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

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“nyuk nyuk nyuk”
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.
Its “Who’s Fault is it Anyway”
internal probe = find out if anyone is retiring soon
Oh Puleaseeeee,not this crap again!
Just more smoke and mirrors.
Why don’t they just blame it on Scooter Libby?
"This was no boating accident!"
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.
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.
I believe you are correct about that.
HA!! And it leads right to Bambi..!! ROFLOL!!!!
LOL. 0bama is mad as hell and he will not rest blah blah blah.
They're lying --the air is FINE
“We can’t comment as there is an investigation ongoing.”
“........accidental outing of CIA official”.
Yet another lie. We all know that was no accident.
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.
"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."
Well, expect the usual “gag rule” simply because THEY are investigating IT!!!
internal probe is just an other word for cover up, do nothing and buy time
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.
Dude that was like two days ago. You expect me to remember back that far?
.... he was really mad. He wont sleep until responsible parties have been identified and punished and measures have been taken to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.
We’ll know he’s really, really, really mad for real when he won’t play golf until responsible parties have been identified, etc. [/sar]
Geeze effin Geeze!
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.
Manufactured investigation to try to draw the sheeple’s attention away from Benghazi, the IRS, and on and on!
Dude, man, I like, saw the name on the list and like called my BFF over at the CIA and I like, said, like, hey man, is this a problem or something?
Another day, another probe, another investigation, another cover-up, another dose of Barbra Striesand from the most corrupt and incompetent administration ever to sit in the now 1/2 white house.
4b. that’s like two years old duuuude!
which goes to prove that our president is no better than Ron Burgundy - he’ll read anything that comes across that teleprompter.
Ignorance of what treason is, is no excuse. This was no blunder.
Some dastard is behind a vast conspiracy to make the Obama Administration do inconceivably stupid and incompetent things, continually. NOW WHO COULD IT BE?
Yeah, that’s the ticket. Appoint a blue ribbon panel of White House stooges to investigate the White House blunder. They’ll study the misstep, take administrative testimony and devise strategies to assure that such an occurrence will never happen to this President again.
Scooter Libby wet to jail...AND HE DIDN’T EVEN DO IT!
Republicans should be demanding jail for the leaker. Nothing less.
