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.

President Obama previously said he was offended by charges of purposeful leaking. In that case he’ll want to avoid listening to Romney’s speech to the VFW today:

Update; Well naturally… Feinstein today not only walked back her “the White House was in on the leaks” comments, but she blamed Mitt Romney for accurately quoting her. Gee, that sounds familiar.

    Somehow the Carter and Clinton admins. come to mind leaking secrets to the Japanese and Chinese. I also remember Col. Ollie North shocking his inquisitors by informing them they were kept out of the "secret" loop because they had developed a habit of leaving Top Secret, closed-door meetings and heading straight to the first microphone. If I`m not mistaken, that`s when Patrick got his "Leaky Leahy – Sen. Depends" nicknames !

    This admin. is the most corrupt ever, hands down, so it doesn`t surprise me at all that they stand accused of leaking secrets, for political gain or otherwise, but I have no confidence that the leaker(s) will ever be named, much less ever prosecuted !

    Fascinating how lefties must be walked back on their truth telling and they pitch a fit when their opponents quote them accurately.

    Rush said some years back, "Accurately describe a liberal and they will take it as an insult and go ballistic" ! Well, not ballistic this time, but they certainly hate the truth !

    The intellectually honest will not allow spineless liberal truth-backtracking or a liberal attempt at circling the Segway’s to deter the flood of reality.

    The sad thing is that the Zero supporters don’t have the minds to understand the seriousness or complexities of the situation and have to have it explained to them in a language other than English.

    And even then they don’t care about such things because their vote is only based on skin color and not on Zero’s performance or the damage he and his female have done to the country over the last four years and for generations to come.

    The Nuge was just on Glenn Beck`s show and told the story of the gun-grabber loonacy. Dianne Feinstein, who btw has a CCW permit, while talking with a dem. friend of the Nuge, pulled out a Shotgun News Mag, found a page of popular rifles and circled the black, scary looking ones and said they were the ones she wanted to be banned. Oddly, the exact same models of guns with wood stocks and / or bright colored metal finishes escaped here gun-ban-Sharpie ! AND, none of the guns are fully automatic which is a requirement to be an assault weapon !

    He also mentioned that Bill O`Really is claiming you can buy a bazooka without the gubmint knowing about it.
