White House launches internal probe into accidental outing of CIA official
Fox News ^ | 5/27/14 | Staff

Posted on 05/27/2014 3:45:21 PM PDT by Nachum

The White House has launched an internal probe after its press office inadvertently outed the top CIA official in Afghanistan -- a national security blunder that could put that individual at risk. A spokeswoman with the National Security Council confirmed to Fox News that the White House chief of staff asked White House Counsel Neil Eggleston to “look into what happened” and make recommendations on “how the administration can improve processes and make sure something like this does not happen again.” The brief statement from the National Security Council was the first on-the-record comment made by the administration since the

Yes, they’ll get right on that. It’ll be Bush’s fault, or the gridlock in Congress, or those nasty Repubs. Haven’t heard the VWRC mentioned lately, time to give them a turn.

Accidental and Inadvertently?

Somebody better be fired. And the Washington Post reporter who sent out the names should be fired for thinking that he shouldn’t have emailed the list to a zillion other reporters.

They are already saying they are going to find out so it never happens again........I am truly fed up with this line of reasoning. WHO DID IT? And will they be prosecuted?? What evil clowns are in charge of this country! Oh, and I am SURE they will not be be to find any actual wrongdoing on the part of anyone in the WH. They NEVER can.

Ahhhh, the old “internal probe” riff. I think I’ve heard that one before. For some, it never seems to get old. To this administration, it’s like recycling the same old jokes over and over and over. And their supporters...? They seem to get the same chuckle from them every time, no matter how many times they get used. Is Scooter still in the slammer?

If you look at all of the pre-attack Bengazi “slip-ups”, a Hobson’s choice inevitably floats up into one’s mind:

1. These are all slip-ups and regime is the most stupid in human history

2. These “slip-ups” are deliberate acts as prep for a “Cyclops/Stevens exchange” negotiated by Obama right before his squeaker re-election

WHICH of those two is politically better for The Regime right now?

So what might you do NOW in order to better camouflage the awful, dastardly truff?

Yeah, you’d make one or two really basic, huge slip-ups, something that might require a Scooby-Doo banana peel sound effect.

SORRY but I think this latest “slip-up” is also nothing of the sort:

IT IS CAMOUFLAGE.

Let me guess. Bammy is angry about this, is going to get to the bottom of it and will hold people accountable. Except that last thing will never happen.

Same as all his scandals. Lather, rinse, repeat.

The Obama White House always investigates themselves and find nothing wrong with their actions.

I would love to see the day when people stand up and demand an investigating by people other than the Obama admin investigating the Obama admin.

This is really unacceptable.

When President Obama learned of this incident on the news - like all us other Americans - he was really mad. He won’t sleep until responsible parties have been identified and punished and measures have been taken to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.

4 phases of how the Obama Admin deal with crises:

1. Express Outrage

2. Resignation of a low level lackey.

2. Claim that there is an investigation under way.

4. after 6 months of inaction, claim it is a partisan issue.

"How did this happen"

"We are incompetent idiots."

"Right, but what will we tell the press?"

"Anything, they are incompetent idiots too."

"Problem is some of them are starting to ask some real questions."

"Well then we will just investigate it until it's a non-story, then we will blame someone and give them a promotion."

"OK, its worked before."

The model is have for this is sort of like the IRS scandal:

After it first broke, the gummint folks all said, “Come on..! You know the guv is totally incompetent..! Do you REALLY think they could orchestrate all these politically motivated audits WITHOUT word leaking out and causing a HUGE scandal…?!?!!” >_<

Now, you and I do know they’re incompetent, sure.

But gummint folks think we PEASANTS are the idiots who walk around with a warm wet spot on our trousers all day, and that we can’t tie our shoes —they think THEY are the geniuses.

When a gummint person TELLS you to consider them as TOTAL IDIOTS you can be very, very sure that there is a very desperate attempt to hide something EXTREMELY bad.

Another little-known point that I’m not sure you’ll believe:

The CIA chief-of-station posting is made IN OPEN COLLABORATION WITH THE HOST COUNTRY.

Yeah, they ALREADY KNOW who he or she is. And why shouldn’t they? That guy will probably never leave the Embassy, anyway. FIELD AGENTS really do the important work.

Did the Regime really give up that much via this “slip up”…? No.

This was NOT a mistake and they didn’t give up as much as people are thinking.

Monday the WH press office was already blaming 'the military'. They said the military provided the list and they initially ran with it, until someone pointed out the CIA person listed.

My question to that: Why would the military provide a list that also included CIA personnel?

How much of an internal probe do you need to read the part of a memo which says "From" and "To"?

I don’t believe it was accidental and I’d say there’s a cover up going on. Is this guy connected in any way to that Muzzie that just got promoted per a nearby thread.
