Disclosure of the bomb plot coincided with the one-year anniversary of a terrorist bomb attack on London subways and a bus that killed 52 and injured about 700. Authorities said they hadn’t intended to release details about the plot this early and that whoever leaked the information had compromised the FBI’s relationship with some foreign intelligence services.
The person who leaked the details is “clearly someone who doesn’t understand the fragility of international relations,” Mershon said. `We’ve had a number of uncomfortable questions and some upsetment with these foreign intelligence services that had been working with us on a daily basis.”
Can you say Orange alert? Sinking polls? Campaign season? Compromise national security? No problem!
Here you have an ongoing investigation about a serious plot and it gets leaked. Why? Because it reinforces this Administration’s “strong on terrorism” narrative. Of course, when the evil, liberal, New York Times publishes a story about a banking program that is not a secret in any conceivable way it’s treason.
