Here is the question: How did The NY Times get this sensitive information?
Who passed it on to The NY Times?
We are talking about very serious "national security" information. In other words, this is the kind of information that only a handful of people have access to. It should not be very difficult to identify who "leaked" to The NY Times.
First, we learned way too much about the killing of Osama. We hear that an "Obama killed Osama" movie is in the works. I don't care about Hollywood making such a movie. I am just concerned that Hollywood characters may have had access to very sensitive material.
Second, we read about this "hit list", or how Pres BO personally selects targets in the "drone war". Again, I am very happy that we are killing terrorists but do we have to tell the world how we do it?
Last, and most damaging, we read about a "....cyber weapon known as Stuxnet, a malicious computer code that knocked Iranian nuclear processing centrifuges offline."
Was this information "leaked" to make Pres BO look tough? I don't know the answer and will wait for the investigation.
Leaking national security information puts our sources at risk and makes it more difficult for our people to do business around the world.
