-- chair of the house homeland security committee and back with this -- -- good morning.
What a real -- I'm fine thank you specifically you wanna know about this underwear bomb plot that was uncovered in and Yemen.
That stemmed out of al-Qaeda in the review peninsula.
And you believe in you stated that this one of the most successful operations average of one -- that what do you mean.
If bill go back to may be April may when we had this counter this by operation in Yemen.
With so much information was obtained.
That's the highest we -- got in penetrating our Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula at all of that.
Before the operation was completed it was leaked to the Associated Press.
And there's such a small universe of people who knew about it.
All to be able or we evidence points toward the White House.
And that compromised -- because there -- two other major allies involved with those in that.
There's tremendous hard feelings and sense of betrayal from them that after that we have the -- that that's what I was stories about the computer virus.
Be injected into Iranian nuclear program.
We had the details on the drone attacks and -- this week we see.
That come from Syria.
The leaking -- of and again -- Intelligence Committees are we Gephardt put this but reports the paper about the president's signing -- finding.
Authorizing action against Syria now where's all that never should have been -- secondly not only was that leaked over the most of the details of what that.
Fighting in -- how far the US -- go how well we couldn't go it also.

To quote this leaking of the Assyrian operation.
I don't know what you'll hear back from the FBI that you have pointed a finger directly at the White House.
And what you charges that fit the group we people -- who have access of information is not a wide circle.
I think the question is why is this happening.
Yeah -- the end I'm.
I'm I'm very careful what I say the reason I IE aim at the White House and this is.
That and you read the story to talk to our meetings in the National Security Council in the White House talk from meetings the Oval Office -- White House.
Yemen operation we discussed before was known only to a small group of people primarily in the White House nobody congress know anything about.
How the only I can think -- is this is an attempt to rehabilitate the president.
Going into an election -- to show these are tough guys.
Also going back a year ago when they after bin Laden was killed all the secrets -- will put out at that time so you listen president deserves credit for killing bin Laden.
But -- that time they went far beyond any I -- -- -- -- I think -- just to enhance his reputation has done in a responsible way.
Here's Donald Rumsfeld with Greta from last night listen -- key part of what he says it'll ask you about it right here this.
-- -- out of the White House.
Is a signal to other countries be very careful.
About cooperating with the United States of America because if you do.
You very likely will end up running the risk at least of compromising.
Relationship with the United States you're compromising intelligence information that you need to defend your people that last point about national defense.
Is he right.
Yes he is in fact I had the opportunity to be with secretary Rumsfeld has about six weeks ago.
We're discussing this very issue definitely compromise our national -- -- -- it does is it definitely damages our relationship and allies.
Yemen operation there -- two very very close allies involved in that with -- there actually furious.
That we compromised it.
Now we have the situation here if we believe the reports with Turkey is now being compromised.
Because they disclose the location in Turkey where the CIA -- -- going to be according.
Okay what's now this is this damages us across the board and it puts lives at risk American lives -- -- Peter King we'll see when you get an answer from the FBI thank you for your time today -- At a -- on the -- thank you.
