For Those... Down In The Drone Dumps...

Check THIS out: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022325373

It appears... that it was the White House itself that leaked the Drone White Paper...

Why is this a big deal ???

Because it could be that there was a major rift inside the Administration over the legality/morality of this secret policy.

AND... they wanted to hash it out during the Brennan conformation hearings... in public.

Who was on one side or the other, I have no clue... but...

I'd find it hard to believe that it would have gotten out there without Obama's final approval.

STILL DO NOT LIKE THE POLICY... AT ALL...

But would love your thoughts on the palace intrigue.

1. Would not be the first time.

That factions air their disagreements during hearings.

2. Whoever leaked it is brave, and will go to prison

The White House has a clear policy on leaks.
