White House blows cover of CIA’s Kabul station chief – Washington Times

The White House inadvertently blew the cover of the CIA’s top officer in Kabul during President Obama’s surprise trip to Afghanistan on Sunday.

The name of the spy agency’s station chief in Kabul was included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in Mr. Obama’s visit with U.S. troops.

The White House provided the list that was sent out in a “pool report” by a reporter traveling with the president to thousands of journalists, including foreign media, who receive the reports.

The White House reportedly recognized the mistake and issued a second, revised list that omitted the official’s name and title. The Washington Times is withholding the name of the CIA officer; it’s not clear whether the exposure will require the person to leave his post.

I’d like to think this is an accident, but, well….

It’s the Obama administration we’re talking about here.

And of course the CIA officer won’t be required to leave his post.  Well, unless he wants to avoid being murdered the next time he steps out onto any street in Afghanistan.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I’d like to think this is an accident, but, well….

    It’s the Obama administration we’re talking about here.

    My suspicion is abject stupidity. They might appear to be schemers on the domestic front, but their caginess ends at the water’s edge.
