WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Thursday he makes "no apologies" for his concern about leaks to the media that could compromise U.S. national security or put American military and intelligence officers at risk.
Obama expressed complete confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder and declined to comment on the Justice Department's seizure of Associated Press phone records, part of a probe into media leaks about a Yemen-based plot to bomb a U.S. airliner.
"Leaks related to national security can put people at risk," Obama said at a news conference.

Yeah, apologies.. they really screw up agendas something fierce.
Apologize here, alpologize there,, after awhile folks think your one apologetic wimp .. or worse.. nothing but another weasly politician.
Yeah, if anyone is going to endanger national security, it’s him. The usurper hates anyone usurping what he has already assumed as his own.
Let’s BOW DEEPLY TO SAUDI SCUM!!
This stupid kenyan is nothing more than a saudi pig.
Hey, Barry, we KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
He won’t admit to guilt because he can’t allow Holder to go under the bus. Holder is not likely to go down quietly.

Demonstrable criminals, proven liars, don't get to decide what constitutes national security.
Campaigning 24/7 365, self-serving or butt-saving is NOT national security.
Why, he’ll answer nobody: he professes not
answering; speaking is for beggars, he
wears his tongue in’s arms.

Marxists NEVER apologize. They just place their big fat boot on your neck.
There was no security leak. The CIA knew the AP had the story, AND WAS NEGOTIATING with the AP as to when the story could be released. The Justice Department made a case out of nothing.
Obama’s agenda: Apologize for America, but don’t apologize for your own administration. Got it.
How wonderful, Obama is going to play the game of defiance in which he acts heroic by never apologizing and protecting his buddies. He kinda figures that it’s too soon to throw them under the bus, because that would come back to haunt them later when they start writing best-selling books proclaiming their innocence and claiming they were just taking orders from Kenya’s commander-in-chief.
The IRS and AP scandals are either a smoke screen for Benghazi or attacks by his enemies.
The AP scandal is the worst for the administration. They ticked off their biggest fans - fans with the power to finally practice their trade. We will see if what happens.
I say it’s the worst, because like so many other scandals in this administration the media usually covers it up for them and diverts attention when they are not actively defending Obama. Without the usual cover from a fawning press the other two scandals may continue.
As far as investigating leaks - when will they prosecute Biden for running his mouth?
[[President Barack Obama said on Thursday he makes “no apologies” for his concern about leaks to the media that could compromise U.S. national security or put American military and intelligence officers at risk.]]
But yet he hires a known worthless anti-American who put soldier’s lives at risk as his secretary of state?” This man is shameless! He also was silent when CBS ran a story revealing our militaries sniper’s sniping tacticsa, which directly endangersd our soldeirs in Iraq- not a peep out of him then-
Amazing - “For people to express concern about leaks at a time when I still have 60,000 troops in Afghanistan...” - not “the United States still has” or even “my administration still has”, but “I still have” - yet ask the guy about spying on a hundred AP reporters and he knows nothing, and ask him about the IRS politically targeting taxpayers, and all he knows is what he reads in the newspapers - too bad he never learned to accept responsibility along with the rights and power he craves....
It’s amazing how many of the Bard’s quotations you can find to apply to current events. Shakespeare was a keen student of human psychology.
