    The White House accidentally revealed the name of the CIA's top intelligence official in Afghanistan to some 6,000 journalists.

    The person was included on a list of people attending a military briefing for President Barack Obama during his surprise visit to Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan on Sunday. It's common for such lists to be given to the media, but names of intelligence officials are rarely provided. In this case, the individual's name was listed next to the title, "Chief of Station." The print pool reporter -- a journalist allowed access to or is given information about an event who relays it to the rest of the media -- copied and pasted the list that was provided by the White House.

    And people like Truthseeker think the goobermint is competent enough to have all of those conspiracies and coverups like JFK, and yet at the same time are stupid enough to let something like this happen.

      Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter is smiling again. When somebody speaks of incompetent administrations, he's no longer at the top of the list.

          Considering the firestorm that resulted from the "outing"[1] of Valerie Plame back in 2003 I wonder if there will be calls for a special prosecutor to investigate the leak.

          Oh, who am I kidding?







          1. I put outing in quotation marks since by all accounts her role as a CIA agent was pretty much an open secret in Washington.

          I'm always still in trouble again

                  I remember when you cut a star from a tin can, put in your wallet and then flashed it at me saying you were a DEA agent and needed to seize my bacon as a "controlled substance." IIRC, that was how you gained a hook for your hand.

                    That was halloween.

                    I am glad nobody knows I am a real double-nought spy or it would mean I wasted those $10 I sent in to the CIA address on the back of that comic book, next to the Xray specs ad.
