Once again, the sloppiness of the Obama administration is brought to light. An interaction between a pool reporter travelling with Obama on Air Force One to Afghanistan, the Military on the Ground in Afghanistan, and the Regime staffers has resulted in a serious breach of security.
Not only was the cover blown for the CIA Station Chief, but for those around him as well.
The circumstances surrounding the breach are detailed as originating with a simple request by a pool reporter for the names of those briefing Obama at Bagram Air Force Base. A White House press person went to the military and asked for that list, which was then sent back to the White House, with a note that it was “for the pool” or public distribution.
It was then given to the pool reporter who included the information in his report. That report was then sent back to the White House for review. After reviewing the report, it was approved and released by the White House.
In the discussion one unanswered question being asked is how the name got onto the military list in the first place.
Bob Baer, a former CIA agent comments that he believes the Taliban will definitely now be targeting this individual and that this breach may now have necessitated the removal of the entire unit.
It’s true, loose lips sink ships.
