The recent string of high-level government leaks from cyberwar in Iran to drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan continues to drive headlines. Much of the discussion centers around what damage these leaks could cause to our national security.

Senator John McCain and other Republicans are accusing the White House of purposely leaking the information to portray President Obama as tough on terrorism. Even though President Obama denied these accusations in a press conference on Friday morning, public and political pressure continued brimming over.

On Friday evening, Attorney General Eric Holder announced two investigations into the leaks, one for the Stuxnet operation in Iran and one for the now well-known drone program. Takeaway Washington Correspondent Todd Zwillich discusses how these investigations could play out.
