BOMBSHELL: Al-Qaeda Infiltrator was not CIA, Cover Blown for Election Year Politics
P.J. Tatler ^ | 5/15/2012 | Patrick Poole

Posted on 05/15/2012 9:36:45 AM PDT by wildbill

Just a week ago the establishment media was aflutter with news that a CIA double-agent had thwarted a new type of underwear bomb attack targeting U.S. flights in a plot devised by al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula.

But as the week progressed, a developing bombshell story got buried under President Obama’s gay marriage announcement. Not only is the supposed CIA asset not a CIA asset at all, but the entire operation was exposed prematurely and the double-agent’s life was immediately threatened by an intelligence leak that very well may have come out of the White House for political gain.

As the story broke, the establishment media was more than happy to attribute the intelligence coup to the CIA and the Obama administration, describing the mole as a “CIA informant.”

It turns out that wasn’t true. The double-agent hadn’t been recruited and placed by the CIA, but by British intelligence, who also managed the operation. In fact, the Americans had only recently been made aware of the joint British-Saudi effort.

Loose lips sink ships. If the leak leads to the WH and it isn't even true as leaked, this is an unbelievable betrayal of the intelligence asset of an ally for political gain.

If the media actually reported accurately all the incompetent and disgustingly self-serving political crap that this President and this administration have done and continue to do, Obama would have a hard time winning Illinois let alone reelection. They never vetted him, have ignored a ton of disturbing inconsistencies and lies, and they are doing everything they can to prop this guy up. They are despicable.

Given the general flow of events, I think that to ascribe this to simple political gain is naive. I think we need to face up to the growing realization that the enemy of our country is controlling the Whitehouse and the administration. Our economy is on its knees, our energy sector has been crippled, our military emasculated, our own populace herded like sheep and treated like criminals by government agents, and now we are surprised that Obama and his agents have blown this critical international intelligence operation? The ENEMY IS IN THE WHITEHOUSE—this betrayal goes far beyond simple political gain. Obama is nothing but a tool.

I watched the British tv series MI-5. The MI-5 agents were constantly at odds with the CIA. References were made about Obama when he was first elected that perhaps he would bring a new direction to the CIA. The expectations didn’t last long as the writers on the program realized what an idiot Obama was. I am beginning to think that the British were way ahead of the game in their negative opinion of Obama and HIS CIA.

I wonder if Obama is more than just "self-serving".

This "leak", along with so many other seemingly stupid "blunders" that undermine our national security make me wonder very seriously if Obama and his administration are not actually "serving" a master--or masters--who are hell-bent on pursuing their own agneda: an agenda which stands in DIRECT opposition to that which our founding fathers so faithfully and forcefully defended, because they truly believed in the "truths" they declared to be "self-evident".

If what PJMedia is reporting is true, it tells me that Obama has not only put in jeopardy the life of the British informant, but also the "health and welfare" of our country's national security, and even our republican (small "r") system of government.

May God have mercy on us all!

Didn't British intelligence stop communication with the clintoon clowns? Imagine gw restored the confidence. zer0 was cut off early on, one has to believe. zer0’s whitehut retaliation? Probably, since zer0 is not trustworthy, and would sell himself and the country to create ruin, as did clintoon.

It all boils down to the fact that Obama lacks honor.
He would step on anyone and betray anyone to gain even the smallest attention to himself.

Dear Allies,

We greatly appreciate the risks you take to save our lives. Please don’t tell your plans anymore to the president of the USA or any of his associates. They are venal stupid incompetent selfish narcissists or worse - some are enemies of you and our shared values.

God Save and Bless you.
Signed,
a grateful American

This subhuman POS is either a deliberate enemy agent or the most blindingly ignorant incompetent in the intelligence area of all of our presidents, including the clueless, hapless Jimmy Carter. If, speaking charitably, this absolute ignoramus knew a wee bit of WWII history, he’d know that one of the biggest reasons we and the Brits won was was that both of us had cracked the vital German and Japanese codes, enabling us to devastate them. Those secrets were so vital that FDR (no hero of mine) and Churchill did everything possible to keep them from being discovered. The Illegal’s thusfar successful efforts to keep his vital records concealed show he seems to well know how vital secrecy can be. Hence, the most logical explanation for this is deliberate treason.

Obama is a Traitor! This is exactly why we must INSIST on a Natural Born Citizen (Born in the United States (preferably Continental U.S., to be certain) by TWO citizen parents).

He's absolutely a Manchurian Candidate. Groomed by his Communist anti American family and mentors. Sure, early on he was just a stooge, but he has been brainwashed into believing his Marxist, Muslim, teachings.

Marxists and Muslims working together to destroy America. Who would be a better leader (term used loosely as he is still just a brainwashed STOOGE)?

This is NO JOKE! Just like there REALLY WERE Communists in the White House and State Department during the McCarthy era. McCarty WAS RIGHT! http://voices.yahoo.com/joe-mccarthy-red-scare-2049310.html

It happened before and is happening NOW! Our very way of life is in deep jeopardy.

The MSM is the biggest problem. We MUST force the media to tell the truth. We must TAKE OVER the media, so the truth can set us free.

The MI-5 agents were constantly at odds with the CIA.

The biggest threat seemed to come from political influence controlling MI-6 who were in cahoots with the CIA.

It's a fantastic series!

British Intelligence knows who they made this info available to in the US admin. Questions now are: will our intelligence agencies investigate the trail from there and let British intelligence know the results, will we ever learn the results, will British intelligence let us know who the traitor in our midst is?

Yours and other replies here are right on the mark...

Basically, America is like a 747 with a hijack in progress. The hijackers did not use guns, or even box knives - they used “sweet talk” to get the crew/passengers to just hand them the keys to the normally hardened-to-access cockpit. The pilot/co-pilot/navigator were sitting in the passenger seats, while the hijackers had TOTAL freedom in the cockpit (for two years). Now, with some apparent difficulty in operating this 747, they’ve allowed one crew member back into the cockpit to help steer...

So, messages to America’s traditional friends in the world: Transponder code 7500 to you. Hopefully, we can wrest control back from our hijackers... before they completely do us in.

IIRC, the Polish mathematicians were the first to crack the ENIGMA cipher. Both the US and the UK then applied a “brute force” attack on both the Japanese and Germans. I read that Churchill actually sacrificed the city of Coventry rather than let the Luftwaffe know that British Intelligence knew of their planned raid, which they learned of from ENIGMA decrypts.

The difficulty with certain political zealots - and there seem to be far more of this type on the left than the right - is that political truth trumps all other truths, political decisions trump all other decisions. Certain Soviet commissars were convinced they could order the grain to grow, that sort of thing.

In this business it means that amateurs who have every constitutional right to watch have demanded, and been given, the wheel, and the excuse that if people are harmed as a consequence it's all in pursuit of a Greater Good or a Higher Truth, those happy vacuities having a tight correspondence with the party in question's hold on power. Is that worth their dying for? Of course not, but it is worth somebody else dying for it.

You know...maybe Obama wasn’t all that happy that the bomber was caught and decided to try to cut the chain of info (which must have happened) and score political points off it meanwhile. But maybe Obama thinks that with another attack he can say “don’t change horses in the middle of the stream” and get re-elected that way. Remember Bill Clinton wishing 911 had happened on his watch so Clinton could have reaped the glory from pulling us together?

Impossible for me to imagine that American lives matter more to Obama than his own election.
