Stop the leaks

It's been all over the news lately...yet I doubt many are even paying attention.

Someone has been leaking sensitive classified information to the press.

Case and point... reports on U.S. cyber warfare against Iran, procedures for targeting militants for drone attacks and the existence of a double agent who penetrated a militant group in Yemen.

Republicans have also criticized the administration for disclosing details of the Navy SEAL team that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in a raid on his Pakistan hideout last year.

Senator John McCain said on the Sunday news shows "Our intelligence people say this is the worst breach they've ever seen,"

He said "It's very clear that this information had to come from this administration. It couldn't have come from anywhere else."

Everyone is saying it's the president's team trying to make him look like a tough guy just in time for the election.

Of course...his team denies that. But, this information is so sensitive congressman Peter King says it has to be coming from the top.

This is putting programs and our people and allies at risk.
