New York Times reporter David Sanger on Sunday defended his reporting amid an intense debate and investigation of alleged national security leaks.

CNN’s “Reliable Sources” host Howard Kurtz said the information in Sanger’s book — that President Obama accelerated cyber attacks against Iran — seemed like information the administration wanted out.

“I have my doubts about that,” Sanger responded. “This was 18 months of reporting, long before the political season started.”

Sanger told Kurtz that “of course” he worked with administration officials in the process of reporting the book. “This is a book about the totality of the national security strategy of President Obama, what’s worked and what hasn’t. … How do you report a book about that without talking to people who were in the room?”
