David Axelrod Says Classified Leaks Not From White House
By George Stephanopoulos | ABC OTUS News 5 hrs ago
Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod said he is confident that newly launched investigations will show that recent leaks on classified national security information did not come from the White House.
"I think the authors of all of this work have said that the White House was not the source of this information," Axelrod told me this morning on "This Week." "I can't say that there weren't leaks. There were obvious leaks, but they weren't from the White House."
Axelrod said Obama takes all "life or death decisions" on national security seriously, and that the White House would not leak information that may jeopardize classified operations.
"He understands that when he commits people to missions that their lives are at stake, and the safety of Americans are at stake," Axelrod said. "And the last thing that he would countenance or anybody around him would countenance are leaks that would jeopardize the security of Americans on these secret missions, and the success of those missions."

And if they were, this dipstick would say so?
No reason to investigate then, carry on.
If the White House isn’t involved, then Scooter Libby goes back to prison? That’s what happened last time.
How would Axelrod know? Is a political campaign operative automatically given Top Secret clearance?
Well DAYUM, Axelrod said there were no leaks, who wouldn’t trust that guy?
Word twisting: by “White House” he means the physical building itself, not the people in it.
“but they weren’t from the White House.”
White House is a “meaning of is is” moment.
Axelrod means literally the WH, not the administration. Weak.
Ax and Barack must KNOW where the leaks come from, if they can assert where they’re “not” from?!?!
You can’t say what “isn’t”, without knowing what “is”.
I assert they DO KNOW where the leaks come from, and they are LYING!!!
Different rules for D’s and R’s...but you already know that.
Keep an eye on the words used when they try to explain the leaks away. Notice that initially they said no one was authorized to leak info. Now, they’re saying that the alleged leaks didn’t come from the White House. Both statements could be true. However, that doesn’t mean that a political ally at CIA or NSA might not have leaked with a wink and a nod.
See, I told you so?! Now we have unshakeable proof!
Maybe Ax called him up and he said hell no, he’s not going to dive under that bus. So this investigation charade begins to hide that Obama knew about it from the start, rather than Obama just outing the agent by name.
Hitler lookalike has spoken.
Is anyone in this administration not a f-ing liar?
As a steadfast rule, I will not believe anything Obama, his closest advisors, his cabinet and his family say, ever.
Did I mention never?
“Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod said he is confident that newly launched investigations will show that recent leaks on classified national security information did not come from the White House.
“I think the authors of all of this work have said that the White House was not the source of this information,” Axelrod told me this morning on “This Week.” “I can’t say that there weren’t leaks...”
Not a clear statement.
Just a bunch of hyperbole...
Well then, that's all we peasants need to know. Seriously, even if someone was dumb enough to believe Dipstick Axlerod, just whom did leak the info? If they are to believed then obviously they have conducted the internal investigation. Since the Rats haven't hung out any Repubs on the Intelligence Committees, it has to be one of their own they are protecting.
You missed the essence of wht axelgreasy said: the leaks did not come from the building called ‘the White House’. He parsed in such a way as to deny deny deny if exposed for a hack that he is. The leak probably came from Valerie Jarrett, not the building. She may even have been out of the White Hut when she passed the intel on to someone to leak it, so axlegreasy has another parsing out. ... When democrat speak, they lie. You just have to know how they make themselves believe their own lies.
That is, Axelrod is confident that their hand-picked investigators will NOT show that these leaks came from the WH.
What a blabbering brainless butthole!
Anyway, its all O.K. attorney Seargeant Holder will investigate he'll get to the bottom!! Possibly not before Nov. but hes get there.
I was browsing through David Limbaugh's new book at the bookstore. One topic he covers is the intense pressure the Obama people put on the media. The media people who got the information know who gave it to them, but they may be afraid of what might happen to them if they cooperate with the investigation.
Clamming up between now and November 6 could be a life-saver, or at least a career-saver.
ROTFLMAO just too good!!
I doubt President Jarrett has the guts to actually do anything as overt as that.She has dozens of little elves who are just lined up to do her bidding. After running shotgun for the Daley Chicago mob she’ bound to be well aware of the concept of plausible denyability and probably uses it well.
David Axelrod said he is confident that newly launched investigations will show that recent leaks on classified national security information did not come from the White House.
I think we are all sure that THIS investigation will not show a leak coming from the White House.
That doesn’t mean it didn’t come from the White House, just that this investigation is a friggin joke from beginning to end.
The Whitehouse said that Nixon wasn’t involved in Watergate
Therefore, he KNOWS where it *IS* from.
Time to get him under oath in front of a Congressional Panel.
Just trying hard to sort this out-—so, all of the intelligence communities are upset about this except the Zippy regime, but it didn’t come from Zippy? You don’t know where it came from, but you do know it wasn’t Zippy? Mr. Axel, exactly who in the NYT says it wasn’t the White House?
Then it must be AXELROD who is the LEAKER!! And he got the info from OBAMA!
Where is the Special Prosecutor? To leak cyber tactics, and drone tactics has put us all in danger.
This is the most shameful cascade of leaks I've ever heard or seen in government," he said. "It's clear from those stories this came right from the White House, came right from the National Security Council, came right from the Situation Room. ... It has to lead to people very high up in the administration in his White House."
I'm thinking the same thing. She has the personality for doing that. Hatred of the U.S. and the love for Zippo.
If Axelhole is telling Steponallofus the leaks aren’t from the WH I guess it’s pretty sure the leaks were from the WH.
I think the authors of all of this work have said that the White House was not the source of this information,” Axelrod told me this morning on “This Week.”
And of course Stephy asked for Axelrod’s sources for that statement.
very interesting info on WHI.
“What were seeing is an Anschluss, an avalanche of leaks. And its very, very disturbing. You know, its dismayed our allies. It puts American lives in jeopardy. It puts our nations security in jeopardy.”
“The term Anschluss is most often associated with Nazi Germany namely the reunification of Adolph Hitlers native Austria with the German state a move that was forbidden by the post WWI Treaty of Versailles. Casual observers of the Feinstein interview were likely confused by the Senators use of the term, or simply ignored it altogether.”
And the WHI said about Kam Kuwata..you will have to find it. FR still doesn’t like WHI
But the use of the word doesn’t make sense in Feinstein’s comments..unless it was done on purpose for some reason.
There are two critical rules about lying.
First, NEVER lie.
Second, if you ever do lie, NEVER stop.
Axelrod lives by the second rule.
They need dough, lots of it.
Rumors were last time some 300 mill came from the mid-east.Perhaps some of that dough dried up when the faux ben laden hit supposedly occurred,who knows.
If releasing a few state secrets that will aid terrorists causes and pry loose some dough from say the saudis who play both sides, well why the hell not. Getting caught however was never in the game plan.
Axelrod is an awful liar. He looks sleazy and non-credible. Just another incompetent leftist who thinks he has God given talent. Like telepromter Obama and his nervous tool Eric Holder
The reporter on CNN says he did talk to the O folks and says this
“Sanger contended that how Obama conducts himself in the theater of international military action is key for the public to know, and is a necessary story for the media to report on, regardless of the secrecy associated with national security issues.”
Wow like minds,I was just over there myself. It’s a treasure trove from time to time.
Sounds like code for the NYT is a self-hating rag that will print anything to sell a few more papers and stay alive another month.
Ax is the target. Jarette and Holder are going to pin this on him to get rid of him.
Actions have consequences, Ax. You attempt to end run the tribal elders and you get busted.
So in other words, Aexload walked through the tunnel from the White House to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building before he leaked the info to the press.
Which equivalent to a human toilet.
First, I’m sure he IS confident the investigation will clear obama.
Second, why wasn’t the WH screaming to high Heaven the minute these articles were published?
Doubtful. The regime dies an awful death and really quickly without triangulation and astroturfing from this lying scoundrel.He is key to keeping their leaky ship afloat.Without a spinning media that is fed lies almost hourly this regime folds and big time.
