    From the Peace Corps to the Social Security Administration, the Obama administration wants to stop leaks.
    According to a Department of Defense Strategy memo obtained by McClatchy reporters, there's a new initiative called the Insider Threat Program. Launched not long after Private Bradley Manning shared classified documents with the website WikiLeaks, the program gives government agencies greater authority to investigate and punish potential leaks.
    To discuss this we're joined by Kel McClanahan, an attorney specializing in national security law and information law, along with Marisa Taylor, reporter for McClatchy who reported on the Insider Threat Program.
