Rep. Peter King: National Security Leaks Came From the White House

Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Peter King (R-NY), sat down with Jamie Colby today on America’s News HQ to discuss the investigation into the leaks on counter-terrorism programs. Congressman King said, “This is the most shameful cascade of leaks I’ve ever heard or seen in government. We’re not talking about an incidental leak coming out … We’re talking about leaks involving two of the most sensitive programs in the United States government.”

He said it’s “clear” from those stories published in The New York Times that the information “came from the White House, came right from the National Security Council, came right from the Situation Room.” Rep. King continued, “For the president to say he’s outraged by this … how come he said nothing

about it until a few of us, including John McCain, stood up and took him to task for it.”

The congressman pointed out that the intelligence released in the leaks is so sensitive that Attorney General Eric Holder can’t even say what the Department of Justice is investigating. He said President Obama is trying to look like John Wayne and said there’s no need to put American lives at risk in order to build up the president’s image for the election.
