Who wants a Pulitzer and life long fame? This is the biggest story of the Obama Administration. Who will get the prize and divulge the Source of the White House Leaks? Are there any investigative reporters in the MSM?

Where it entails any negative connotations, the MSM pretty much only does "investigative reporting" regarding the Other Side. Now, if you need to find out what dog Obama is getting for the household, the MSM will exert 100 percent of their considerable resources.

We know the National Enquirer has at least one investigative reporter. The Washington Times seems to have a few also. Otherwise, look to the alternative media to do the heavy lifting.

This may very well be Obama's Watergate.
Too bad we won't know before the election.

Between Fast and Furious, Solyndra, his birth certificate and now this,
there should already be a slew of special prosecutors and investigations.

Run that through a fact checker. Libby didn't leak anything, he gave conflicting stories.

As others have said, the MSM will ignore this, just like they did the story that came out last week on Obama's membership in the New Socialists Party back in Chicago.

I've gotten over my anger at Obama. Who he is and what he stands for - it's all there in plain sight for anyone with half a brain to see. It's the media that really pisses me off in the way they completely ignore this stuff :steamed:.

Are you really surprised?

How many of Obama's leaches including himself can get a Top Secret Security clearance, or just a plain Security Clearance ?

I'd like to see a law requiring people to have a Secret clearance prior to running for National Offices. Not fool-proof, but it gives a hint to where a person's background and his loyalty have ties to.

And that goes for all nominated Cabinet officials or advisors.

I think President Richard Nixon looks like a Saint, in comparison.

I'd take Nixon instead of this.

The question is, how stupid are the people who voted for him in 2008? We will soon see.

My anger at Obama is rapidly approaching the boiling point.

I have half a brain and I know who he is and what he stands for.

Obama is the new breed of socialist leader. Much like those that are taking over in Spain, France, Greece and the rest of Europe.

Their goal is a massive global welfare state that literally enslaves people and takes away their freedoms.

Obama's hatred for America, his disdain for capitalism and his contempt for the private sector is proof of that.

Richard Armitage was Novak's source of the leak.

How did you come to the conclusion that Libby was Cheney's fall guy. It seems your memory of the issue has been distorted by time. Google it before coming back with your reply.

You remember what Ronald Reagan said about "It's not that they don't know anything......."

This is't going to touch Dear Leader. Has "Fast and Furious"? He is surrounded by his handlers that give him "Plausible Deniability" to the point nobody can prove he knew the sun rose this morning. So far he is protecting them so they don't have to fall on their swords for him, but he can still deny that he has any knowledge of the actions that causes them to need the protection.

He may really not know anything...come on, it's possible. I'm not sure he really has a clue of what's going on until he's told. Does he really do anything in the way of executive administrator? He just runs around shooting his big mouth off with what somebody writes for him or tells him to say.

Right, as a matter of possibility, but unlikely that he knows more about Osama than his own staff !

If true, that's incompetent.

If it's engineered by his group, he'd have to be one who is responsible, the one where the buck stops.

Either way, plan on a career of speaking at liberal and AfricanA colleges starting this January... would be my recommendation for him.

He does have the power to pardon, and he seems to have no capability to feel shame.

History should be a pretty good judge on what he plans to do.

Libby didn't leak anything, he gave conflicting stories.

Essentially, he was convicted of having a different recollection of a conversation than did media-darling Tim Russert. This conversation occurred four years earlier, btw.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17020411/ns/politics/t/russert-testifies-libby-perjury-trial/

http://msnbcmedia3.msn.com/j/msnbc/Components/Photos/070207/070207_libby_hmed_2p.grid-6x2.jpg

Speaking before a packed courtroom, Russert said he never discussed a CIA operative during a July 2003 phone conversation with Libby. Libby has testified that, at the end of the call, Russert brought up war critic Joseph Wilson and mentioned that Wilson's wife worked for the CIA.

"That would be impossible," Russert testified Wednesday about such an exchange. "I didn't know who that person was until several days later."

Man -- this leak story does seem to be growing some legs... :whistling:

The average American Joe & Jane will either put up with, or simply ignore, a lot of bad behavior...And Democrats will gleefully empower Obama to exercise MOST of the excesses that his little dictatorial heart desires.

But when it comes to national security, and the very lives of our citizens and allies overseas (not to mention our own hides in-country) -- not even Democrats seem to want to be associated with condoning wholesale security breaches by this administration. At some point, I guess the most fundamental survival instincts kick in.

This article will give you an idea of what members of Congress and their staffers go through to be granted security clearances. Do Members of Congress Have Security Clearances? (http://www.clearancejobs.com/cleared-news/650/do-members-of-congress-have-security-clearances) Let's just say the bar is set extremely low for them even while most security leaks come from these very same people! :rant:

I recall an article in the Washington Post from over a decade ago that stated very few of Clinton's White House staffers should have qualified for even a Secret level clearance, but were given waivers because of their statuses. If all of us who have to maintain security clearances for our jobs have to undergo a thorough background investigation plus the polygraph (both every five years for TS/SCI) to be allowed access to classified material then politicians and their staffers should have to go through the same process. :steamed:

If you aren't going to vet these people properly, you have to control it from the other side.

My plan would be to announce that we will allow waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques on reporters or publishers that refuse to identify their source, and when found, a very cursory and speedy trial will happen just prior to drawing straws for the firing squad.

Problem solved.

And who will be n charge of investigating the leaks? Eric holder.

That's like appointing Frank Nitti to investigate the Capone organization.

Time for the American public to demand that the entire obama crime syndicate be thrown out.

Just a shame that there are no investigative journalists out there who would want to expose this corruption that is destroying our nation.

It's a tad more complicated. Florida is trying to "sanctify" the voter's list, removing the deads and demons on the list.

And Holder is blocking it.

If only real and qualified people vote, they'd be thrown out.

Good observation and likely the reason for all the "czars" he has appointed to micromanage everything. Whether Obama knows the details of every operation, and anybody that thinks that is a moron, it does give him deniability for each and every screw up.

He may really not know anything...come on, it's possible. I'm not sure he really has a clue of what's going on until he's told. Does he really do anything in the way of executive administrator? He just runs around shooting his big mouth off with what somebody writes for him or tells him to say.

You just described every general election candidate for the last 100 years or so.
