Sometimes it seems the only people the Obama administration doesn’t spy on are themselves

The Obama administration is expected to open a criminal probe into the NSA leaks:

President Barack Obama’s administration is likely to open a criminal investigation into the leaking of highly classified documents that revealed the secret surveillance of Americans’ telephone and email traffic, U.S. officials said on Friday.

The law enforcement and security officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly, said the agencies that normally conduct such investigations, including the FBI and Justice Department, were expecting a probe into the leaks to a British and an American newspaper.

Based on how much trouble they seem to have locating alleged leakers in their midst, the Obama administration might want to put a moratorium on monitoring everybody else and focus on spying on themselves for a while.

Related story: Last week, President Obama claimed that “every member of Congress” had been briefed about NSA surveillance programs.

Just in case that wasn’t entirely true…

Update: The Guardian has identified their source. A 29 year old NSA contract employee?
