Time to Clean House in the Pentagon...

I was more than thrilled to read that Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta (Clinton left-over) is leaving...but it shouldn't end there. It would seem that in addition to the CIA's need to weed out terrorist sympathizers --the Pentagon needs to do the same.

It seems that "unidentified U.S. military officials" have told the press (who then published it therefore telling Iran) that the United States doesn't have the capability to eradicate Iranian nuclear facilities... What is going on in this country?!

"...Top Pentagon officers have told the Bush administration that bombing Iranian nuclear facilities would probably fail to destroy that country's nuclear program, the New Yorker magazine reported on Sunday.

The senior commanders also warned that any attack launched if diplomacy fails to end the standoff over Iran's nuclear ambitions could have "serious economic, political, and military consequences for the United States," the article said, citing unidentified U.S. military officials." (source)

Isn't it enough that both Bin Laden's and Al-Zawahiri's new messages sound like they were written by a Kos kid? "Bush Lied, Bush is a liar, Bush is hiding behind his lies..."

Why would leaders want to anonymously sabotage their own country? I understand that politicians will do it for self-promotion...but why these anonymous leakers --what's the payoff?
