Skip to comments.Don't tell anyone, but that al Qaeda mole op had zero to do with the Obama administration

Here's a disturbing update to last week's amazing story about the U.S. mole who infiltrated al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and thwarted an airliner attack with a more sophisticated underwear bomb.
Someone in Washington whose boss stood to gain from an election year story about alert intelligence operatives successfully protecting American voters at great personal risk leaked the heroic story to the Associated Press. The AP held the story until Obama administration sources said the CIA operative was safe.
But, it turns out, the mole was not a CIA operative. The Obama administration had nothing to do with the operation and, in fact, didn't even know about it until recently. Somehow such details got lost in all the excited espionage news coverage about the bomb that didn't go off.
The sting was, in reality, an operation by Britain's MI6 intelligence service (see photo above of its unassuming headquarters tucked away in an obscure corner of London). It used a Yemeni native with dual British and Saudi citizenship with the cooperation of Saudi Arabia's intelligence service.
And the folks overseas who actually conceived and executed the risky work are none too happy about their loose-lipped American cousins trying to bolster someone's domestic political standing by leaking the story prematurely, destroying the agent's cover and future usefulness. And possibly betraying that agent's contacts within Yemen.
Do you think this kind of victory lap-itis might come up in the presidential campaign?

Our older brother looking out for us.
No, it won’t come up in the campaign because the stupid ass media thinks Mitt Romney’s college years of “ bullying” is more important!
Didn’t I once hear that it’s a no no to out undercover operatives?
Brits didn’t tell the Muslim Bisexual about their asset cuz they don’t trust him. He took credit for it cuz it’s an iffy election year for him, and it would make him look “decisive”.
The Brits only let on when they HAD TO, as the airliner was about to go 2 the USA.
When Obama made the disclosures in fact this Brit asset was still in place and almost got KILLED for it.
The Brits wanted to still USE this precious asset, and Obama blew his cover.
Whoever leaked must be found and made an example of. The finding will not be difficult, start with the journalist and follow the story back. If the journalist refuses to cooperate make them rue the day they thought of becoming a journalist. With no follow-up on this we will know that the Marxist President will not suffer a fellow traveler to be harmed in the pursuit of their true agenda.
Non-jurnolists could follow up on this, using masks grab the junolist and waterboard them, that should give you the source of the leak. Then publish on the net.
For some odd reason the name Plame comes to mind. Why do I doubt the MSM won't bring that up?
Because she was willing to sell herself to make George Bush look bad. The media has done the same thing. Birds of a feather....
Bump since it’s in the news again.
