How Leaks and Politics Threaten National Security

OPSEC team, a new organization of spooks and soldiers dedicated to protecting National Security secrets, takes Team Obama to task for leaking sensitive information about National Security:

  • Human Intelligence can take YEARS to gather -- This point needs emphasis.  These leaks shatter trust in the United States, not just the Obama administration.  Not only do Team Obama's leaks hurt our efforts now, they'll hurt our efforts for a generation.
  • Their motive is to protect Operational Security against any political efforts to undermine it; I assume they'll still be here after Mitt takes over.
  • "Mr President, you DID NOT KILL bin Laden; America did."
  • The bin Laden raid couldn't be repeated, because too many operational secrets have been revealed.
  • Days after the bin Laden raid, Hollywood was invited to the WH for a briefing.
