And the guardian never likes America at war. That's a love letter compared to Bush who they accused of everything from hiding facts about climate change to the Bush family being nothing more than a long unbroken continuous line of Nazi sympathizers. Pre-emptive strike being their next gambit.

So if you want to go there for your source of all things legitimate, tread lightly.

nameinuse,

The War Powers Act was intended to limit the president, not give him more power.

As John McCain belligerently blames the Obama administration for leaks about the cyber warfare programs against Iran, one need only think back to a few years ago when Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby leaked Valerie Plame's undercover CIA identity in response to Joe Wilson exposing Cheney's lies about the Niger yellowcake.

It was a totally politically motivated leak of an active CIA agent's identity to get back at Wilson. Too bad it also put informant's and other operatives' lives in danger.

David Corn in "The Nation" quotes Wilson: " 'Naming her this way would have compromised every operation, every relationship, every network with which she had been associated in her entire career. This is the stuff of Kim Philby and Aldrich Ames.' " Wilson has said: "I felt that... however abominable the decision might be, it was rational that if you were an administration and did not want people talking about the intelligence or talking about what underpinned the decision to go to war, you would discourage them by destroying the credibility of the messenger who brought you the message. And this administration apparently decided the way to do that was to leak the name of my wife."

Now, let's zip forward to the reactions of republicans to the Obama administration....

Rush Limbaugh claims, "We are working and fighting" to make sure Obama fails. -- September 28, 2009

Sen. Mitch McConnell: "Well that is true, [making Obama a one-term President is] my single most important political goal along with every active Republican in the country." -- July 10, 2011

Conservative real estate titan Donald Trump told Fox News Monday that Republicans should make sure President Barack Obama isn't re-elected -- July 25, 2011

Many more quotes like these - the republicans state over and over their number one goal is to do whatever it takes to make sure Obama fails and does not get re-elected.

Hmmmm... A verified history of leaking national security information for political gain and just about every republican saying they will do whatever it takes to make sure Obama isn't re-elected.

And now McCain stands up and blames Barack Obama for the leaks.

Interesting...

Check with Feinstein (D) and other Democrats about the leaks.

I don't see how it's possible that Obama is not involved in this. Holder appointing investigators to look into this is beyond ridiculous.

"think back to a few years ago when Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby..."

didn't have to read any more than this to know it's just another lie-filled post from the radio shack clerk--

the noted democrat gossip Armitage admitted he was the one who was blabbing this information. The investigation found no evidence that anyone in the White House leaked. In fact when Rove was asked by a journalist, he replied "Oh, you heard that rumor, too?"

One of the lawyers is an Obama supporter who contributes to his campaigns. He's a real team player!

Obama gets more and more pathetic doesn't he?

Truthseeker says:
I am a conservative, but in this instance, I think McCain was pathetic in obliquely accusing the President of leaking for political gain, without any basis in evidence. Of course Obama is offended by such an unsubstantiated accusation. McCain is still being the sore loser of 2008, I guess.

The Republican Chairman of the Congressional committee has been far more statesmanly.

The Plame leak was a sad affair, but it's not in the same class as the Obama White House leak, is it?
