CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER TO JUAN WILLIAMS:
You think that the administration is withholding information that could serve them? This is an administration that when they did the raid on bin Laden, SEAL Team Six, and they had a ton of information — a lot of that should never have been released, which served them well — they released it almost immediately in a scandalously open way because it exposed a lot of methods and a lot of our people.
This is not an administration which has shown itself to be a keeper of secrets that would actually help it.
And the drone attacks, and all of this. It leaks whenever.
And here we know that they know stuff. What happened in the nine hours when they had real-time information of what was happening? Where was the president? Why wasn’t he directing actions? Who were the ones who countermanded any assistance? Where was the president when that happened?
All that, the president knows. And it won’t serve him and that’s why he’s not saying it, he’ll wait until after the election or after he’s forced, otherwise you will not hear it. This is not an administration which is loathe to release stuff, even if it will hurt our national security, which will help them.
