    So what's the point of leaking all these details? For no other reason than to make Obama look good again?

    Good thing he kept quiet about Bin Laden. Republicans would have seen him let go a second time.

    Jimmy Carter did the same thing when he leaked info about the Stealth Bomber.

    Yes, he's leaking lots of intelligence. Too bad righties aren't absorbing any of it.

    Regarding intell, you're obviously ignoring the Bush years of leaking details, both real and fictitious.

    Partisan nonsense. Under Bush, if a plot was uncovered and stopped, the public was told. Thats just standard operating procedure.

    Bush wasnt trying to gain political points with it. And neither is Obama.

    This story makes more sense than youre original post. It takes time to recruit, train and infiltrate. Seems likely that we would see waves of Al Queda operations rather than just one coninual push.

    Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein calls for investigation into the leaks, these leaks jeopardize future operations…. And they came from the Whitehouse.

    Leaking? No. Oozing? Yes, like an open sore.
