War News Updates: Can The U.S. Administration Keep A Secret?

The level of detail spilling out through media reports about crucial national security operations is raising the question of whether President Barack Obama’s administration can keep a secret – or in some cases even wants to.

In just the past week, two tell-all articles about Obama’s leadership as commander-in-chief have been published, dripping with insider details about his sleeves-rolled-up involvement in choosing terrorist targets for drone strikes and revelations about his amped-up cyber war on Iran.

I’m getting just a little tired of the Obama gang leaking just about every secret we have.

Sharing ABM data with Russia, compromising operational information on the Bin Laden raid (leaving a key source open to prosecution in Pakistan), and taking credit for a cyberattack that the Bush administration planned with Israel. I’m sure my smart readers can recall other instances.

Look, I expect politicians to take political credit for their actions. But apparently asking the current administration to weigh the risks and benefits of compromising information is just too much.

  1. Barak Obama is the best thing that ever happened to the US. Keeping Obama in office is vital to the national security of the US. Thus, anything that improves the chances of Obama being elected is, by definition, in the best interests of the country. QED.

    The man’s incompetence is only surpassed by his ego.

  2. This episode proves – beyond ALL DOUBT – there was no Roswell crash. If there had been, the President would have mentioned it during his last sitting for The View.

  3. so sad that snarky commnets becaue you guys simply would p[refer–[McCain? wow. Who got OBL? who did the cyb┬┤r war thing for afew years and got lots of material…but snark on if it makes you feel good. Meantime Obama has kept the nation safe from jihad attacks.

    1. Well, if you’re going to give The Messiah Obama credit for cyberwar and OBL (instead of NSA and the SEALS), then hey, let’s also see what else we can give him credit for.

      How about fucking up our relationship with the UK?

      How about fucking up our relationship with Russia even more than it already was?

      How about out-spending, in his first year and a half in office, the entire history of the United States through about 1984 or so?

      How about the trafficking thousands of weapons BY THE BATFE directly to the Mexican cartels, then attempting to use the resulting violence to justify further eroding the rights of US citizens?

      How about doing his level damned best to set race relations in this country back by a generation?

      I’m sure I could come up with more stuff, were I to think about it for a while …

    2. Look NUB, keep your mouth shut and your eyes open. If you pay attention you might learn something.

      Who got OBL? Bush. It was Bush’s intelligence directives that garnered the information that led to Bin Laden’s whereabouts. All Obama did was authorize a mission against America’s Most Wanted. So he pretty much…did his job. Gutsy call? Only if you’re a brain-dead simpleton. OK, you’ve got me there. Way to not screw up, Shortbus. You really doubt McCain wouldn’t have ordered the mission? Based on what evidence? McCain probably wouldn’t have dithered over it either. He probably also would have either kept the details a secret or worked to get our assets out of Pakistan rather than let someone who helped us rot in a Pakistani jail.

      Guess who also gets credit for the cyberwar against Iran? That’s right, Bush. Bush was also man enough to keep his blooming mouth shut about it as well.

      You say Obama has kept the nation safe from jihad attack. He’s accomplished that the same way he’s accomplished everything else in his life, through blind luck and other people’s effort.

      I’m beginning to notice a theme. It’s all about Barry. Polls don’t matter. The country doesn’t matter. YOU don’t matter. The only important thing is that Barry doesn’t lose.

      Consider yourself upgraded. Now, go get me a soda and I’ll sign your card.
