Serious Questions about the Obama Administration's Incompetence in the Wikileaks Fiasco

Assange is an "anti-American operative with blood on his hands"

Sarah Palin from her Facebok notes

We all applaud the successful thwarting of the Christmas-Tree Bomber and hope our government continues to do all it can to keep us safe. However, the latest round of publications of leaked classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.

First and foremost, what steps were taken to stop Wikileaks director Julian Assange from distributing this highly sensitive classified material especially after he had already published material not once but twice in the previous months? Assange is not a “journalist,” any more than the “editor” of al Qaeda’s new English-language magazine Inspire is a “journalist.” He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?

What if any diplomatic pressure was brought to bear on NATO, EU, and other allies to disrupt Wikileaks’ technical infrastructure? Did we use all the cyber tools at our disposal to permanently dismantle Wikileaks? Were individuals working for Wikileaks on these document leaks investigated? Shouldn’t they at least have had their financial assets frozen just as we do to individuals who provide material support for terrorist organizations?

Most importantly, serious questions must also be asked of the U.S. intelligence system. How was it possible that a 22-year-old Private First Class could get unrestricted access to so much highly sensitive information? And how was it possible that he could copy and distribute these files without anyone noticing that security was compromised?

The White House has now issued orders to federal departments and agencies asking them to take immediate steps to ensure that no more leaks like this happen again. It’s of course important that we do all we can to prevent similar massive document leaks in the future. But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July? What explains this strange lack of urgency on their part?

We are at war. American soldiers are in Afghanistan fighting to protect our freedoms. They are serious about keeping America safe. It would be great if they could count on their government being equally serious about that vital task.


Wild Thing's comment.......

I agree, there are a lot of questions. And this whole thing should never have gotten this far.

Sarah Palin raises a perfectly reasonable questions so of course the Obamabots will circle the wagons and attack her for it.

Beck was drawing some ties from Asange to Soros yesterday. Not surprising. So, if that's the case, then it was probably all done with the blessing of big O. Which explains the lack of action on this from the U.S.

During WWII and much of the Cold War, Asange would have been assasinated. He claims to have some sensitive info on the Russians. I have no doubt that if he does release anything about the Russians that he will "accidently" inhale some fatal poison.

Jim, thanks for sharing about that. It is just a gut feeling too. Obama and his agenda is destruction of what our country has been so it just seems he would not mind what is happening with these leaks. I agree Jim, the lack of action on his part, heck he has not said one word about it in any of his me me me speechs since this stated. Very odd.

Tom, I think you are so right about that, the Russians do not mess around. Plus they love their country, unlike obamafreak we are stuck with that hates our country.
