Did Rep. Michele Bachmann Leak Classified Intelligence?

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Last night’s Republican debate — the ninth so far, was by any measure a snooze fest of regurgitated idiocy. However, there was one exception to this assessment and it came courtesy of Rep. Michele Bachmann. The Minnesota congresswoman appeared to leak classified intelligence. Bachmann serves on the House Intelligence Committee.

National Journal reports:

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann serves on the House Intelligence Committee, so her comments on Pakistan’s nuclear program represent either a news-making leak of previously unknown classified information or another in her recent series of seemingly-random, and highly inaccurate, public comments.  During the CNN debate, Bachmann said that 15 Pakistani nuclear sites were vulnerable to jihadist attacks, and that six of the sites had previously come under some form of Islamist attack.  U.S. intelligence and military officials believe that Pakistan has 15 nuclear sites, but no U.S. official has publicly said that all of the sites were vulnerable to militant attack or confirmed that any of them had previously come under any form of jihadist attack.

    Don’t they take some sort of oath when sworn in? Bachmann violated this oath by running her mouth and should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee.

    She’s dangerous.

  2. Garrett M. Ockun says:

    Bachmann won’t be president. She’s too crazy. But she could do porn. I think a lot of guys would like to bang her.

  3. Rachel says:

    It was reported Michelle Bachmann suffers from epic, migraine headaches so debilitating that she is under the care of several doctors, takes handfuls of narcotics and is often locked up in a dark, quiet room away from people. My guess is, it is during these times that her mouth and brain are working in unison and could leak such classified intelligence. The woman isn’t suited to be president.

  4. Brigadoon says:

    I agree with Rachel. Bachmann was having a codeine moment.

    Too many debates. Who watches this crap?

  6. The Real Adam says:

    Bachmann gets her news and information from God. Really.

    She says he speaks to her in her living room when her sissy-face husband and the adopted kids are upstairs, tucked in for the night and she’s all alone downstairs. Maybe it was God who told her this about the Pak’s nuclear facilities and not House Intelligence Committee reports. I was hoping she might discuss unicorns and fairies too but she must be saving something for the next debate.

    Meanwhile Bachmann appeared on the Jimmy Fallon show:

    As the Minnesota Congresswoman walked out to greet Fallon on stage, the show’s band, The Roots, played a song by Fishbone called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.”

    Bachmann, while waving and smiling as she walked out Monday night, appeared unaware of the song or its lyrics, some of which include the words, “I really thought our love was much too strong / But that little slut just proved us wrong.”

    It appears the song choice was intentional. Prior to Bachmann’s arrival on stage, the band’s drummer, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, tweeted during the show: “Aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title.”

    Fallon issued an apology the next day.

    As for her giving out classified info– Anyone even marginally paying attention knows Pakistan is a vulnerable powderkeg & the entire region is as unstable as it gets.

    Pakistani nukes vulnerable to militant or jihadist attack — naive Americans probably don’t even think one of the biggest threats are U.S. Drone planes flying around bombing people & things in Pakistan.
    Unmanned bomber planes in a country with 15 nuclear sites. What could possibly go wrong?

    Loose lips sink Crazy Eyes.

  9. Pechanga says:

    Michelle Bachmann’s defenders are roaming the internet claiming the Pakistan intel was published in Atlantic Monthly. Is this true?

    Listen, I loathe the woman but if she is guilty of leaking classified intelligence, she should be stripped of her position on the House Intelligence Committee. If not then, she was repeating something the American people could read in a magazine.

  10. Marcus Ybanez says:

    Musharraf happily took U.S. foreign aide and gave harbor to Osama bin Laden.

    When he (Musharraf) was challenged, he had his chief rival promptly assassinated. The Pakistan military supports the Taliban. All of this went on under George W. Bush’s nose. Yet, Bush and Cheney repeatedly referred to Musharraf as America’s “partner in the war on terrorism.”

    With friends like this, who needs enemies?

    ROFL! Priceless!

    She’s pretty low on intelligence ….can’t afford a big leak
