    White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan

    >" The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops.

    The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list that did not include the individual, who had been identified on the initial release as the “Chief of Station” in Kabul, a designation used by the CIA for its highest-ranking spy in a country.

    The disclosure marked a rare instance in which a CIA officer working overseas had his cover — the secrecy meant to protect his actual identity — pierced by his own government..."<

    Valerie Plame was outed intentionally. This guy was outed accidentally. It's a colossal ****-up to be sure but let's not ignore the double standard.

    At this point it seems the federal government has decided "you know what, **** it, let's just leak **** ourself!"

    Where are the Obama supporters at on this one? Those same people were screaming bloody murder over Valerie Plame and yet there is silence on this? This is a colossal **** up by an administration that has proven itself on numerous occasions to be completely incompetent and now they have put even more American lives at risk.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    This was an accident... Valerie Plame was deliberate. Big difference.

    It is like when GOP congressmen release top secret information "by mistake"...

    Valerie Plame was neither a CIA operative let alone a station chief. Sorry petey, but all the excuses you can pull out of a hat won't excuse this administration's continual lack of conpetence.

    The CIA said she was, end of story. Your GOP talking points to find an excuse for Darth Vader and his minions are pathetic.

    Not to mention what Maggie already pointed out...Where's the accountability? Who will get fired for this? Anyone?

    The only difference that matters is that Valerie Plame was a former field agent in the DC bureaucracy.....the Section Chief in Afghanistan was in field, a very hostile field at that!
