    An unidentified Obama administration official exposed the name of the highest-ranking CIA officer in Kabul on Saturday by accidentally placing it on a list of names provided to a bunch of media outlets.

    The list contained the names of several senior U.S. officials who took part in a military briefing during President Barack Obama’s surprise Memorial Day visit to Afghanistan to glad-hand with the troops, reports The Washington Post.

    The list candidly described the head of the clandestine service in Kabul as “chief of station.” The CIA specifically uses the title to refer to the top spy stationed in every country around the world.

    The unidentified CIA station chief was among 15 senior U.S. officials who gave Obama a military briefing at Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military base in Afghanistan.

    Other, non-covert officials at the meeting included four-star Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., a Marine who commands all U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan, and James B. Cunningham, the U.S. Ambassador to the country.

    Yeah, it was a "mistake." :rolleyes:

    That's their story and they're stickin' to it.

    What kind of bumbling, bungling nincompoop idiots don't know they've put CIA's Chief of Station on a media release?? :BangHead:

    I can't think of a reason they would do it on purpose. However, after the big deal they made out of the release of Valerie Plame's name who at the time was a former covert CIA agent this should be a big deal.

    Years ago I came to the conclusion that these sorts of things are probably not accidents, and anything I read about the CIA in the media is likely misinformation. For what purpose the dissemination of the station chief's name in Afghanistan fits a strategy, I have no idea, but I sure hope it does!
