SkinsHokieFan Posted July 28, 2010 Share Posted July 28, 2010 Daniel Ellsberg is asked to comment on a clip of press secretary Robert Gibbs complaining about the leaks: KING: Daniel, do you understand why Mr. Gibbs, representing the president, is so upset? ELLSBERG: Well, he's very upset in part because he's working for a president who has indicted more people now for leaks than all previous presidents put together. And two of those people -- Thomas Drake and Shamai Leibowitz -- have been indicted for acts that were undertaken under Bush, which [the] George W. Bush administration chose not to indict . So this is an administration that's more concerned about preventing transparency, I would say, than its predecessor which I'm very sorry to hear. As somebody who voted for Obama and expect to vote for him again, despite all this. http://www.americablog.com/2010/07/ellsberg-obama-has-indicted-more-people.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
