Valerie Plame, ex-intelligence officials slam White House for 'astonishing' CIA leak
NY Daily News ^ | 5/27/14 | Leslie Larson

**SNIP**

Valerie Plame, the ex-CIA operative outed by the W. Bush administration, also chimed in.

“Astonishing: White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan,” she tweeted in a sardonic message on Monday.

The name of the CIA’s chief of station in Kabul, the agency’s top spy in Afghanistan, was listed among the 15 officials briefing Obama upon his arrival at Bagram Air Base.

The White House only caught the error when Washington Post reporter Scott Wilson alerted the press office, after Obama’s schedule was included in an email that was circulated to as many as 6,000 members of the media.

Still thinking relevance for a trumped up romanticization of being a flunky clerk. How can I connect this with “ME?”

ex-CIA operative outed by the W. Bush administration,

Huh, and all this time I thought it was Wilson to Armitage/Powell to Novak..........

As for that yellow cake party stuff that Wilson claimed Hussein never got from Niger, Canada bought all 500 metric tons of it from Iraq back in 2005 and we helped ship it to them......

I'm sure Mikey thanks her for her self-promoting concern concerning his Regime-induced concern.

If Scott Wilson of the WP blew the whistle, how did he know the name of the CIA station chief in Kabul to begin with?

Did titles accompany the names on the list of recipients of the release?

And let it never be forgotten that Colin Powell knew his deputy Richard Armitage was the leaker FOR THREE YEARS and did not tell President Bush.

There is no excuse possible for that breach of honor.

I loathe Colin Powell. Bush only gave him a cabinet position, because he was expected to.

“That’s it?...”

What else could we really expect from her? Any more than that...and her monthly, direct-deposit retirement checks go MIA.

Once again this administration fouls-up... and Obama finds out about “it in the Media”. There are no adults in the room.

A blast from the past...

“...aides to Pelosi and Conyers said they have already had brief discussions with staffers in the office of Congressman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the Government Oversight Committee, about his intention of calling for hearings into the leak case and possibly getting answers to lingering questions about...the leak, and the role White House political adviser...Played as well.
Today Rep. Waxman’s office has announced that his Oversight Committee will hold:
a hearing on whether White House officials followed appropriate procedures for safeguarding the identity of CIA agent... At the hearing, the Committee will receive testimony from...and other experts regarding the disclosure and internal White House security procedures for protecting...identity from disclosure and responding to the leak after it occurred. The hearing is scheduled for...

In addition, the Committee today sent a letter to Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald commending him for his investigation and requesting a meeting to discuss testimony by Mr. Fitzgerald before the Committee.

The Oversight Committee will webcast the hearing live at www.oversight.house.gov.

Hhhhhhuuuuuummmmmm, so Pelosi, Waxman, and Conyers got all liquored up on the idea to have a special prosecutor look into “the leak.” Where are they now?

Special Prosecutor anyone?

"She never was a CIA “Operative.”

--------------------------------------->

But she did have a bad ass convertible she drove around all the while saying her privacy had been compromised.

Lots of driving that convertible around claiming her privacy was compromised so much it put her in danger.

We know this is true because that is what she told EVERYBODY as she drove that convertible around for photo shoots.

She claimed someone “outed” her secret identity, after her name and occupation was posted on Who's who.

I think you're on to something. I got out my decoder ring (I got it from a box of cereal) and put in Plame's tweet: "Astonishing: White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan."

Here's what came out: "Obama is either very incompetent or a traitor. Impeach him before it's too late."

Where is Patrick Fitzgerald ?
Surely he can pocket another few million bucks and get someone to trip up in their testimony.

Obama met with Friedman Et al yesterday to keep the leak off the front pages.

They don’t want an airing of this because a discussion will show that.Cheney was innocent.and the left lied for months about it.

Token response. Lame, ineffectual, insincere.

Yep, sounds just like Valerie Plame to me.
