The continued implosion of the Democrats.


A bipartisan dispute has emerged on Capitol Hill over how to investigate a series of national security leaks, including disclosures about President Obama’s secret "kill list" as well as the U.S.-Israeli use of cyberweapons to target Iran’s nuclear program. Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed two prosecutors to head a probe into the leaks, but Republicans have criticized him for refusing to appoint an independent special counsel. Some analysts question if this is truly a case of whistleblowing, in the public interest, or a case of covertly authorized leaking for political gain. Government accountability groups are waiting to see how vigorously the Obama administration will pursue those responsible for the leaks, especially given its aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers in the past. We speak to former Justice Department whistleblower Jesselyn Radack. [includes rush transcript]

I see it really bothers you there is no one to use as to change the subject of the content of the post.

I bet you didnt even realize you are doing it, are you?

Does it really matter if the story is true or not? If it is, then why all the diversion towards the whistle blower?

This is YOUR problem, you care not about the actual story, you care about someone to point the finger of this whistle blower.

What a retard.

*right after we go after them dopers in CA.
*right after we cover our tracks*
* right after the next Fast and Furious denials*

Holder is not even a decent mouthpiece, a walking pile of bullshit in a suit.
Granted no shortage of those in DC, but he crawls thru the sewers , as low as a snake

Joseph Farah tells you that he want's to use the birther issue to divide America. You believe the birther stories.

Obama has been accused of being a communist, a socialist, a terrorist, a Muslim, a nazi and who knows what else.

Accusations are just that. Some people get fooled once. Some people just continue to be the fool.

Youre still missing the point, but coming from you this is not surprising.

Again, the birther issue is an issue if there is evidence to support it. You dont have to like it either.

And I understand you changing the subject from the OP, because it has merit and trying to imply that somehow two wrongs make it right is all you have.

I get it, and you're right, you are a fool.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but previous presidents do establish precedents for their successors. If I'm not mistaken, SOP for president's leaking info for political gain is to have the VP's Chief of Staff resign several years later and never get charged with anything.

Of course, that is for leaking covert CIA operatives on nuclear nonproliferation assignments, so for leaking a drone kill list and info on Stuxnet I'm thinking maybe the Secretary of Agriculture can fire 2 of their summer interns.

Liiby was charged, thru a special prosecutor, which Holder is resisting.

So charge(?'s) give (?'s) 30 years, and then commute the sentence.

SOP as you say.

As you know Cos, the folks here are not about fixing anything, they are about philosophizing about "why" and pointing fingers.

They dont want it to stop, what would they talk about then?
