Just add it to the list of Obama foreign policy gaffes.

Right down there on the hundred eighty-second page of small type.

Yeah. Probably the same way Vice-Puke Josef Biden “accidentally” revealed that SEAL Team Six was behind the takedown of Usama bin Laden.

When in doubt, pin it on Scooter Libby.

So.... it’s OK if a Dem WH “outs” a CIA operative? Where are the pundits who were howling when Plame was “outed”?

Before he is done I fully expect him to release the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone anywhere in the world who has ever provided any information to agency workers.

The damage to US intel will last multiple generations.

I’m sure it was not “inadvertant”. And if violence should come to this man, obama is surely the one just as responsible as the man he put in jail for releasing “the video” and should also be jailed accordingly.

After the hundredth time it ceases to credibly be an accident or incompetence.

Plame wasn’t an operative at the time, wasn’t even in the field. She was riding a desk in DC and they told everyone in their neighborhood who she worked for. Revealing she worked for the CIA was no more revealing a secret than saying Obama is corrupt and incompetent.

From a related thread:

the press office raised no objection, apparently because military officials had provided the list to distribute to news organizations.

So, the press office is already blaming the military officials.

[Would the military be providing names of CIA personnel?]

It is glaringly obvious now to those with eyes to see it.
The jihadis know it. The Egyptians know it and they are none too happy about it.

.....and Lewis Scooter Libby is in jail, why?

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald carried on a many months' investigation after learning it was Richard Armitage who "inadvertently" allowed Plame's name released (of course, Plame was no secret agent and her hubby, Joe Wilson spoke of his wife's role at the Agency) but not to worry, I'm certain the Agency doesn't mind giving up one of its own to the enemy.

Yup, but the media played it up as a big damaging exposure. This is bigger, but watch the media go all silent as they protect their selected boy-king - can’t let him look bad, y’know!
