White House claims they're not Perry's source, says they want to find 'real leakers'

The Obama White House denies being the source for the Foreign Policy article by former Arafat aide Mark Perry that claims that Israel has purchased airbases in Azerbaijan for an attack on Iran.
The sources said that the White House had "no interest" in leaks of this kind, adding that the administration would "gladly prosecute" the people behind it – if they knew who they were.

Israel, as well as pro-Israel elements in the United States, blamed the White House for the leak, but according to the official, the US is "crawling with thousands of intelligence and former intelligence officials," and the White House has no way of stopping them from offering information to the media as anonymous sources.

The official stressed that it was wrong to claim that there was a concentrated media effort within the administration against Israel.

Jerusalem and Washington, he added, are making "tremendous efforts" on Iran and are working more closely than ever. "Leaks on strategic matters are never good," he said.
Yeah, the White House wants to find the 'real leakers.' Just like OJ wants to find the 'real killer.' I don't buy it. Do you?

The White House has just confirmed that it is true by referring to the "real leakers". They aren't even good at this game of duplicity.
