The White House has fired National Security Council official Jofi Joseph for running an anonymous Twitter account that harshly criticized Obama administration policies and members, sometimes in scathingly personal terms.

Mr. Joseph was nonproliferation director at the NSC, and was involved in preparing for nuclear negotiations with Iran. He was also poised to move to a top Pentagon job before his abrupt dismissal

2) The tweets that got him in trouble

While @NatSecWonk is not active anymore, The Daily Beast saved a few of Joseph’s most recent tweets. They include:

“I’m a fan of Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me.” This posting certainly didn’t sit well with Obama – Jarrett is a close aide and friend of the president.

“Was Huma Abedin wearing beer goggles the night she met Anthony Wiener? Almost as bad a pairing as Samantha Powers and Cass Sunstein,” he wrote. The tweet bashed four people – former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, her husband and former U.S. congressman, and two Obama aides, both prominent authors.

I wish it was against the law for the use of the word “Christian” in the appalling cult and in their bloody rag they produce.

And “what was he thinking?”

How about, “How could we have elected a man who has surrounded himself with America’s greatest Communist traitors?” And, “why hasn’t the media informed the American people who these people surrounding the president are, and what they are doing?”

“...was involved in preparing for nuclear negotiations with Iran. He was also poised to move to a top Pentagon job...”

It would seem there is more to the story.

I saw a couple of these on one of the early-morning TV shows--one to the effect that Chelsea inherited the vices of both of her parents, another that Hillary set few policy goals in the Middle East and had no wins.

Guy may have been fired at the urging of a Clintonista. He might have some inside information of use to Hillary's opponents in 2016.

Allow 4 Americans to die in Benghazi? Job safe.

Use IRS as the enforcement wing of the DNC? Job safe until cushy retirement option given.

Create Obamacare website? Job safe.

Snarkily tweet about Obama's gang? Fired, run out of town on a rail, tarred and feathered and then they start getting nasty.

Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me.

I thought that BHO was VJ 's sock puppet.

But the White House thinks
Valerie Jarrett is a vacuous cipher.

Wow !

He also said this:

"So when will someone do us the favor of getting rid of Sarah Palin and the rest of her white trash family? What utter useless garbage .... "

He didn’t reveal any State secrets. He just stated his opinion of some of the people he saw. Happens all the time.

If this guys silly but perfectly legal tweets were so bad he got fired, why was it OK for Obama’s EPA director to use fake Email accounts to hid her identity in contravention of U. S. law?

The only way to get fired from the 0bama administration is to tell the truth about it.

Well, he did say that 0bama relies on the vacuous cipher so he didn’t really reverse the hierarchy.
