FBI looks into possible White House leaks

By the CNN Wire Staff

The FBI has launched an investigation into apparent leaks of classified information involving a cyberwarfare program against Iran, a U.S. official said Wednesday.

FBI spokesman Paul Bresson had no comment on the reported investigation.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss, ranking Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said he was informed that an FBI inquiry was under way.

The senator from Georgia and other leaders of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees issued a joint statement Tuesday deploring the apparent leaks.

"In recent weeks, we have become increasingly concerned at the continued leaks regarding sensitive intelligence programs and activities, including specific details of sources and methods," said Chambliss; Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-California; Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Michigan; and Ranking Member C.A. "Dutch" Ruppersberger, D-Maryland, in the statement.

    It is not just Democrats who have access to secret information! Many high ranking Republicans also have sensitive information! I seriously doubt it is Obama's people leaking this information!
    The GOP has one goal, and one goal only! "Get rid of this black man in the White House"! Listen to Boehner, Cantor and the true Republican, Donald Trump! Their minds are locked shut, with only one purpose.
    George W. and Dick C. never tried very hard to get Bin Laden. Bin Laden was "good for business" and generated huge profits for the "friends of the White House"! George and Dick put federal regulators asleep (without cutting their pay) resulting in the crimes of Madoff, the Gulf oil spill, the unending war in Iraq while giving billions to corrupt Iraqis to keep the war going. Same in Afghanistan, give lots of money to the corrupt "leaders" to insure the war never ends! And never question where this money goes! Continually praise Russia and Israel and never acknowledge these two countries as the primary sources of all troubles in the Middle East! Obama stood up to them. George never did. George was an idiot, plain and simple. Now, as an ex president, he wisely keeps his mouth shut! No other ex president has behaved this way! For awhile, Dick spent time on the "talk show" circuit to defend himself (mainly). The more he talked, the more ridiculous he became! Now he stays quite and gets his daughter to speak for him! What a slim ball! I doubt his daughter knew of the evil doings of her father and his idiot "boss"!

      You make a serious point, where did the money go! Haliburton,Chaney. What is the Bush family worth now? Bush senior is no longer head of Carlile (?) Corp. World wide corruption. Eisenhour warned about the military, industrial cabal. Well it runs the country. 20 years and we can't get rid of the F-22!

    There are no "Top Senators" any more! Only the irrational and the irrelevant. After close examination, most leaks within the beltway are planned and released for political reasons.

    “The 9/11 Commission headed by Lee Hamilton and Tom Kean did a very fine job. And they gave us a blueprint I think that both Republicans and Democrats in both administrations have followed.”
