WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama calls it "offensive" and "wrong" to claim his White House deliberately leaked classified information for political gain.

The president says his administration has "zero tolerance" for the leaking of sensitive information. He says he has sought investigations in the past and will continue to order them.

That is a pretty clear admission of guilt from him.

So why is his “Justice” department fighting the appointment of a special prosecutor to search out the leak source?

It’s criminal that he’ll most likely get away with this like Fast and Furious, but history will be harsh to this creep in a few decades.

He's absolutely right.

Now, if he were to bring political operatives like David Axelrod to NSA briefings or something like that, then the President's critics might have had a point.

He’s really gonna be offended when he finds out Rush just accused him of economic sabotge. When you get a guy that’s this thin-skinned, just keep needling him. He’ll lose it.

How many of these leaks cast Obama or his Administration in a negative light or in any event, were not favorable to him?

Zero. What a coincidence.

Obozo states that the claim the WH is leaking sensitive information is offensive and wrong, not because the claim does not have merit, but because it is damning of his administration. Obozo must go in November. The damage to this nation is on a tipping point right now. Four more years of Obozo and the country will not recover.

There was a thread earlier on how to spot a sociopath, his answer fits the description. He expresses no concern about the leak, just anger at the question. LIAR

The leaks are just another failed attempt to make Tweetie-Bam appear as a manly-man instead of his real persona as a girly-man.

The MAN who got Osama!

The MAN who personally chooses the targets on an Al Qaeda kill list!

The MAN who initiated and carried out the cyber attacks on Iran!

What a loser!

Obama Calls Claims of Deliberate Leaks 'Offensive'

I agree.

But I would go a step further and label them treasonous."
Given the track record of this unamerican totalitarian bent regime, I don't doubt for a second that the administration is in fact guilty.

Their constant denial of unconstitutional and criminal acts speaks for itself. Their "white-is-black" statements have gone from arrogant to comical. Who believes any statement that comes out of the White House any more?

Well then, Mr. President, if it’s so offensive, appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate this and clear the air and bring the perpetrator(s) to justice. Oh.... never mind.... I forgot; you’re the guy who can’t even produce a birth certificate.

Sometimes the best way to lie is to tell the truth:

“The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive. It’s wrong,”

If you take the meaning to be that the ALLEGATIONS are offensive, that is one meaning and it’s a statement that suggests they didn’t do such a thing. It IS wrong and offensive to leak classified data, yes indeed, and if you take THAT meaning, they DID leak the info knowing it was wrong. This is a twisted statement worthy of the Clinton stamp of approval.

Wait- MY White House?

There is still time for Obama to claim that the leaks originated from a conservative plant in order to smear him.

We should not be surprised when a malignant sociopath says telling the truth about his rule is ‘offensive’. When someone calls Leaky Leahy treacherous, the democrats howl that it is offensive to call a treacehrous leaker ‘unAmerican’. well, using classified intel to empower your political lusts IS unAmerican treachery, and I would go further to call it treason. But there isn’t enough rope ...

I hope the traitor leaker in chief is offended by everything I write. This vile POS would sell out anyone of us, any country to get re-elected.

No sane country should trust the USA with any classified information until this gallatic waste of sperm and egg is removed from office.

He spent his entire life surrounded by filthy communists and is doing his best to turn us into a communist utopia.

Just imagine how much information he will give/leak to the Russians once he is free after the election.

I for one am offended that we have so many public school created morons who elected this scum of the earth. A purge is needed. Just like the progressives were sent back under their cockroach infested rock after W. Wilson, they need to be put under a much larger immovable rock once this traitor is gone.

The follow question was not asked: Mr. President, the question is not if you are offended by the claims; the question is are they true. How do you explain that the leaks do not originate in the White House when the leaker quoted conversations in the White House Situation Room?
