Obama Burns Over Leaks on Afghanistan

Wednesday, 18 Nov 2009 08:48 AM

President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he was furious over leaks from within his administration over deliberations on Afghanistan war strategy and considered them a firing offense.

Obama told CBS News in an interview that the strategy review involved life-and-death decisions.

"For people to be releasing information during the course of deliberations, where we haven't made final decisions yet, I think is not appropriate," he said in Beijing during a nine-day trip to Asia.

Asked whether he was as angry about the matter as Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Obama replied: "I think I'm probably angrier."

Asked whether he thought the leaks were a "firing offense," he said: "Absolutely."
