How can anything be secret with this idea. You don't want to alert your enemy that you have a source of information. To do so would compromise the situation and could put someone's life in danger.

This country knows about "leaks". There is always someone willing to spill the beans.

Just look at the sensitive information Nancy Pelosi was aware of. She even sent "an aide" to hear about the information.

Just don't like this. Bad idea. What the hell is happening to this country. OBama's administration is secretive, so why shouldn't the covert operations remain so?

Obama's announcement of a transparent government just doesn't work for him. He clings to information that he doesn't want the public to get their hands on but it's okay for other very secret information to be passed along to MORE people. Give me a break.

Sorry, this craziness has got to stop. Someone is intent on destroying this country, jeopardizing the safety of this nation.

This rests at Obama's feet.

We are unsafe with him.
