More farm team idiocy from The Slop House.

Keep in mind that Novak never described Plame as being ‘covert’. The reporter that actually outed her as a ‘covert CIA operative’ was David Corn. And Corn only had once source for that article - Joe Wilson.

Any Afgan politician or citizen who has been seen talking to or meeting with this outed station chief is now a walking dead man.

what a bunch of buffoons.....unless of course it was intentional

Isn't everything they do in this manner intentional? If they can get an ambassador killed, why not an agent?

One of his predecessors, who apparently served two tours as Chief of Station, was outed a couple of years ago.

Yeah if you believe it's a mistake I have lots of swamp land down here to sell ya..... when you stop and think about it we will leave Afghanistan with little if any troops and now the highest ranking covert leader will be gone as well. The coincidences of this regime just continue to leap to new bounds.

You gotta wonder if Afghanistan was always about the poppies and little else.Was this poppy plantation always a dark funding mechanism for covert use a lot like Mexican gold was and still is.Seems Mena may still be alive and well only now its international.

Why is it Obama and the White House always blame someone else:

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

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

***
Oh, well, everything will be okay, then. I am sure that will keep him safe.

Perhaps this CIA officer is on Valerie’s purge list. Could be he was asking too many questions over there about some sweetheart deal in the form of a military contract.

Can’t wait to turn on the cable news to hear the pundits screeching about whoever outed this guy, as I am sure they will. I wonder when the leaker gets Scooter Libbyed.

I just posted this, too; told the Mod to pull my thread.

Obummer hates this country so much...it’s his single purpose in life I’m convinced. He HAD TO do this to make up for his visit to the troops which I’m sure he seethed with anger the whole way. He’ll also play golf today to make up for it, too.

Per Yoda, mmmm, hate is strong with this one it is.

There have been 6 Memorial Day celebrations since he took office.

How many has Obama attended at Arlington? I don’t recall him having 100% attendance.

Now, he make a surprise visit to Afghanistan, and that precluded him from attending services at Arlington today......How convenient.

Along with him being a no-show at church in over 5 years, he doesn’t attend services such as today at Arlington & the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

How many MUSLIM events will he attend in Afghanistan???

It’s reasonble to ponder why Obozo wants the top CIA chief in Afghanistan dead at this exact time.

Related to this:

"U.S. intelligence officers say, there is deep division within their ranks–and with the White House—about the strength of al Qaeda in the place where that war began: Afghanistan. The current estimate of the terror group’s presence there says that al Qaeda has a little more than 100 fighters in the country’s province of Kunar. That, these intelligence officers contend, is wildly out of date. “Al Qaeda has a presence all over Afghanistan today,” a senior U.S. intelligence official told The Daily Beast. “This is the conversation that no one wants to have. What are they going to do after 2014 when most of our troops will be gone?”

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.

TWITTER UPS 0BAMA!
