5 Times the Obama Admin Leaked Crucial National Security Information
Breitbart ^ | 27 May 2014 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/27/2014 5:48:11 PM PDT by mandaladon

On Sunday, President Barack Obama traveled to Afghanistan to do a photo op with the troops amid fallout from the burgeoning Veterans Administration scandal. Announcing his visit, the White House promptly released a list of guests, including the name of the top CIA officer in Afghanistan. That officer is responsible for intelligence and drone warfare. The information was sent to over 6,000 email addresses.

Oops.

This is not the first time the Obama administration has compromised national security with leaks, either purposeful or inadvertent.

SEAL Team Six. After the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the Obama administration steadfastly refused to say which element of the US military had participated in the assault. Until Vice President Joe Biden decided to talk about it on national television, that is. Speaking at Washington’s Ritz Carlton Hotel in the days after the Bin Laden kill, Biden stated, “Admiral James Stavridis is the real deal. He can tell you more about and understands the incredible, the phenomenal, the just almost unbelievable capacity of his Navy SEALs and what they did last Saturday… I was in absolute awe of the capacity and the dedication of the entire team, both the intelligence community, the CIA, the SEALs.”

This put a target on the backs of the SEALs. That target came with consequences, when a SEAL team helicopter was downed in Afghanistan, killing 17.

Al Qaeda Tapes. On August 3, 2013, the Obama administration closed 22 embassies around the world based on intelligence supposedly received about potential al Qaeda attacks. That drew blowback thanks to the juxtaposition of the closings with news of the National Security Agency surveillance of Americans.

“But leaks have consequences................Obama is immune to consequences. “

In 2012 the American people had the opportunity to hold him accountable. They instead chose another 4 years.

Since January 2011 the Republicans in the House have enjoyed the Constitutional power to hold him accountable by cutting off funding for his programs and adventures or impeaching him and/or members of the administration. They have chosen not to hold him accountable.

Obama is immune to consequences because the people and the elected representatives of the people allow him to act with impunity.

Funny how 0bama’s security “mistakes” always have major consequences for OTHERS, never him, but what goes around comes around.

And still he walks around giving orders and having his picture taken with the troops. Amazing.

They’ve probably done more damage than Snowden. Difference is Snowden knew what he was doing. The obama people are too incompetent to know what they were doing.

Poison Photo-Drop .. decision to release photographs .. will imperil nation .. its defenders.
To: Sergeant Tim

Before he is done I fully expect him to release the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone anywhere in the world who has ever provided any information to agency workers.

The damage to US intel will last multiple generations.

I disagree. There was evidence of massive voter fraud in both of his elections. In some precincts, he got 115 -
120% of the vote, while his opponent got ZERO. That is statistically impossible unless cheating was going on.

Blaming the American people for his "winning" the elections is just wrong. He had to cheat, so he did not "win."

Time for Doormat Republican House Speaker Boehner to form another House Special Investigation Committee: on National Security Violations by Obama.
BTW, are you safer now than you were in early 2009?

I don’t believe cheating was sufficient to swing the 2012 election. There were a handful of precincts in Democrat states where the vote exceeded 100% of the registered voters but there is no evidence of widespread fraud on a scale necessary to change the results. Romney did not even raise the issue after the vote tally much less contest the election results which he could have done had there been evidence of widespread fraud. Instead after the election we heard his son say his father really didn’t want the job. He certainly campaigned like he didn’t want to win.

Romney was a weak candidate and ran a weak campaign with no compelling message. Romney tried to pretend he was a conservative but he had a strong progressive track record as governor of one of the most liberal states in the US which made his feeble attempts to appear conservative laughable. Obama was extremely vulnerable on the issue of Obamacare but Romney, as the architect of socialized medicine in Massachusetts, could not attack Obama on the healthcare issue with any credibility. Plus Romney allowed Obama to define him as a greedy wealthy businessman and would not take his gloves off to attack Obama directly. Americans respect fighters, they don’t respect wimps.

Given a choice between an unashamed socialist, and a socialist pretending to be a moderate conservative, the majority of American voters chose the real thing or chose to stay at home and not vote. Romney lost by over 4 million votes.

The voting machines in several swing states changed the cast vote from Romney to Obama (it happened to someone I know and the poll worker told her not to worry about it - Romney would really get her vote even though the machine/computer switched it). That was in Pennsylvania which was a swing state. Ohio was another one (someone did go to jail there for voting numerous times for Obama). Virginia just found hundreds that voted in both VA and MD in that election. So don't kid yourself - there was more than enough cheating going on.

And the republicans are backed into a corner as far as claiming fraud since they have that New Jersey agreement binding them.

I'll bet he's ‘accidentally’ removing the best and brightest from ‘the other side’... meaning those people who are most likely to stand up to him ... and aren't black-mailable...
