Skip to comments.White House to investigate leak of CIA chief’s name: ‘We’re trying to understand’
Posted on 05/29/2014 1:50:31 AM PDT by Libloather
The White House will investigate how Obama's press team managed to accidentally leak the name of the CIA's Chief of Station in Kabul.
Chief of Staff Denis McDonough has deputized White House counsel Neil Eggleston to look into how the name of the top U.S. spy in Afghanistan ended up on Obama's itinerary for his weekend trip to Afghanistan, which was emailed to an estimated 6,000 members of the press.
Eggleston will review what led to the disastrous mistake and make recommendations to prevent such a disclosure from happening again.

Just a SWAG: a mole outed him.
I am so glad the WH chief of staff deputized another WH flunky to investigate this. I feel so much better now that we will get to the bottom of this fiasco. /s
Does anyone else think there is a problem with having the White House lawyer look into this? Didn’t they use a different White House lawyer to look into something before?
Why introduce a mole?
The incumbent personnel, starting at the very top, are entirely capable of this sort of screw-up with no outside help.
If Neil Eggleston (White House Counsel) finds wrongdoing on the part of his client (?), would Attorney-Client privilege apply?
The administration will not rest until this is totally scapegoated and swept under the rug. Bush’s fault.
I'll call it...."The secrets of Afghanistan" and the deaths of Americans.
The deputy bit peaks my curiosity.
OOPS, WE DID IT AGAIN!!
Never attribute motive to a thing that can be easily explained by stupidity.
Scooter Libby did it . . . . . Again. . .
Round up the usual suspects.
Counsel = Council (brain fart)
Hey—not bammys fault. It was the video!/s
Let FR help you understand: You Obamanites screwed the pooch. Again. You are chronic ****ups who have managed to blend just the right amount of malevolence with incompetence to create this living nightmare that all politically conscious, morally and fiscally responsible Americans live every day, while you all go blithely along your way daily screwing new pooches.

If you can promote someone with these great qualifications to the National Security Counsel
I would wager that The Dude had certain special "qualifications" that Bath House Barry found irresistible.
I bet someone was super mad when he heard about this on cnn.
This is no ordinary flunky. He's the Clinton's top scandal/impeachment management lawyer that Obomba recently hired to keep the lid on his many bubbling scandals.
Nobody is madder than Obama.
He’s mad, I tell you, mad.
It’s because 0bama does not attend his daily briefings not read the summaries on his IPAD
If one wants to communicate information to 0bama, one leaks said information to the Press, which is eventually reported on ESPN
You are correct. Amazing how the Clintonoids have been woven into the Obama Administration from the beginning.
It was planned — like the murders of Seal Team 6
and the murders of the VETS.
Planned by Obama, Reid, and Pelosi - traitors
to the American people and the US Constitution.
Is there any connection between the CIA in Afganistan and those who manned the outpost in Bengauzi ? Those agents had to come from somewhere and disappear to another station after the fiasco Did the exposé their leader to make an example and thereby keep them in line?
Is there a connection?
Obama’s method of ousting those whom he wants replaced by his minions...
Were trying to understand........
I call this B.S. They know damn well what the did. I do not put ANYTHING past odumbo or any of his ilk and would not be surprised if they came after me or anyone for anything at any time. They are INDEED EVIL.
Two words: community, organizer.
I’m still astonished that people have been convinced that this moron would’ve been a good president. Amazingly, the media is quick to shoot down “unqualified” republicans. Zero has been given a pass because he’s of color and is Democrat.
You can only hide the incompetence and lying so long.
Just a little dot to possibly connect. The community that 0 organized was control by a black Muslim street gang ( founded by mexican drug cartell) involved in domestic terrorism that was funded thru FerretCon by Kadaffi thru a gun running They had materials purchased and targets chosen
All coincidental I’m sure!
Scooter Libby didn’t out anyone.

They’d be likely to wave likely moles right on in... so kinda sorta both.
Everyone this spook talked to is now in danger.
A federal jury convicted I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby of lying about his role in the leak of an undercover CIA officer's identity.
No, he was convicted of perjury but it was not about “his role in the leak,” it was never established that he had any role in the leak, mainly because the actual leaker was never charged - pprobably because the leaker turned out to be on the staff of Colin Powell.
