    White House rejects calls for special counsel for national security leaks

    There has been a flood of intelligence leaks that have endangered lives and hampered further intelligence gathering. The doctor that got us UBL now languishes in a Pakistan prison due to these leaks. Why doesn’t the president want to get to the bottom of this? What is he afraid an investigation will find?


    The White House on Thursday rejected congressional calls for a special counsel to investigate a spate of recent national-security leaks described as among the worst lawmakers have ever seen.
    Members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees have been particularly angered, prompting a rare show of bipartisan fire against the administration.
    “Leaks jeopardize American lives,” Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Thursday.
    “I’ve been on the Intelligence Committee for 11 years and I have never seen it worse, I can tell you that,” Feinstein told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Wednesday in a separate interview.

    Step One of the "Getting a Special Counsel" process is always the White House saying No. Just wait.

    Of course they don't want any investigation. For most of the time I leads back to themselves.

    Obama will probably wait for it to be politically beneficial to him. Either this, or until he can spin something to make things look good and not reflect negatively on him or his administration.

    He's probably hoping until after the election if he can. Even if it's nothing, a special counsel never looks good.

    Of course not. The leaks came from the White House.
