    GOP senators press Holder for special prosecutor into potential national security lea

    Apparently Senators Lieberman and McCain are ready to out the Presidents's National Security Advisor as the recent leaker of highly classified information to the NY Times. A leak done soley to prop-up Obama as being tough on terrorism.


    Breaking: GOP senators issue letter alleging Tom Donilon is the leaker of highly sensitive classified secrets

    Treason, anybody? Fox News reports that, within an hour, Senate Republicans will hold a press conference announcing their letter to AG Eric Holder that reveals their belief that National Security Advisor Tom Donilon (and other White House staff) are actively leaking highly classified information to journalists — all as a desperate attempt to make Obama appear stronger on foreign policy than he really is.

    See also: Fox News’s story, “GOP senators press Holder for special prosecutor into potential national security leaks“:

    GOP senators are putting the pressure on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special counsel to investigate whether the White House is responsible for national security leaks.
    “The numerous national security leaks reportedly originating out of the executive branch in recent months have been stunning,” according to a copy of the letter to Holder, signed by more than 30 GOP senators and obtained by Fox News. “If there were ever a case requiring an outside special counsel with bipartisan acceptance and widespread public trust, this is it.”
    Obama is pathetic. Everyone in his Administration seems to be dirty.

    Wow, I thought they might save this gem for the October Surprise. Wonder how long before Obama cuts bait on Holder and makes him the goat. He's going to have to do it soon. If he waits until after the election and gains re-election, he'll spend the next term fighting possible impeachment proceedings.

    You do understand that basically what they are saying is "we have no evidence or anything, but we just feel like pointing fingers to make ourselves feel better!"

    So it's your assertion that the national security leaks haven't happened, we just imagined it?

    No, RD is saying that Lieberman and McCain don't actually have any evidence that Donilon is responsible. They just think that he is "potentially" responsible and therefore he warrants being investigated.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Then he failed to read the article:

    Their letter points out the recent New York Times story about the drone program and its list of human targets states the reporting involved interviews with "three dozen of [President Obama's] current and former advisers."

    It suggests that Thomas Donilon, the national security adviser, is a likely source in The Times reporting, considering he is “the commenter of record on events."

    I read the article. And you just made my point for me. They are just pointing fingers at the guy because he's high up enough to actually know details and therefor could have potentially been the source. They have no evidence that this was done to make Obama look good, they have no evidence that Donilon was involved.

    It's yet another witch hunt.

    They really shouldn't 'come out' with anything unless they have substantial proof - anything else is libelous.
