The Obama Administration is divulging top secret, sensitive national security information in bald-faced, desperate effort to convince voters that he is a tough guy on national security. We are not talking about one isolated instance. It is a pattern of behavior that would secure an arrest and conviction for your average employee of the CIA or the Department of Defense. The list of leaks is disturbing:

1. The Obama White House, in the immediate aftermath of the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, told reporters that SEAL Team Six, a top secret special ops military unit, had carried out the mission. Subsequent to this the White House continued the flood of information and exposed the Pakistani physician who had assisted the intelligence community in confirming that Osama was in fact inside the compound at Abbottabad.

2. The Obama White House was quick to take credit for stopping a plot to bomb airliners and exposed a British double agent who had penetrated Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

3. Obama National Security officials filled the ears of New York Times reporters with details about top secret drone strikes against terrorist targets while touting the “secret kill list” as an example of Obama’s courage and steely determination to fight terrorists.

But the Obama team made it worse this week.

They leaked the fact that the United States was behind a cyber warfare campaign to disrupt Iran’s nuclear program:

“This is unbelievable … absolutely stunning,” a former senior intelligence official said about the level of detail contained in the cyberattack story.

The official noted that the article cited participants in sensitive White House meetings who then told the reporter about top secret discussions. The article “talks about President Obama giving direction for a cyberweapons attack during a time of peace against a United Nations member state.”

This is close to treason. Dilvuging secrets essential for our nation’s security in pursuit of personal gain. Americans must keep this in mind when they go to the polls in November.
