Same typical behavior from Leaky Leahy

Since the 1980s, the nickname of Senator Patrick Leahy (RAT - VT) has been "Leaky Leahy" because of his willingness to provide the press with juicy secrets to be used against Republican presidents. Examples? Not a problem.

First, when he was vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee in the 1980s threatened to sabotage classified Reagan administration strategies he didn't like. Second, in 1985 he disclosed classified information that one of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's telephone conversations had been intercepted. His leaking that information cost the life of at least one of the Egyptian operatives involved in that operation.

Third, the Washington Times reported in July 1987 that he leaked secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration to overthrow Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi.

Fourth, he allowed an NBC reporter to read a Senate Intelligence Committee's confidential draft report about the Iran-Contra scandal. It was only after this action and a six-month internal investigation that he was forced to step down from his seat on the committee. His leak has been described as one of the most serious breaches of secrecy in the committee's 28-year history. Thereafter, the Senate Intelligence Committee decided to restrict access to committee documents to a security-enhanced meeting room. It's no surprise that he traveled to Nicaragua and opposed our military support for the Contras in their fight against the Marxist Sandinistas.

He is also the man who wishes to grant habeas corpus rights for terrorists. How on Earth this RAT manages to maintain a security clearance after his actions is a mystery. The question now is how long is it before Leahy discloses classified information to his friends like Marla Ruzicka, Medea Benjamin, Global Exchange and Code Pink among just a few? It will only be a matter of time before he "inadvertantly" distributes information to Al Jazeera, CNN, PMSNBC, ABC News, cBS News, or Al Reuters.
