Keeping Secrets


According to the AP, CIA Director Leon Panetta terminated a very serious covert
program that had been kept secret from Congress for 8 years. A covert program that had never been activated.

Now, why would the CIA want to keep something secret from Congress?
Well, duh.
Because of those 535 self-important blabbermouths.

Witness the current revelation by Rep. Jan Schakowsky, chairwoman of the Intelligence Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, who apparently managed to wait long enough for the AP to arrive before blabbing, and is now pushing for an immediate committee investigation of the (formerly) classified program.
Democrats revealed that CIA Director Leon Panetta had informed members of the House Intelligence Committee on June 24 that the spy agency had been withholding important information about a secret intelligence program begun after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Panetta had learned of the program only the day before informing the lawmakers, according to a U.S. intelligence official. The official spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because he was not authorized to discuss the program publicly.
Schakowsky charged that the CIA's lying was systematic and inexcusable, and that she thinks Panetta is 'changing the CIA for the better'.
"Many times I felt it was an annoyance to them to have to come to us and answer our questions," she said. "There was an impatience and a contempt for the Congress."
Ms Schakowsky knows all about contempt. Ask her about the Tea Parties .

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.


Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.



And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
