama. And now he is doing exactly what everybody expected him to do, and what Ubama appointed him to do... political chicanery.
And some people are now surprised? How stupid do you have to be to be surprised?
(shrug) Color me confused..
