Romney raps security leaks, top Democrat cools criticism

Republican hopeful says White House bears the blame

Mitt Romney accused President Obama’s White House Tuesday of leaking classified national security secrets, citing a similar charge by the Democratic chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

But shortly after Romney delivered his speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Reno, the intelligence chair, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, backed off her earlier suggestion that someone on Obama’s staff was the source of the leak. And, she said, she regretted being used by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
