Who’s Lying? Obama Or The Times?

Both can’t be telling the truth. One is lying.

The New York Times says that the national security leaks that exposed our cyber-war against Iran and how our drone strikes against terrorists operate came from “aides” to the president and “members of the president’s national security team who were in the [White House Situation Room]” during key discussions and current American officials involved with the program who spoke anonymously because “the effort remains highly classified.” The author of one of the Times stories, David Sanger, writes that some of his sources would be fired for divulging classified material to him.

Obama’s Administration Press Secretary Jay Carney calls the charges “grossly irresponsible” and attacks Senator John McCain (R-AZ) for making them.

They can’t both be right.

My money is on the New York Times.

My money is on Obama. He would be common enough to leak the information himself.

"exposed out cyber war"?

LOL, Iran announced they had found the bug, the code is readily available online, and security experts around the world were speculating it was the US and/or Isreal due to the sophistication of the bug. Were is the big secret?
