Gates Vows to Fire Leakers « The Washington Independent
“I think a lot of different places are leaking. I’m confident that the Department of Defense is one of them.To have details or options that are being considered out there in the middle of the president’s deliberative process I think does not serve the country and it does not serve our military.’’
Mr. Gates then added a threat. “And frankly if I found out with high confidence anybody who was leaking in the Department of Defense, who that was, that would probably be a career-ender,’’ he said.
Noah Shachtman sums this up very well with an acronym I’m told I’m not allowed to use on this blog. I wonder if we’ll ever find out who leaked Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s Afghanistan assessment to Bob Woodward now!
