Romney Goes After Obama On Alleged Leaking Of Secrets

First, that’s a stupid idea. We have no friends in the Syrian civil war, and we should stay out.
Second, White House leaks keep calling things “secret”. I don’t think that word means what they think it means.
So when is he going to announce a strategic summit with our new allies Al Qaeda?
In other news...UN Special Envoy, Kofi Annan just quit his job. Boy, what a blow to peace in Syria THAT is!!
If it is secret why do I know it?
All to get the Muslim Brotherhood in power.
Islamists killing each other are not killing anyone else.
It seems very equitable to me.
Where, again - seemingly endlessly again - is our dysfunctional House Of Representatives who has the principal authority as to whether these actions are funded?
