Remember Valarie Plame the non-covert CIA stateside employee was not outed by one Lewis “Scooter” Libby? Well unlike Affair de Plame, the Obama regime has outed a real covert deployed CIA employee. I would assume to soon to be former CIA chief of station for Afghanistan, from Scott Johnson, Powerline:
Meanwhile in Kabul
Today comes word that the White House blew the cover of the CIA station chief in Kabul by identifying him in a list submitted to Washington Post White House bureau chief Scott Wilson and other reporters covering Obama’s trip to Kabul. Wilson copied the list in the pool report that he disseminated to 6,000 recipients (“including foreign media, not taking part in the trip”) before noting the reference to the “Chief of Station” named on the list.
We have two-and-a-half years to go before Obama serves out his term and makes way for his successor. We are in the Killer Rabbit phase of his presidency, when the consequences of disastrous policies manifest themselves and pure cock-ups cannot be concealed. The president is Carterized; he becomes a figure of derision. He’s only holding the office down temporarily, but it’s a long, long way to temporary.
By retracting and redacting the press release, will the Regime Obama now pretend nothing happened?
