White House blows cover of CIA’s Kabul station chief (Email also sent to foreign media...)
Washington Times ^ | 5/25/14 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 05/25/2014 6:26:25 PM PDT by jimbo123

The White House inadvertently blew the cover of the CIA’s top officer in Kabul during President Obama’s surprise trip to Afghanistan on Sunday.

The name of the spy agency’s station chief in Kabul was included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in Mr. Obama’s visit with U.S. troops.

The White House provided the list that was sent out in a “pool report” by a reporter traveling with the president to thousands of journalists, including foreign media, who receive the reports.

Isn’t this exactly what Scooter Libby went to prison for, and he didn’t even do it?

The president assured the American people that he didn’t know about this until he saw it on every international news service, and he was so very, very angry that he could bite a Lee press-on nail in half.

It was not the act of a moron. It was the act of someone who is on the terrorist’s side. Obama hates America and loves Jihadists. How the hell he got to be our President is horrific and incomprehensible.

Come on FRiends!!!!!

OK, Zero’s Pack of terrorist lovers, treason-mongers, and all-around incompetents did ANOTHER stupid thing. If you think it might have been an accident, think again.

AND, if you think the identity of the CIA’s Kabul station chief wasn’t already widely known by anybody from any Country with any reason to know it didn’t.... think again!

Brings to mind the CIA chief who was killed along with a bunch of otherwise Afghanistan a few years ago.

Yes that was on Obama’s watch.

Best line of night on other thread;

” Obama is really going to be upset when he read it in the news!”

Wonder how this individual that bozo has exposed to all was connected to Bengauzi operation? Someone wants him dead. Calling Trey Gowdy

An earlier thread said that there were only 3 reporters on this trip with Obama.

One from Reuters, one from AP, and one from Bloomberg

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3159984/posts

Obama brought Brad Paisley to perform for the troops.

Also, senior advisor John Podesta, who reportedly has a son serving in Afghanistan, joined Obama on the trip.

Reuters reporter Steve Holland is one of three pool reporters accompanying Obama. The others being Julie Pace of the AP and Margaret Talev of Bloomberg

is anyone tracking how many security breeches exposing our intelligence and military assets this administration has committed?

how many times do you have to hand top secret information to the enemy for it to amount to treason?

President gets his information through media. WH reported to media, so that President can find Chief of Station easily in future.

Then how did the WaPo reporter who broke this story find out about the CIA officer being on the list given to reporters?

from the WaPo article...

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.

How many times does the Traitorobama regime have to give aid and comfort to the enemy before someone in Congress stands up and announces that Triatorobama needs to be impeached?

I know that use to be the line, but we’ve had quite a few ‘breeches’ since 0failure took over

then again, is it a ‘breech’ if the president does it?

like outing the exact number of warheads in the country’s arsenal, as just one example

Is Podesta’s son with Al Qaeda or the Taliban?

Timing — the day after the election if R takes senate
It would have been a done deal if voter manipulation was not successful last go around.
My biggest worry;
Indiana’s SoS decertified a specific voting machine weeks before the 2012 election. (There is a 200+ page report why) My county was one involved
The same machines were used in specific precincts in purple states (Obama and certain senators carried each of those!). The results happened just as we were told it would. EXACT pattern for each area

The machine can be and were manipulated.
Only a few precincts determined the winners. Carl Rove was correct about that. And his figures may have been accurate but didn’t take into the variable presented by the bungee voting machine
So are those machines going to be used in the fall?
In 2016 for Hillary?

The report should be available thru Indiana Secretary of State. Is no one interested in securing the vote? Does anyone care?

The real story here is who is selected to replace the CIA chief. Obviously we will never know, but no doubt we have seen Obama’s replacements and they are in place to carry out the agenda with loyalty.

Inadvertently?...in the long tradition of ‘rats blowing CIA covers - like the ‘rat Church committee back in the ‘80’s which cost the lives of several agents overseas after their identities were revealed in public hearings - but of course the only person ever to go to jail for outing an agent was Republican Scooter Libby, who of course never blew anyone’s cover - ain’t life strange......

Right --and it was the WaPo reporter that first broke the story and a whole lot of reporters, many in the foreign media, saw the name of the CIA operative, BEFORE that reporter realized what's Obama's team had "inadvertently" done and pointed it out to them.

There were two posts from the WaPo already up on FR tonight.

Whole thing STINKS!

Read an article off FR that said same thing.
So why’d be make the trip. (Very expensive for just PR)?
Was the goal to mess up the ci -a ‘s operation in the region ?
Still think there’s A Bengauzi tie but how do you prove it ?
