Posted on 02/16/2017 9:05:28 AM PST by detective
Former CIA analyst and retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer during a Wednesday appearance on Fox Business Network named several Obama administration officials he suspected were behind the leaks prompting former National Security Advisor Michael Flynns resignation.
Shaffer said the blame lay "squarely at the feet of" the former CIA director John Brennan, former director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper, and former deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes.
The Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday reported that Rhodes and others constructed a "behind-the-scenes effort" to "plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media."
This is in line with the theory that Flynn had to be forced out and replaced with more "reliable" Obama and Bush people who would maintain the status quo on Iran, Islamic terrorism, etc..

Hang them high! After a trial of course.
Now he can be a witness. I assume that he will still be on Trump’s speed dial.
If they did this and are guilty.
Try them and give them the choice of the rest of their lives in Gitmo Shores with their Islamic terrorists buds.
Or death by firing squad. They could ask for volunteers from former intel guys/gals, who honored their oath to America.
Most of us would pay our own round trip ticket to DC and bring our own bullets.
If Obama and $oreA$$ were involved, the above would apply to them.
The drunk who had Zero security background of any kind and owes his position mostly to being the brother of the head of CBS "news"
This is absolute treason for the intelligence community to decide that it stands in a supervisory capacity over the presidency.
The dream of Truman, JFK, and others was to bring the intelligence community under control.
We have now reached a point where it is not just occasional and secret. They are not in open rebellion and have decided they are a policy making branch of government.
It is time to completely dismantle a giant swath of the Intelligence Community and restore it to the military in its pre-WWII form.
That is that “They are in open rebellion”.
about time to announce a thorough investigation into who leaked- and expose the fact, IF it was those fellas, that these untrustworthy people were the head of obama’s ‘intelligence’ for all those years and who knows how much info they allowed to escape into cyberspace- compromising national security-
They need to make an example of the guys or gals who leaked. Just don’t leave it up to the Republicans in Congress, who will take years of useless hearings to get to no result. Trump needs to go balls to the wall to fry these people.
I would pay money to see Brennan brought to justice.
I fully believe that the leaks are coming from Obama. I’ll bet that Obama took a stack of hard drives with him when he left the White House. He’s using that data treasure trove to hurt The Donald.
while I have no doubt this is true, why do I think nothing will happen to any of these 3?
You saved me the keystrokes.
Seems likely. They are at right level of knowledge access and press access to do it.
Circumstantial evidence required access, knowledge, ability, reason ((purpose)
Cut the Gitmo mantra. Gitmo is like a 5-star hotel compared to a simple US prison.
Have you ever been to Gitmo?
I was in and out of Gitmo from Oct 1962 to Sep 1964 courtesy of the US Navy.
Thanks to the Castro boys, Fidel and Raúl Castro, the tension was all ways high on the base. Of course that was during and immediately after the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Castros were not happy that they didn’t get to help launch nukes into America.
I have talked to current/past sailors, who have served in or out of Gitmo, and most of them agreed with me:
They/we/I had rather be at sea than in Gitmo. The reality of being at sea in a Navy ship, for most of us is like being on a seagoing prison. You can’t go anywhere except on your ship unlike a Princess Cruise for fun and relaxing. Yet, we preferred to be at sea than docked at Gitmo or operating out of Gitmo.
Gitmo is a hot and miserable place with high humidity with hurricanes to break up the constant heat.
Our Marines, the protectors of US sailors around the world for decades run Gitmo Shores as tight or tighter than any prison in America.
So try these traitors, find them guilty and send them on a one way trip to Gitmo shores. A fitting terminal hell for those, who tried for 8 years to close Gitmo to protect their Islamic buddies in Gitmo.
Then, we can send them postcards showing great American places and tell them, “Enjoy Gitmo Shores, and we are glad you are there!”
