Daily Beast Exclusive: White House Official Fired for Tweeting Under Fake Name
The Daily Beast ^ | Tuesday, October 22, 2013 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 10/22/2013 6:00:46 PM PDT by kristinn

A White House national security official was fired last week after being caught as the mystery Tweeter who has been tormenting the foreign policy community with insulting comments and revealing internal Obama administration information for over two years.

Jofi Joseph, a director in the non-proliferation section of the National Security Staff at the White House, has been surreptitiously tweeting under the moniker @natsecwonk, a Twitter feed famous inside Washington policy circles since it began in February, 2011 until it was shut down last week. Two administration officials confirmed that the mystery tweeter was Joseph, who has also worked at the State Department and on Capitol Hill for Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Joe Biden. Until recently, he was part of the administration's team working on negotiations with Iran.

During his time tweeting under the @natsecwonk name, Joseph openly criticized the policies of his White House bosses and often insulted their intellect and appearance. At different times, he insulted or criticized several top White House and State Department officials, including former National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, Secretary of State John Kerry, and many many others.

The Daily Beast saved a long record of @natsecwonk's tweets prior to the shutting down of his Twitter feed.

“I'm a fan of Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me,” he once tweeted.

SNIP

"So when will someone do us the favor of getting rid of Sarah Palin and the rest of her white trash family? What utter useless garbage .... ,” he tweeted last October.

Wow. I'm amazed they didn't Fort Marcy Park him for that.

Valerie Jarrett is immune from public accountability for a reason. And it’s not good. She is where the evil begins and the buck stops.

There’s always time for that. Dont forget, he knows too much and he may choose to write a book.

Palin's entire family are registered Native American tribal members, even her grandson.

Imagine a republican saying something like that about a white woman democrat married to a minority with minority children.

And How is it That America Doesn't Know this about the Palin Family and Instead is Constantly Imaging Her as a Sort of White Supremacist???

Jarrett is Obama's puppet master but I do appreciate this guy's dislike of her.

He had better start thinking about switching parties, or working for the Clintons.

I have a hard time believing this guy would *really* get out of this so easily. Something ain’t right.

he should have tweeted under the name ‘FastnFuriousBenghaziBob’ ... noone in the WH or the MSM would have ever read it

"Daily Beast Exclusive: White House Official Fired for Tweeting Under Fake Name"

Obviously, that is not why he was fired. I wonder if the Daily Beast staff believes that headline.

revealing internal Obama administration information for over two years.

With all the "tools" at their disposal, it took the NSA 2 years to catch this?

LOL! He used a handle that made it even more difficult for him to be detected. "@natsecwonk" tweeted for two years and they never caught him, working in the bowels of the National Security Staff. That bunch is as bright as a bunch of bowling balls when they want to be.

His wife is a Republican staffer. Is there a second party in that swamp?

Maybe he used Sum Ting Wong or Howie Felterbush. Liberals have been suckered by those names before.
