White House Blows Cover of CIA Chief In Afghanistan: Scooter Libby Has No Comment

Greatest administration ever!

Remember the myth Democrats and left perpetuated that Scooter Libby and Dick Cheney were the ones who leaked Valerie Plame’s identity to reporters as “retribution” against Joe Wilson, who wrote some stupid op-ed that hardly anybody knew about? Turns out it was State Department flak and Iraq War opponent, Richard Armitage that leaked her name.

Well the geniuses in the Obama White House actually have blown the cover of a CIA agent in Afghanistan. How would you like to wake up and read that in the newspaper? From USA Today:

The White House accidentally blew the cover of the top CIA officer in Afghanistan Saturday, when his name and title were released in an e-mail sent to reporters who traveled with President Obama on his surprise visit to Bagram Air Field.

The CIA officer’s identity was released as part of a list of U.S. officials who were attending a military briefing with Obama at Bagram, theWashington Post reported.

The individual was identified as “Chief of Station,” a term used for the top spy in a country, according to the Post.

The White House recognized the error and issued a revised list that did not include the official’s name.

The list was sent in an e-mail to reporters traveling with Obama to Afghanistan, and then further distributed in a “pool report” to reporters not taking part in the trip, including members of foreign press agencies. In all, more than 6,000 people were sent the initial pool report that included the CIA officer’s identity.

6000 people. Nice work, morons.
