Loose Lips Sink Ships
The new and improved meaning of "Private"
It’s going to be a long four years if Obama and his posse can’t keep their mouths shut.
BUSH Betrayed–Obama Leaks Info from Private Talk
Need I say more? If the man can’t keep one PRIVATE conversation with HIS CoC (yes, remember George Bush is STILL President, and will be for two more months) under wraps, then he has a real credibility problem. This isn’t some beauty pageant or community organizer board meeting. There are things he will learn as POTUS that should never leave the Oval Office, including telling the Angry First Lady. Things that will keep him up all night and the next, too. He will learn of evil so dark and deep, even his icy veins will run cold.
He’s going to have to add the true meaning of PRIVATE to his steep learning curve, in that one slip from him or his staff could endanger American lives.
Note that these leaks come from ultimately from the President-elect himself; the article reports that Bush and Obama met without staff. That means that either Obama authorized the leak himself, or he has people who cannot keep their mouths shut. Neither speaks particularly well for the upcoming President’s judgment, and as for his discretion… well. In general, I would suggest that anybody who plans to work with the Obama administration keep in mind that their confidential observations and comments… will not be.
No worries for our enemies – they can layoff the majority of their intelligence operatives. They will happily put that new found capital into full-time bomb factories. After all, all they need is a subscription to the New York Times.
