White House Blows Cover

CIA station chief revealed.

Barack Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan on Sunday, attempting to showcase his “support” for the troops. During the trip, the administration blew the cover of the CIA station chief in Kabul by including his name on a list provided to news organizations. The White House soon realized the mistake and withdrew the name, but the damage may have been done. The Washington Post quickly drew a comparison with the revelation of “former CIA operative” (a.k.a. pencil-pusher) Valerie Plame’s identity by the Bush administration, which the Left turned into a head-hunt for Dick Cheney. In the end his aide, Scooter Libby, was the only one punished for obstruction of “justice” in the investigation. By contrast, the Obama administration revealed the name of the station chief in Kabul, a hot spot, if you haven’t heard. According to former UN ambassador John Bolton, “This is utter incompetence. There is no justification for this. There is no explanation for it. It’s like there’s nobody in charge of the White House.” Not to worry; the White House is going to “look into what happened.” Early word is the leak was because of a YouTube video that crossed a red line.
