Intelligence leaks reportedly emanating from the White House may constitute a key issue in the Presidential election. Leaking classified and sensitive information endangers lives and national security. Many believe this was strictly for political gain and to enhance President Obama’s foreign policy image.
Article III, Section 3 of our Constitution classifies, “ giving aid and comfort to the enemy” as a treasonable act. The New York Times reported the White House was responsible for sharing both military and security information with the press and some believe this also benefited potential foreign enemies.
The White House campaign team provided Hollywood supporters tactical information for a movie concerning the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden. Just coincidently, it is scheduled to be released prior to November 6, 2012, Election Day and, is simply pre-election political propaganda.
Classified information was aired that a Pakistani doctor helped identify Osama Bin Laden’s DNA. It resulted in a 30 year prison sentence for his assistance in verifying the ultimate Seal attack was properly targeted. Who would dare assist the United States in the future after that breach of faith?
Critical information was leaked concerning Drone attacks and a joint United States and Israel cyber attack on Iran’s nuclear weapon program that betrayed years of trust between the two nations. In response to this and other revelations Americans deserve a thorough investigation, identification and prosecution by an independent prosecutor, not the Attorney General’s biased assistants.
