Why can't we know the name of the "senior U.S. official" who 'told' Fox News. If he's all that senior i suspect we may have heard of him? Is his identity a matter of national security? .. ridiculous.
"He" probably doesnt want to be known within the government as the guy who runs to the news agencies and gives them information such as this before the president himself can decide how he wants to approach this regarding the media...
You can't seriously sit there and tell me that you can't see any reason for someone to want to remain anonymous...
... Then " He " should keep his mouth shut?
Of course i can 'see' why some would want to, need to, or should, remain anonymous. I'm just really tired of the multitude of .. "official", "un-named", "white house", pentagon, etc. etc. etc. "SOURCES" that are "quoted" in THE "news" . I don't trust an endless stream of "Information" that no one is accountable for and therefore cannot be VERIFIED.
