Here Is A Story That Underscores a Certain Problem in the Obama Administration

Trey Smith

More than two years after sensitive information about the Osama bin Laden raid was disclosed to Hollywood filmmakers, Pentagon and CIA investigations haven’t publicly held anyone accountable despite internal findings that the leakers were former CIA Director Leon Panetta and the Defense Department’s top intelligence official.

Instead, the Pentagon Inspector General’s Office is working to root out who might have disclosed the findings on Panetta and Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Michael Vickers to a nonprofit watchdog group and to McClatchy.

While the information wasn’t classified, the inspector general’s office has pursued the new inquiry aggressively, grilling its own investigators, as well as the former director of its whistle-blowing unit, according to several people, including a congressional aide.

See the problem, here? Members of Team Obama can leak like crazy -- including classified information -- and EVEN when they are identified, they have nothing to worry about. Not only are they NOT prosecuted, it would appear they aren't investigated, reprimanded or merely chastised.

Oh, but if you expose the culprits or any degree of wrongdoing, that's when the boot of government comes down and it tends to come down very hard. You almost can guarantee that you will be investigated and, in most cases, prosecuted or punished in some other way. It is a proverbial case of shooting the messenger, not the party who actually is culpable.

Yes, indeed. The Obama presidency is the most transparent in US history...NOT! He makes one almost long for the days of Dubya!!
