So all the Obama Administration did was take credit, out the program, and put operatives lives at risk. What a leader.

information obviously leaked by psycho racist Obama haters in Washington agencies. There have been many other instances of intentional Operation leaks to “make Obama fail” as Limbaugh put it.

Well done the USA, you have set an example of launching cyber warfare and lack of transparency. Of course the USA can do anything for threatening other’s security while always condemn China doing exactly the same thing. Nations are not born equal.

Yet another Conservative piece of fiction… the NY Times article of 6/1/12 makes it pretty clear that Obama neither took credit for Stuxnet nor “outed” it.

“Mr. Obama decided to accelerate the attacks — begun in the Bush administration and code-named Olympic Games — even after an element of the program accidentally became public in the summer of 2010″
