WASHINGTON - The White House and a leading Republican senator accused each other of being "grossly irresponsible" on Wednesday in connection with a recent series of leaks of national security data.

White House spokesman Jay Carney denied allegations made by Senator John McCain a day earlier that the apparent leaks by administration officials must have been politically motivated to boost US President Barack Obama's stature ahead of his attempted re-election this fall.

McCain fired back with a heated statement repeating his suspicions, declaring "this is not a game" and "laws have apparently been broken." He called for prosecution of whoever is responsible for the leaks, which have included information about a US cyber warfare program aimed at thwarting Iran's nuclear program.
