PoliticalNews.me - Jul 26,2012 - Rep. Peter King: President Obama Should Call For Independent Investigation Of Leaks
New York Congressman Peter King made the following statement on the recent leaks of sensitive national security information:
“David Axelrod said that no one is more committed to ferreting out national security leakers from the White House than President Obama. If that is true, then the President should join with congressional leaders in calling for a thorough and independent investigation of these security breaches. Every time sensitive national-security information leaks from the White House or any part of the government, our soldiers, intelligence operatives, and our citizens are placed in jeopardy. President Obama must take the lead in putting an end to this threat to our security. The White House’s exploitation of national security secrets for political gain must cease once and for all.”
The foundations of our nation’s strength are a love of liberty and a pioneering spirit of innovation and creativity. These values—inherited from our Founders and embodied by all who came to our shores seeking opportunity—have made the United States the most powerful nation in the history of the world. But today, under President Obama’s leadership, Washington is smothering these values at home and sapping our influence abroad. The federal government has grown too large. And President Obama has presided over one of the worst economies in modern history—millions of jobs have been lost, record numbers of Americans are in danger of losing their homes, and personal bankruptcies have skyrocketed. He has failed the American people.
Mitt Romney believes in America. He believes that liberty, opportunity, and free enterprise have led to prosperity and strength before and will do so again. America, however, must take decisive action to roll back the misguided policies of the last three years, empower our citizens, and restore the foundations of our nation’s strength.
