The Leaking of Secrets is at the discretion of the President. He can instruct something to be made secret and he can release it. In the case of the leaks of the Drone attacks or the Bin Laden Killing or the Iranian Computer Virus, there was no advantage for him to share these secrets. The Republicans have fought against any credit that might accrue to him for these heroic acts. Cheney held secret meetings with the oil Industry and made plans and strategies that benefitted them. He refused to tell who attended or what was discussed. It made it's way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and they agreed that it was Cheney's call. It came out that Haliburton and Enron were among the attendees. His associate Scooter Libby, spilled secrets about the Valerie Plame CIA involvement, and was tried and convicted. Bush Commuted his sentence before he served a day. The Conservatives will try to make hay out of this leak BS for the next six months.
