White House Mistakenly Identifies CIA Chief in Afghanistan Name sent to 6000 reporters)
The Washington Post ^ | Sunday, May 25, 2014 | Greg Miller

Posted on 05/25/2014 6:00:17 PM PDT by kristinn

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.

SNIP

The Post is withholding the name of the CIA officer at the request of Obama administration officials...

SNIP

The list was circulated by e-mail to reporters who traveled to Afghanistan with Obama, and disseminated further when it was included in a “pool report,” or summary of the event meant to be shared with other news organizations, including foreign media, not taking part in the trip.

In this case, the pool report was filed by Washington Post White House bureau chief Scott Wilson. Wilson said he had copied the list from the e-mail provided by White House press officials and included it in a report that was sent to a distribution list with more than 6,000 recipients.

Wilson said that after the report was distributed, he noticed the unusual reference to the station chief and asked White House press officials in Afghanistan whether they had intended to include that name.

Initially, the press office raised no objection, apparently because military officials had provided the list to distribute to news organizations. But senior White House officials realized the mistake and scrambled to issue an updated list without the CIA officer’s name. The mistake, however, already was being noted on Twitter, although without the station chief’s name.

Treason. But that’s OK. He’s a half-black man trapped in a woman’s body.

The CIA top officer in the 'Stan is a member of the federal government. He's had 5 years to ponder whether his loyalty is to the Constitution or to the Chicago Thief. He made his choice.

Sucks to be him. What's the spread on how long he lives, and why should I care?

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

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

Ha! The rear echelon desk jockey Valerie Plame’s husband Joe Wilson had her name published in “Who’s Who In Washington” before the Iraq invasion even took place. Long before Richard Armitage told Bob Novak. Scooter was just a patsy to give Fitzpatrick something to crow about.

We used to have human assets in Iran.

A decade or more ago some idiot sent a “reply ALL” email and in effect KILLED every one of those assets.

I have to allow that does sound made up.

I heard the Mullahs literally HUNG THEM UP BY THEIR BALLS until they died.
