    Well the station chief will lose his job, to be replaced by an unknown.

    Sure hope Air Force One wasn't burning up Obama's green PC fuel at $150. per gallon just to have some selfies taken half way around the world.



    Obama is the Commander-In-Chief of the USA's military until January, 2017.

    He was visiting some of his troops.

    I don't have a problem with the CIC visiting the troops on Memorial Day. All CICs have done it.

    It's just the boneheaded blundering that this Administration has become known for that is the problem. Like Democrats in tight races all over the country, the Military should start kindly asking the President to stay away.

    This isn't the first time that the Obama White House has outed out someone, they outed out a British intelligence informant for political gain back in 2012. Not to mention >"The identities of at least three CIA station chiefs in Pakistan have been exposed in recent years. In one case, a CIA officer became a target of death threats after his cover was blown, forcing the agency to rush him out of the country."<

    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..."<

    Has anyone on this forum ever heard of Valerie Plame?

    I guarantee you that G.W. Bush, Scooter Libby and a few other people from the Bush mis-administration are very familiar with that person.

    Yep, and I remember the liberal outrage and Plame wasn't even in a war zone. Where is that same liberal outrage now?

    Right, but I guess that any excuse is better than no excuse at all, eh?
