Sen. John McCain continued his blitz against the Obama administration Sunday, saying the president was responsible for the recent national security leaks–whether he knew about them or not.
“It’s obvious on its face that this information came from individuals who are in the administration,” McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The president may not have done it himself, but the president certainly is responsible as commander in chief.”
His comments came after the president himself forcefully dismissed the idea on Friday that the leaks came as a form of political strategy for the White House – a claim made by some Republicans on Capitol Hill, including McCain.
“The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive, it’s wrong, and people, I think, need to have a better sense of how I approach this office and how the people around me approach this office,” Obama said.
