Dear President Obama: When are you going to talk about Sen. Feinstein's irresponsible violation of security?

It wasn't that long ago that your party lost it's collective mind over the "outing" of Valerie Plame.

You remember, don't you?  Man, the left was HOWLING for scalps over the release of her already released identity.  Woo, doggies, but the left made enough hay out of that non-issue to feed the entirety of our dairy industry's cows for decades to come.

But NOW, the left is silent.  Cavernously silent.  They're making church mice look like headbangers in a mosh pit.  Not a sound.  Nothing... a "Black Hole" of silence, as it were.

So, we have the Plame Nonevent, and they lose their minds.

Then we have Senator Diane Feinstein, giving our classified, sensitive information that violated a boat load of laws and regulations concerning intelligence... and you've got nothing to say?

Where's your fellow leftists now, Mr. President?  Why are they so quiet?  More importantly, why are YOU so quiet?

Do you countenance this, yet another in the series of violations of our laws that you seem to have no trouble dealing with in your appointments?

Senator Feinstein broke our laws.  Seriously.  She's violated her trust as a United States Senator.

Why hasn't she been arrested?  Why haven't you publicly admonished her?

Why hasn't your clueless Attorney General, Eric "You're All Cowards" Holder, acted in this matter?

What would happen to me if *I* released classified information like SHE did?

We all know the answer to that: but I bet it wouldn't be the same outcome experienced by Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner.

Thank you SO much for all you've done for us, Mr. President.  We really, really, really appreciate it. 

Sen. Feinstein's surprise disclosure likely to complicate joint campaign against Taliban militants

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an airbase inside that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counterterrorism collaboration with the United States.

The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, marked the first time a U.S. official had publicly commented on where the Predator aircraft patrolling Pakistan take off and land.

At a hearing, Feinstein expressed surprise at Pakistani opposition to the ongoing campaign of Predator-launched CIA missile strikes against Al Qaeda targets along Pakistan's northwest border.

"As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base," she said of the planes.

The basing of the pilotless aircraft in Pakistan suggests a much deeper relationship with the United States on counterterrorism matters than has been publicly acknowledged. Such an arrangement would be at odds with protests lodged by officials in Islamabad and could inflame anti-American sentiment in the country.

The CIA declined to comment, but former U.S. intelligence officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information, confirmed that Feinstein's account was accurate.
