INTELLIGENCE LEAKS AND A DOJ COVER-UP: WILL THEY TOPPLE THE PRESIDENT?

Did top national-security officials, with or without President Obama’s approval, leak sensitive and highly classified national security information to make President Obama look like a strong, decisive leader? Is Attorney General Eric Holder withholding information from Congress that might implicate him and other high Justice Department officials in a “gunwalking” cover-up? If one or both are true it could mean defeat for President Obama in November.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

    An unfortunately biased and self serving article which undermines it’s own credibility

    There is an old politically incorrect aphorism that comes to mind. Something about pots and kettles.accusing each other of being black.

    Or could political opponents who have like-minded individuals on the inside leak information to make Obama look arrogant to topple his administration? That sword cuts both ways. The truth will come out and whoever did it will go to jail. If people still got the firing squad for this crap, it would not be happening. Or could it be Russian or Chinese spies on the inside leaking to political opponents who take the bait for their own gains?

    Is it not enough to prove he is a strong decisive leader by the fact that Bin Laden, Awlaki AND AQ’s #2 (Al Libi) were all taken out under his watch PLUS the fact that the President is intimately involved in UAV targeting?

    I will not assume anything until some proof of this claim is brought forth but knowing how hyper partisan the American narrative tends to be, I think it won’t matter. Sort of like a birth certificate.🙂

    Unfortunately, this type of incident is NOT new. Nearly every Presidential term witnesses some type of intel spill, however intentional or not. I saw the press conference where he responded to the allegation. He looked convincing to me- and I have not seen personality or integrity issues from this President thus far- so I’m inclined to believe he really is personally pissed off.

    Where was the evidence of a “cover-up”? I must have missed that.

    I think the dumb/misguided comment about the private sector/economy doing “just fine” will do more harm.

    Agree with Carlo. Likely a media ploy or misdirection but hard to tell without the details.

    We get into these side issues regarding law enforcement or national security issues, that show up in our specialized areas of interest or overtuned crystal balls. I listen to the folks talk down at our local gas station and they could care less about these issues. They want to know when they are going to find a job, or if their kids, just graduating from high school or college, are going to find employment, and, want to know why they are paying $4.19 a gallon for heating oil and $3.72 a gallon for gas. It’s the economy, as always that tips elections, not concern over what bureaucrat (military or civilian) told what to who to the rank and file American.

    If these intelligence leaks lead to U.S. Military being killed then we should prosecute with great dispatch.

    Ed, I don’t believe that the leaks will do any critical damage to President Obama. President Obama is not as vulnerable as other presidents might have been because many believe him to be an idealist who is gaining experience. He’s already weathered incidents that might have been fatal to other presidents. I believe that many might think him absent professional experience, but ideally committed–and he is an excellent communicator. No, nothing should affect him at this time. People who believe him to be ineffective are simply biding their time until November. Bobby D
