Mystery in DC

Who could be leaking classified material from the White House? And where is Nancy Drew when you need her? We just don't know who it could possibly be.

From the Hill:

The Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday expressed worry that leaks to the press about a cyberattack authorized by the Obama administration on Iran could lead to a counterattack on the United States.

“This is like an avalanche. It is very detrimental and candidly, I found it very concerning,” Feinstein told reporters Tuesday. “There’s no question that this kind of thing hurts our country.”

Several Democrats noted the Iranian leak is just the latest in a series of media reports about classified U.S. anti-terrorism activity.

“A number of those leaks, and others in the last months about drone activities and other activities are frankly all against national security interests,” said Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.

“I think they’re dangerous, damaging, and whoever is doing that is not acting in the interest of the United States of America.”

Yup, it's sure a mystery. A mystery wrapped in an enigma, with puzzling syrup, and wearing an inscrutable hat.
