Sounds like WikiLeaks? Think again. It’s ObamaLeaks.
Consider just some of the information that has been exposed in recent months — from the identity of the Pakistani doctor who helped us track down bin Laden, to the role of a double agent recruited in London by British intelligence in breaking up a newunderwear bomb plot in Yemen, to the fact that the President Obama personally ordered cyberattacks on the Iranian nuclear program — an act of war.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has said the recent leaks are the worst he has in his 30 year intelligence career. Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) recently declared, “I’ve been on the Intelligence Committee for 11 years, and I have never seen it worse.”
