Skip to comments.Obama pardons [Ret. Gen.] James Cartwright in leak case
Posted on 01/17/2017 2:21:41 PM PST by GIdget2004
President Obama on Tuesday pardoned retired Gen. James Cartwright, the former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff accused of lying to the FBI about his conversations with reporters regarding U.S. efforts to cripple Iran's nuclear program.
Cartwright pleaded guilty in October to one felony count of making false statements during the FBI's investigation into leaks about the government's role in a highly classified operation known as Operation Olympic Games.
The clandestine effort -- untaken with Israel -- deployed a computer virus known as Stuxnet that destroyed Iranian centrifuges.
New York Times journalist David Sanger exposed the operation in 2012, sparking the leak investigation that lead to Cartwright.

Well, Obama did at least one good pardon.
None for Petraeus?

It seems the Left can... find the leaks when it’s expedient, fabricate the leaks when it’s expedient, and shirk the leaks when it’s expedient.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
What is good about a US general excganging emails with a NY TIMES reporter/traitor who worked to undermine the US and Israel and to promote the interests of Iran?
And communist terrorist friend of Obama, Bill Ayers (and his wife Bernadine Dohrn) still walk the streets as a free man/woman, formerly well paid professor/teacher, and America haters who leftists in the education/criminal justice system think are just peachy-keen people.
What is wrong with this picture?
Only three days till sanity and loyalty to America are back.
Somebody count the White House silver NOW before Michele leaves. She could hold a whole table setting for 12 under her dress and nobody would notice (and that might include the plates, too).
No but commuted Chelsea Manning.....
There are quite a few good enlisted and staff NCOs, both soldiers and Marines, rotting away in Leavenworth who could use a pardon.
Unless they are blacks or transvestites they can forget it.
This and Manning’s commutations for leaking info leads me to believe this is just prep work for Hillary.
Well, that explains the pardon...
He's laying the foundation for his pardon of Hitlery
Washington Post headline connects Hillary to Cartright.
“Cartright Pays for Hillary Sins” or something similar.
Pay to read source, however.
Anyone going to guess when the big Cahuna gets pardoned?
How about Friday morning 11:00?
Right when Obama leaves for the inauguration
untaken with Israel
Right you are.
I hope Trump knows about them.
