Sarah Palin Says Latest WikiLeaks Barack Obama’s Fault
How is it possible that one person managed to get their hands on so much classified material? Also, how is it that WikoLeaks would be allowed to release classified documents not once, but twice and now threatening to unload incriminating bank docs. Sarah Palin points the blame at President Barack Hussein Obama.
“The latest round of classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco,” Ms. Palin wrote on her Facebook page Monday.
Ms. Palin calls WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange “an anti-American operative with blood on his hands.” The WikiLeaks website released more than 250,000 State Department cables that have shed rare light on diplomatic back channels.
From Sarah Palin’s FACEBOOK comes the following criticism of Obama and his handling/mishandling of the WikiLeaks fiasco. In a word … incompetence. Palin also criticized the White House for a “lack of urgency” in preventing future leaks. How many times is it going to take where WikiLeaks threatens to publish classified US docs?
We all applaud the successful thwarting of the Christmas-Tree Bomber and hope our government continues to do all it can to keep us safe. However, the latest round of publications of leaked classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.
First and foremost, what steps were taken to stop Wikileaks director Julian Assange from distributing this highly sensitive classified material especially after he had already published material not once but twice in the previous months? Assange is not a “journalist,” any more than the “editor” of al Qaeda’s new English-language magazine Inspire is a “journalist.” He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?
What if any diplomatic pressure was brought to bear on NATO, EU, and other allies to disrupt Wikileaks’ technical infrastructure? Did we use all the cyber tools at our disposal to permanently dismantle Wikileaks? Were individuals working for Wikileaks on these document leaks investigated? Shouldn’t they at least have had their financial assets frozen just as we do to individuals who provide material support for terrorist organizations?
More reported at the Gateway Pundit from Sarah’s Facebook page.
Most importantly, serious questions must also be asked of the U.S. intelligence system. How was it possible that a 22-year-old Private First Class could get unrestricted access to so much highly sensitive information? And how was it possible that he could copy and distribute these files without anyone noticing that security was compromised?
The White House has now issued orders to federal departments and agencies asking them to take immediate steps to ensure that no more leaks like this happen again. It’s of course important that we do all we can to prevent similar massive document leaks in the future. But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July? What explains this strange lack of urgency on their part?
We are at war. American soldiers are in Afghanistan fighting to protect our freedoms. They are serious about keeping America safe. It would be great if they could count on their government being equally serious about that vital task.

You can use 1,000 locks to secure your front door, but if you forget to close the back door …..
What I mean is that it should have been technically impossible to burn data on DVD or write it to an USB stick.
Consistently spot-on, Sarah Palin redirects the focus towards
an inept President. What is the job of the Commander in Chief?
Does Obowma have a clue?
Obama does hold the title of CIC – not that he knows the first thing about it.
“But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July?”
All of the information released was all stolen at the same time. I agree that more serious preventative measures were warranted long before now but they would not have stopped the latest release.
Data is data so the data can not limit where it is copied to.
So you would have to limit the capabilities of the computer that the data is accessed from, but in a way that still lets the person do their job.
This will fix it LOL!
I wonder who was behind that?
Denial of service attacks are simple. You just bombard the server in question until it using all of resources servicing your (fake) requests and it no longer has the resources to respond to the legitimate users.
However once the DOS is going, you can normally terminate it by blocking traffic from the offending server, and your ISP is obligated to shut off your service if you are taking part in such an attack.
Therefore a prolonged DOS implies a wider organization and not some teenagers with too much extra time.
Would love to blame it squarely on Obama, but unfortunately it goes back to whom ever allows a low level disgruntled military member access to these types of documents and the allowance of copying the material. Ever heard of having computers storing classified material without CD burners and that won’t accept sticks?
The US military has over and over compromised classified material from allowing it on laptops that are then stolen or lost.
WikiLeaks founder should be put on trial for treason. and YES, that should have happened after the first release.
I didn’t think the wikilinks person was a us citizen?
