Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, stated this week that leaks coming from the Obama administration are hurting national security. “The White House has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks.” Sen. Feinstein went on to say that the Obama administration need look no further than David Sanger’s book “Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power” to find the leakers.
The administration appointed two counsels to investigate multiple leaks on Obama’s secret programs to fight the war on terror. Expect no real investigation that may negatively impact Obama’s chances to secure a second term. This is a classic cover-up.
