Obama is downplaying the importance of the leak of thousands of classified documents. But he won’t be able to laugh off the latest allegations. We have now learned that with quick action he and his White House Staff may have been able to limit the damage, but they were too incompetent to act.
The video interview below blows this scandal wide open.
When asked by Judge Andrew Napolitano of Fox News why he should not be held responsible for potential deaths caused by the leak, Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, answered that he contacted the White House about the leaks before they were released and asked them to review them.

They were too busy golfing, partying with Paul McCartney and spending the summer vacationing. In subsequent email conversations Assange’s people clarified that they sought this response through the New York Times.
This is the part of the puzzle which could explain why Obama and his supporters have been trying to downplay this leak as unimportant.
If someone in the Obama administration had pre knowledge of this devastating leak and they did nothing to help limit the potentially fatal consequences to our soldiers and many valiant Afghani informants, Obama has every reason to downplay the leak.
Someone in this administration has blood on their hands, and Congress must demand a full disclosure of who knew what and when. This scandal should not be covered up.
