A RECENT REPORT THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA SIGNED A SECRET ORDER TO PROVIDE U-S SUPPORT TO SYRIAN REBELS...
HAS PROMPTED CALLS FOR A DEEPER F-B-I INVESTIGATION INTO THE NATIONAL SECURITY LEAKS.
MANY LAWMAKERS -- INCLUDING NEW YORK CONGRESSMAN PETER KING -- SAY THESE LEAKS APPEAR TO BE COMING DIRECTLY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.
KING says: "All the evidence points toward the White House and that compromises us because there were two other major allies involved with us in that, and there are tremendous hard feelings and a sense of betrayal from them
KING says: (on the leaks) "It definitely compromises our national defense and what it does is, it definitely damages our relationship with allies. The yemen operation there were two very, very close allies involved in there with us, they are actually furious that we compromised it. We have the situation in syria now, if we believe the reports, where turkey is now being compromised because they disclosed the location in turkey where the C.I.A. Command center is going to be according to reports. This damages us across the board and puts lives at risk, american lives at risk."
KING IS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE.
THERE WAS NO IMMEDIATE RESPONSE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO KING'S COMMENTS.
