Well this is really helpful. It’s the most helpful thing yet since the time Obama Inc. leaked Israel’s plans to strike Iran’s nuclear program via Azerbaijan. Or the time Leon “Benghazi What?” Panetta began telling reporters when Israel might attack Iran.
And the leaks just keep on leaking.
Routine or not, it was unthinkable for the U.S. Defense Department to publicize more than 1,000 pages of the most minute details of a system whose success rests, among other things, on being totally hidden from enemy eyes.This is a huge blow to Israeli defense, because the Arrow 3 is designed to seek and destroy Iranian Shihab 3 missiles and other long-range projectiles. It does this after being launched into space, where its interceptor breaks away and becomes a vehicle for targeting and crashing into oncoming missiles. Unlike Israel’s Iron Dome system, which serves as a protective shield against enemy missiles, the Arrow 3 hunts them down and blows them up.In February of this year, it was tested successfully from a launching pad in the center of Israel, taking off over the Mediterranean. But now that so many of its specifications have been made public, it is unlikely to become operational in time to stave off Iranian missiles equipped with nuclear warheads.
It’s almost like a guy with links to the Iranian government is now the Secretary of Defense.
Hagel has long-standing ties with the pro-Tehran lobby in the United States. Since 2002, he has appeared as a keynote speaker at fund-raisers and conferences for the American-Iranian Council, a group whose founder, Housang Amirahmadi, has boasted that he is “the Iranian lobby in the United States.”

Bee's note: See: U.S. publishes details of missile base Israel wanted kept secret - http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/06/03/192895/us-publishes-details-of-missile.html#.Ua4CNkAp-Sq
I believe the White House needs a good plumber to stop the "leaks" pouring out from its chambers, into the streets of Iran and other enemies of Israel's. Every time one would hope/think there shall not be another betrayal of trust, another "leak" appears, placing Israel's security under fire.
Interesting, that the trial of Bradley Manning begins this week, 3 years after his arrest in Iraq and charged in the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history.
According to the Obama administration, Manning "threatened valuable military and diplomatic sources and strained America's relations with other governments, but the specific amount of damage hasn't been publicly revealed and probably won't be during the trial."
Who will be held accountable for the "leaks" coming out of the White House? Why aren't these so-called "leaks" considered "aiding the enemy" and "straining the relations with Israel"?
The White House leaks demonstrate to America's allies that the United States administration under President Obama is an untrustworthy "friend".
The acts of Manning are considered treasonous. What are leaks from this administration considered, when such leaks undermine both America's and its ally, Israel's security? Will anyone ever be held responsible for such damaging information publicly displayed for the world to review in the comfort of their living rooms, with just one click of a button to one of the WH's government links?
Just another day, another scandal, from Barack HUSSEIN Obama's administration.
