When is a secret not a secret?

When government leaks sensitive national security information to the press, of course.

President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.

Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence "finding," broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad.

What is it that occurs in early November?  And who needs a little boost?

Oh, yeah.

  • When is a secret not a secret?

    1.  When it ISN’T information about Fast & Furious
    2.  When it ISN’T who Pres. Composite was meeting with
    3.  When it ISN’T how much $$$ cronies have kicked back
    4.  When it IS anything…regardless of who or what interest might be hurt…that Obama thinks he will benefit by leaking.

  • Wait, I thought the US wasn’t supposed to be meddling in another country’s business?  I guess it just depends on which political party the president belongs to.

    • Entirely.

  • This, of course, goes back to what the definition of “is” is
