It is a significant story. One that certainly has national security implications.
There's new fallout from intelligence leaks that occurred last summer - the unauthorized release of sensitive information from what is likely to be the highest level of our government.
There are reports now that the FBI and the Department of Justice are looking into the leak of President Obama's order launching cyber attacks on the Iranian nuclear program which used a computer virus developed by Israel.
By all accounts, the cyber attacks were successful. But the leaking of the information raises serious concerns about our national security. The key questions remain: Who leaked the information and why?
The investigation is reportedly looking at email accounts and phone records - and it's reported that investigators are looking at those who work at the highest level of government - those who would have had access to this very sensitive information.

And, the Justice Department needs to prosecute those responsible to fullest extent of the law. Without delay. There must be a "no tolerance" policy when it comes to leaking confidential information concerning our national security.

As President Obama sits down on Friday with Republicans who will soon control the Senate and the House, there’s no shortage of issues lawmakers want to tackle when the new Congress convenes in January. The economy. Health care. ISIS. Energy. These are all critical issues that must be addressed.
When faced with corruption and deception, it’s easy to lose hope. I confess that after seeing the lengths that some Democrats and leftists will go to to secure their hold on power, I’ve sometimes had a tendency to despair. But last night was a tonic to the soul, on at least two counts. First, what...
Last night conservatives stunned the political world. Republicans picked up 7 (and possibly 9) seats in the Senate, they picked up at least 12 seats in the House, and won a number of Gubernatorial races that shocked the pundits. But what does it all mean? First the basics. Republicans will continue...
