Not only did former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta leak the name of the Navy SEAL group responsible for the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011, but the release of the Pentagon Inspector Generals (IG) report revealing the incident, which was ready in July 2012, was delayed until now.
In the spring of 2012, GOP members accused Barack Obamas administration of leaking national security secrets to help Obama get reelected, but the administration denied it.
At a CIA awards ceremony on June 24, 2011, Panetta named the SEAL group and its commander. Among those present were 1300 military and intelligence employees, as well as Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal. The IG report also stated that Panetta revealed classified information designated as top secret and secret.
Panetta served as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency until July 1, 2011, when he took over the office of the Secretary of Defense for the retiring Robert Gates. Panetta was in charge of the Department of Defense when the DOD's IG investigation into leaks about the bin Laden raid was being conducted.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
All’s fair in Democrat rigged elections.
So, America, what do you CALL someone like Panetta,
who let al Qaeda KNOW Classified Secrets before Congress?
YOu mean the same Panetta that made sure that Benghazi went down the way it did....my words all start with T
Why isn’t Panetta swing from the end of a rope tied to a DC lamp post?
It was just a bump in the road. It was a long time ago. The war on terror is over. What difference does it make?
Most corrupt administration in history!!
Zero dark thirty? That sounds racist.
Panetta should have been a known entity long ago to anyone awake. That Congress ever let him assume positions of power in our government is the real scandal and crime here.
Same goes with the rest of the ongoing Communist/Muslim coup we’ve been witnessing for a decade now.
Sounds as if Job One for the entire Administration throughout 2012 was keeping the lid on about a dozen simmering scandals until after the election.
Job Two was scheduling rounds of golf.
California grown liberal. Leon has been a known to some.
I think you were thinking of “Zero Dark Forty Four”.
