THE Obama administration has accidentally revealed the name of the CIA’s top official in Afghanistan in an email to thousands of journalists. The officer’s name — identified as “chief of station” in Kabul — was included by US embassy staff on a list of 15 senior American officials who met with President Obama during his surprise Saturday visit to Bagram Air Field.
The list was sent to a Washington Post reporter who was representing the news media, who then sent it out to the White House “press pool” list, which contains as many as 6,000 recipients. The Associated Press is withholding the officer’s name at the request of the Obama administration, who said its publication could put his life and those of his family members in danger.
A Google search appears to reveal the name of the officer’s wife and other personal details. White House officials realised the error after the Post reporter notified them, and sent out a new list without the station chief’s name.
Wasnt there ANOTHER incident like this…where a supposed “covert agent” who drove to work at Langley and whose husband referred to her as “my wife the spy”??
What was her name again???
Wasnt there a HUGE screaming and whining and massive “outrage” that culminated in a man being charged with perjury??? The JugEared Jerk hands out the details of a CIA officer to SIX THOUSAND PRESSTITUTES ….(crickets chirping).
Oh and this
A former CIA officer, John Kiriakou, was sentenced to 30 months in prison in January after pleading guilty to disclosing to a reporter the name of an undercover agency officer.
Wonder if he can get his sentence reversed, seeing as the SCOAMF’s staff cant even send a fucking EMAIL without screwing up.
