    [QUOTE=WestCoastOffensive;4489103]Whoa! :eek:

    Dr. Afidi courageously ran a fake inocculation campaign; he was no shady, drugged-out skell.[/QUOTE]

    You think there arent professional persons who are govt informants? There are risks and they are told about those risks.

    Not my contention; your post seemed callous, considering the magnitude of the effort.

    I'm pretty sure the White House flipped on the professional as well... The guy that got the data drive into the Iranian facility... I'm sure he's not scared to death right now. Unless he's not CIA. Then **** him? Right?

    Informants aren't robots, they are aware of risks.

    Seems too much of a coincidence these leaks didn't come from the WH... Are you saying that it is your belief they generated elsewhere?

    Okay. Did the Dr. leak come from the WH, in your opinion.

    As a sidebar, slightly OT, has the WH been responsible for any recent leaks impacting national security.

    Just curious...

    The idea that the hunt for Bin Ladin was dead is almost as absurd as the bolded part of your comment.

    Just by his defense of the leaks it is obvious that he thinks they came from the WH. Look at some of the libs on this thread. Most are saying the leaks are no big deal. That alone is evidence that they think they came from the WH. It doesn't hurt that some of the reported events include detailed conversations that occured in the Obama situation room. Who else could know that stuff?

    I have no idea. I hope they find out whomever is responsible for the leaks.

    Which leak is worse?

    This set of leaks.

    Or the Valerie "Covert Operative" Plame leak?

    Which one damages National Security more, potentially?

    A newspaper reporting a leak is different than a govt official leaking info.

    Kinda like when the WH leaks info to the paper and then uses that article to re-enforce their point. Crazy right?

    Only time will tell. Outing a CIA agent because of her husband is the definition of classless and to let your right hand man take the fall to boot.
