Last month, David Axelrod said with absolute certainty that the White House was not the source of the leaks that the Attorney General’s office is now supposedly investigating (don’t hold your breath). The leaks just happened to portray Obama as Captain Kickass on the international security front, and even allege that our very own Nobel Peace Prize winner personally oversees a “kill list.”
Axelrod might want to go have a chat with liberal Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who doesn’t seem to be nearly as certain:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Monday that someone at the White House was responsible for the recent leaks of classified information.
“I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,” Feinstein said in an address at the World Affairs Council, The Associated Press first reported.
Feinstein said she was certain that President Obama had not disclosed any of the classified intelligence, but believed others in the administration were responsible.
“What kind of White House would reveal classified material for political gain?” Romney will ask VFW. “I’ll tell you right now:Mine won’t.”
