Members of a "citizens grand jury” will meet next week in Ocala, Fla., to look at allegations that the “loose lips” of the Obama administration led to the deaths of dozens of members of the U.S. military and the imprisonment of a Pakistan physician who helped locate Osama bin Laden – all to “bolster” the “political agendas” of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
It quotes Kurt Tidd, vice admiral in the U.S. Navy, who said in a sworn Freedom of Information Act statement denying access to military information, “Although it is known that [Department of Defense] conducts military and intelligence operations in foreign nations, publicly disclosing a particular military or intelligence activity could cause the foreign government to respond in ways that would damage U.S. national interests.”
The indictment and supporting materials can be found at www.citizensgrandjury.com. The website also contains discussions of the legal basis for Citizens' Grand Juries, which have been held to be as constitutional as the grand jury, according to a Supreme Court decision United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 (1992), is not subject to the executive, legislative or judicial branches of government but instead belongs to the citizens of the United States
While the Navy SEALS were successful, their identities were revealed only when Biden “was at a dinner at Washington’s Ritz Carlton Hotel and he said, ‘Let me briefly acknowledge tonight’s distinguished honorees. Admiral James Stavridis is a, is the real deal. He can tell you more about and understands the incredible, the phenomenal, the just almost unbelievable capacity of his Navy SEALs and what they did last Sunday… Folks, I’d be remiss also if I didn’t say an extra word about the incredible events, extraordinary events of this past Sunday. As vice president of the United States, as an American, I was in absolute awe of the capacity and dedication of the entire team, both the intelligence community, the CIA, the SEALs. It just was extraordinary.’”
Also, “As a direct result of this leak, Shakil Alfridi, a Pakistani doctor who aided the Central Intelligence Agency in tracking down Osama bin Laden, was arrested and sentenced to 33 years in jail when the Pakistani authorities discovered Afridi’s involvement with the CIA after an internal government probe.
“These leaks on national security coming from the White House undermine the men and women who put risks on their lives for us. This is not helpful. I suppose it could have served some short-term political gain, could have … told some nice story,” said U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., now the GOP nominee for vice president.

Obama has been cracking down hard on whistle blowers. More so than every US President combined.
Loose lips won't sink Obama. There are many people employed to keep secrets, even if it requires killing you.
For example.....you still don't know the real reason America lost the mega Billion dollar B2 bomber. You never will.
A new group of former special forces soldiers and CIA officers has produced a video that accuses Barack Obama of revealing sensitive intelligence information for cheap political gain.
