ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the need to tackle the information leaks in the U.S. government. Officials talking to the media must be accountable to their seniors. The problem of leaks has to do with political discipline and with the process of policy formation. It should be made clear that anyone causing serious political damage will be fired. An Administration is a political enterprise. It may indeed possess high and worthy goals, but it will not achieve them unless it remains politically effective. Every member of it, particularly at the highest levels, should thoroughly understand that. The article also presents examples of New Security Advisor William Clark's assertion in England on Ireland which was a discomfort to both the governments.
