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.

What BS. 0bummer had to make up for his trip to the troops he I'm sure was pressured to make...to satiate his hate, why not name drop...of course by accident...what a better way to put our troops and country in danger. What a demon. As Yoda would say, the hate is strong with this one it is.

This was NOT a “mistake”. Obama delights in having US citizens put at risk and murdered. He is a calculating treasonist who knows no one can touch him. Others have been tried and jailed for such “mistakes”.

The liberals were out for blood with the identification of Valerie Plame as an undercover CIA operative. So the liberals need to be out for blood on this issue.

Or does it not matter because a good Democrat is president???

That’s what we get for letting this idiot traipse around the world, wasting tax money so he can get PR pics, enabling his media propagandists to deflect attention from the VA scandal at home. This fool is fooling no one.

They should have learned their lesson when they killed Bin Laden and then revealed that Seal Team 6 was involved. Shortly thereafter,over 30 Seals were dead in a helicopter “accident.” Everyone connected to this administration, from Obama on down, should be convicted of treason.

“With this administration you never know what to believe.”

Why would any thinking person try to twist themselves into a pretzel to attempt to make any distinction whatsoever? The simple answer is a resounding why bother? Since the keynote speech at the DNC in 2004, he has yet to give me any inclination to believe anything he says while on prompter or not. But is is far easier to have concrete proof when he is off.

Mistakenly???? You have a bunch of rank amateurs running around in our White House who are totally out of control. These are juvenile-minded jackasses with a great deal of contempt for America.

Will preparing to stand a flag line with the Patriot Guard for fallen Navy SEAL Nick Spehar, I was speaking with Nick's grandfather.

For what it is worth, his grandfather did not buy the governments story believing instead that he had died in the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden and that the government concocted this story to get those young men killed back in country for burial in a manner that left Obama's Sin Lying intact.

Like I said, FWIW.

It’s only an DOS ambassador here or CIA station chief there. What does it matter? They think he has their backs are covered?

Every now and then he has to remind them he has them by the “balls”. Inadvertent, I think not.

It was intentional. Obama was sending a message to Karzai. This was payback for the snub yesterday. The station chief saved Karzai from numerous assasination attempts over the years and now Obama has formally outed him and is going to pull him out of Kabul.

Democrats Privately Calling Obama 'Detached,' 'Flat Footed,' 'Incompetent'
Weekly Standard / Daniel Halpern / Posted by Sub-Driver

CNN's John King reports that Democrats are privately calling President Obama "detached," "flat footed," and "incompetent." "Forget for a moment that Republican outrage," said King on his CNN show this morning. "More and more Democrats in key 2014 races are calling for the president to get a spine, they say, and fire his Veterans Affairs secretary. And what more and more Democrats are saying privately is scathing, calling the president and his team detached, flat footed, even incompetent.

"Maggie Haberman," said King turning to a panelist, "that's what strikes me, what democrats are saying privately in the wakes of the healthcare.gov problems, they see a president who doesn't want to take command, doesn't want to act fast. Raising the competence question. Some Democrats, who believe in government, [are saying] this White House doesn't appear to have its hand on the lever."

Haberman of Politico agreed, cited more examples, and added: "All of this adds up to somebody who just doesn't seem at all involved."

Oh, I dunno---Obama outing a CIA chief in America-hating Afghanistan is certainly a corker. But this here takes the cake for presidential incompetence.

Boobamba gave this boob ntl security clearance.

Boobamba's campaign van driver attends WH Situation Room
meetings. Tommy Vietor is Hillary's top pick for Secretary of state.

===============================================

Course, Hillary's all girl State Dept is right up there when talking incompetence. Musta been having a bad hair day when the girls couldn't name even one of Hillary's accomplishments.

It would be funny watching the most incompetent president in U.S. history except people are getting hurt and in many cases killed by his incompetents.

It brings up memory’s of the Democrat’s media monopoly injustice that allowed them to actually attack Sarih Pailn as inexperienced instead of acknowledging Obama’s utterly unprecedented lack of leadership( AKA excursive) experience prior to taking office.

This of course brings feelings of injury and insult to the people hurt and killed by this incompetents every-time the Press chooses to just whitewash the resulting failures and deaths.

There are consequences to raw political power, and unparalleled news media corruption and biased.
