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

clearly he was thinking he was clever enough not to get caught...
2) The tweets that got him in trouble
While @NatSecWonk is not active anymore, The Daily Beast saved a few of Josephs 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 didnt 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 Clintons chief of staff, her husband and former U.S. congressman, and two Obama aides, both prominent authors.
******************(hahahhahhahahah lol lol)
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.
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.
We shall forever be in his debt!
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.
But the White House thinks Wow !
I thought that BHO was VJ 's sock puppet.
Valerie Jarrett is a vacuous cipher.
But the White House thinks
"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 .... "
I really like this guy.
He didn’t reveal any State secrets. He just stated his opinion of some of the people he saw. Happens all the time.
Poke the vacuous cypher, get the metrosexual horns.
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.
Director of non-proliferation at the NSC?
Really? Engaged in this kind of behavior?
We have children in the White House...
Except the NSA techniques off’d him. He should’ve known better.
