Obama's white house has leaked national security secrets to improve his chances of re-election. Obama's attorney general Eric Holder has appointed two attorneys that report to him to investigate the leaks including one Obama donor with close personal ties to Eric Holder.


White House security leaks continue to fester as critics react to a flow of leaks from the White House that some believe are calculated to burnish the president's national security credentials at the expense of national security.




On Sunday, Rep. Peter King, R-New York, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, condemned the leaks on Fox News, insisting they could only have come directly from the White House.

"This is the most shameful cascade of leaks I've ever heard or seen in government," King said. "It's clear from those stories this came right from the White House, came right from the National Security Council, came right from the Situation Room. ... It has to lead to people very high up in the administration in his White House."

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., went on CNN on Sunday andcalled for a special prosecutor, arguing that Attorney General Eric Holder has no credibility with Congress.

McCain described the leaks as the "most egregious breach of intelligence in anybody's memory." Pointing to ongoing congressional frustration with Holder's lack of coopertion on the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, McCain insisted that Holder's low credibility with Congress prevented him from leading the leaks investigation. "This needs a special counsel, someone entirely independent of the Justice Department," McCain said.

    So let me get this straight...Obama's attorney general has sided with Puerto Rican terrorists, has sided with the black panthers, has sided with Mexican drug cartels and has obstructed investigations by congress into his actions will now appoint an Obama donor to investigate Obama?

    Gee, I wonder how this is going to turn out.

    holder fast and furious

    This is one reason why I start to think that maybe--just maybe--we need an independently elected Attorney General, who gets elected in the odd years.

    I choose that so that the GOP members wouldn't bitch about someone not being impartial. I watch the Presidents news conference. I agree that it would be dangerous to let classified information be released to the public.

    Michelle Malkin was fit to be tied. She handed Juan Williams his head in that discussion. The leaks are of the most serious national security implications. I think it was all unnecessary as well. People like me who appreciate killing bad guys and all isn't going to vote for Obama under any circumstances. To appoint a hapless donor that owes his past, (and probably future), career to Eric Holder is Chicago politics at its finest.

    There should be an independent investigation into most of Obama's actions, cabinet, and administration.....but, who will do it, and who will enforce it? Much more of this corruption and the only independent investigation will have to be done by vigilanties....

    Remember when they tried to get to the bottom of the Valerie Plame leak? The people in the WH just refused to show up when subpoenas were issued. That really was a political punishment from the goons in the WH. Did that not put in danger all who she had been in contact with. That was deliberate and we never did get to the bottom of who exactly ordered it done. I think it was Carl Rove (his style) together with Darth Vader.

    Eric Holder is a bad joke. He needs to be removed from office, along with his incompetent, ineligible boss. A special prosecutor needs to be appointed.

    Special prosecutors are just a more expensive witch hunt. Ken Star cost us million of dollars to decide that Clinton was a womanizer. I wish I would live long enough to find out from Monica who put her up to it. Honestly who pulls their dress up and asked the President if he likes your thong. They knew his weakness alright.

    I'm pretty much for independent counsel whenever anything comes up regarding WH or congress or an agency of the government. That way we don't end up with even a "hint" of impropriety.

    Actually, Attorney General Holder is the one who needs to be investigated. His entire reign has been one of stonewalling, obfuscation, lies, and misdirection, oh and let us not forget the smugness and smirk. His contempt of Congress is growing every day. This man needs to go, and then needs to be investigated for all of the crimes that he has covered up under the guise of "Attorney General"...
