So they know who in the Administration was giving out the info? Have they known or are just now finding out?

If they have known and not said anything, they are as guilty as that person.

So, will this cancel out the amusing narrative Holder's investigators were sure to provide?

I don't think they are aiding and abetting. It's more likely they just want to make sure they are 100% correct before someone's name gets smeared acrosss the headlines.

So how close is the Donilon guy to Obama?


I've never heard the name before. Hopefully he is scum and will rat out the higher ups who pushed him to leak info.

Well, he's only the National Security Advisor.

We missed out on another racially tinged kabuki.

If true and Obamas Nationa Security Advisor is the source of the leaks...anyone want to guess a over/under on how many news channels will report on this and how significant it is.

My bad, never heard the name before... I didn't know he was the Presidents direct advisor.


Thought he was just a mid-level advisor on policy, a grunt who is expendable.

ZERO chance this gets reported without some mention of Scooter Libby inside of 24 hours.

No, that's my fault. My comment wasn't directed at you. It was directed in anger at the fact that the f*cking National Security Advisor is leaking information because he's more concerned with getting his boss re-elected than he is protecting America's intelligence and interests.

Sorry about that, Lsut81.

Thomas Donilon is a political operative that is a NS Advisor. He or Brennan were responsible for the Seal Team 6 leak after OBL was killed. Gates confronted Donilion and told them they needed a new communication strategey "STFU".

Anyway 33 Republicans have asked Holder for an Independent Investigation into the NS leaks. This administration is pathetic.

These were some serious leaks. If proven, serious jail time should be in order.

Of course all obama has to do is declassify the information and his administration is scandal free.

There's no shame in barry's game

I think there will have to be some hefty tap dancing to get that one to fly. If the info is classified when it's leaked, that's a crime. There are people who take handling classified very seriously, unlike Sandy Berger.

Scroll down to Elcid96's post

quote:

Notice how he never answered the question about declassifying the secrets.

Wallace pressed him 3 times about if the President or his staff declassified info. He deflected on all times except the last time.
Wallace asked him the third time and Plouffe stated "Did the President" and Wallace stated yes the President and "Plouffe quickly stated the President ....NO".
Notice he was specific on the 3rd time about the President yet never answered about his staff. Plouffe was quick to say the President didn't. He was never ever specific about his staff declassifying. That is who is going to be thrown under the bus.
Devils in the details.


A cynical person might think Ploofer knew exactly who had leaked.

HAHA....yeah or anyone who saw how much the guy was squirming in his seat. That was interview/interrogation 101. The guys mannerisms were text book.

Now the question is...was it declassified?
Who declassified the info and at what time?

If it was never declassified, prosecution.

Not a doubt in my mind that Plouffe knew exactly who leaked the info and that is why he jumped at Wallace when Wallace's question only concerned the President.
