    White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan

    Comment:

    The incompetent Obama White House throws another person under the bus. 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..."<

    So the question is, what in hell was Obama doing in Afghanistan ?

    Was it another photo op ?

    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.

    I would assume for at least two reasons: to meet with our men & women over there & Karzai to try and iron out the future security arrangement.

    Supposedly, Karzai refused to meet with President Obama.

    I heard that Obama didn't meet with Karzai. First I heard that Karzai refused to meet with Obama.

    A competent administration would have made sure that a meeting was going to take place before flying halfway around the world.

    And what would a community organizer know about security arrangements ?

    Probably why Karzai snubbed Obama.

    Repeat after me, Valerie Plame.

    Hey, remember when an Analyst, instead of an actual covert operative was outed in the Bush administration and everyone was convinced that it was the result of an evil plot?

    Ok, Valerie Plame.

    And what's your point ?

    No body in the Bush administration ****ed up, it was deliberately done.

    Valerie Plame was not a CIA station chief or a CIA officer or a CIA operative. She was a frickin secretary who no longer had any connections to the CIA.
