"Romney Accuses Obama of Classified Leaks for Political Gain"
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney charged Tuesday that President Barack Obama sought political gain by leaking classified details of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
Romney made the accusation during an address to the Veterans of Foreign Wars national onvention on the eve of his visit to key U.S. allies Britain, Israel and Poland. Obama addressed the VFW on Monday as both candidates shift, if briefly, from economic issues that have been the focus of the campaign to military affairs and foreign policy.
The presumptive GOP presidential candidate seized on a comment Monday from Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee:
"I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks," the senator told a World Affairs Council forum.
The California lawmaker said she was certain that Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn't disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House. Romney called the alleged leak on bin Laden "contemptible," saying such action betrayed the national interest and compromised U.S. troops. He demanded an investigation.
The White House did not immediately respond to the accusations. Obama has rejected the notion that his administration has leaked classified information, earlier calling such allegations "offensive."

Romney accuses Hussein Obama of Leaking Classified Information;
Mitt Romney made a bold effort today when he accused a sitting president of leaking classified information concerning the killing of Osama bin Laden for political gain.
Do I believe that a sitting president would be capable of leaking information that would endanger American troops. Especially the one who carried out the raid on Bin Laden. If it were any other president I would say no way. However Barack Obama is no ordinary president. He has been the most secretive president to ever occupy the white house, refusing to release information that most all presidents have released before. What is he hiding?
That said yes, I believe that Obama did release the information to awaiting reporters. I am not alone. I first became aware of the accusations when blogger Ann Barhardt first broke the story. I read the post put up by Ms Barnhardt. At first I found it extremely hard to believe that any president would leak information endangering our very own troops, mush less Seal Team 6 members.
Just the very thought made me sick to my stomach. I am going to provide you with the link to the "Execution of Seal Team 6"by Ann Barnhardt, and you draw your own conclusions. As I first said, I found the story to be incredible..."Now I do not know if it is that incredible, based on who is now making the allegations.
Now months later we have a presidential candidate making the same assertion. What makes it even more intriguing , Democrat Diane Feinstein Ca. is also making the same allegations. Remember Feinstein is a democrat, she is on the same team as Obama. That carries weight my friend.
There is enough smoke in the air for congress to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations. This allegation needs to be investigated, and let the chips fall where they may. This is not a time for congress to sit on their hands and do nothing.
