Source: FBI looks into possible White House leaks
wgal.com/cnn ^ | June 6, 2012

Posted on 06/06/2012 10:59:55 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

(CNN) - The FBI has begun an investigation into apparent leaks of classified information involving a U.S. cyberwarfare program against Iran, a U.S. official said Wednesday.

FBI spokesman Paul Bresson had no comment on the reported investigation.

Some leading senators have called for a congressional inquiry as well.

But the White House pushed back Wednesday against suggestions that it could be leaking classified information for political purposes.

"This administration takes all appropriate and necessary steps to prevent leaks of classified information or sensitive information that could risk ongoing counterterrorism or intelligence operations," Carney said aboard Air Force One as the president traveled to campaign events on the West Coast.

"Any suggestion that this administration has authorized intentional leaks of classified information for political gain is grossly irresponsible."

If Zero was a Repub, the headline would be "Presidential spokesman admits administration is 'grossly irresponsible'".

Seriously... OK, sarcastically, I really expect a lot from this "investigations".

Let the FBI do some digging, then get a special prosecutor. The Obama administration can have its own Scooter Libby, assuming one or more of the leakers lies to investigators. Best if the prosecution takes place after Obama is removed from office, that way he can’t commute the sentence or pardon the crime.

Apparently the FBI operates independent of DOJ oversight, because no way in Hell that Holder would allow this.

The leaks did not come from the Bush administration, just in case you are trying to allude to it.

Like data on SEAL activities for a movie?

I notice right off the Clintonesque “for political purposes” caveat.

And letting Iran HAVE one of our classified drones rather than recover or destroy it. How hard could it have been to destroy it????? Reminds me of when Clinton GAVE the Chinese and/or Russia our F117 stealth fighter via Bosnia rather than destroy it. I’m sure China/Russia already have our F22 specs. It’s no friggin’ wonder we’ve not been invaded yet. We’ve completely lost any military advantage we had before the Kenyan took office. I also expect all submarine specs to be released now that there’s been an ‘accidental’ sub fire.

This may be a significant show of independence by the FBI against DOJ.

Director of FBI Mueller is a Bush appointee and a Marine (platoon commander in Vietman) and most assuredly sees and disapproves of what is going on at DOJ and White House.

Leaking classified info in the Obama administration gets a yawn from the Media, “outing” Valerie Plame becomes a “Gate” obsession.

Can someone please explain to me why it's taking the FBI more than two minutes to locate the perpetrator of these leaks (Joe Biden) and arrest him (Joe Biden) put him in handcuffs (Joe Biden) beat him about the head and neck (Joe Biden) before taking him off to jail (Joe Biden) where he'll never be seen or heard of again (Joe Biden.)

Doesn't EVERYONE know Biden can't keep his mouth shut?

One rider loses it & urks-up, and that starts a chain reaction and the next thing you know, everyone on the ride is covered in partially digested cord dogs and lemonaids. It's something like that.

I think that is what is referred to as a non-denial denial. Jay, just answer the question: Did someone in the WH leak the material?

It's amazing how good Carney's gotten at his gig. He doesn't even have to think about it as he deflects fault to the questioner.
