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.
I discussed the issue today on America Live on FOX News and made it clear that this is a very significant issue with serious implications.
The fact is that the White House and top government officials need to cooperate in this probe. Investigators need to get to the bottom of what happened and why.
It's important to remember that these top government officials and advisors are all required, as a condition of employment, to sign documents agreeing to protect confidential information and not disclose it.
The FBI needs to fast track this investigation. It's important to find out who is responsible for this leak. 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.
We’ve seen this movie before. With the Obama administration, a familiar pattern is emerging. Trusting his own wisdom, President Obama resists oversight, goes to legal war against leakers and whistleblowers (at least those who make it look bad), and launches or proposes military offensives against...
Like so many others , I find it impossible to believe Brian Williams simply “made a mistake.” At the risk of indulging in armchair pop psychology, I’d say it’s far more likely that a titanic ego collided with reality, and reality lost. In my own experience, there are few things more humbling than...
You know its bad for President Obama when the late night comedy shows start cutting through his Administration’s mainstream media-memorizing spin and exposing his lawlessness. Conservatives aren’t the only ones shouting from the rooftops about President Obama’s reckless disregard for the...
I would say that I pity Chuck Hagel. After all, here was his mandate: Maintain America’s strategic position while shrinking American military power and amplifying the Obama administration’s desires for global disengagement. It turns out that the SECDEF could accomplish only two of those missions.
