Report: Obama’s Leaks of National Security Information for Political Purposes Got Americans Killed

Trump’s White House has been characterized by the media as a “leaky” operation. In absolute terms, they’re right. In relative terms, they’re wrong.

The Obama White House was by far the leakiest White House in history. When leaks come out of the Trump White House, those leaks are typically about human resources related gossip. Unlike any other Administration in history, the Obama Administration strategically leaked highly classified national security information to further their political interests in Washington.

A new report in the Washington Times lays out several instances where the Obama Administration leaked highly classified information about highly classified intelligence and military operation in order to gain political traction. In some instances, these leaks resulted in the death of US and allied military and intelligence personnel.

“When Americans heard Obama’s promise to run the most transparent White House of all time, this isn’t what they had in mind.”

Sources close to the matter told all to the Washington Times. In the hunt for a top Al Qaeda operative, Obama’s leaking resulted in the plan going awry. A CIA source told The Times “We literally had a bead on this guy’s head and just needed authorization from Washington to pull the trigger.”  Before the team to get that authorization, the effort to kill the Al Qaeda operative, known as Abdullah al-Shami, the plans for the operation leaked to the press.

Senior Members of the Obama administration were torn over whether to carry out the operation because al-Shami was a US Citizen. When some National Security Advisors began to lean towards giving the authorization, members opposed leaked it to the press. Upon reports of the raw intel being published in the New York Times and Associated Press, al -Shami caught wind of the operations and disappeared, going on to plot operations which resulted in the death of American and allied troops in Afghanistan.

Abdullah al-Sahmi was ultimately captured on the battlefield and brought to the United States to stand trial in New York, where he was convicted on terrorism charges under his birth name, Muhanad Mahmoud al-Farekh. He is set to be sentenced next month.

Obama Administration Officials described the Al-Shami incident as just one case of many where ideology led people in senior national security posts to mishandle classified information.

Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information during her tenure as Secretary of State became the most well-known case of the Administration’s penchant towards negligence when handling negative information. It is the belief of many in the National Security and Intelligence Community that Mrs. Clinton’s server was hacked by state-actors opposed to the United States.

A Pentagon Source, who agreed to speak to Offended America on the condition of anonymity, said: “When Americans heard Obama’s promise to run the most transparent White House of all time, this isn’t what they had in mind.”

The Obama Administration’s concerns over due process, which were extended to Al Qaeda operatives, didn’t seem to be extended to Barack Obama’s political opponents. Obama’s Administration did not hesitate when it came to wiretapping members of the Trump Campaign using powerful national security authorizations.
