Mugato: The comments section is reasoned and rational.


You should see the comments on Infowars!

/A friend told me about it. Seriously.

Yet another attempt by this administration to divert attention away from Benghazi.

We know all your tricks Lord Obama.

Oh right, he isn't a Republican....

Which is why the leftist markist fascist nazi press didn't mention this. Only YOU and your team of hoverround commandoes know about it! This ONE SECRET the GOVERNMENT doesn't WANT YOU to KNOW!

/Also your racism was a nice touch. It's why rational people identify Republicans with racism.

Really? You're telling me you don't remember all the pictures of president Bush as a chimp? You see the word chimp(ski) and you associate that with a black person? Who's the racist here?

Are you really that ignorant not to know comparing black people to monkeys has been a racial slur for over a century?

Of course not, but using the context of this thread, I believe the original poster was referring to the bush/chimp pictures. You are the one that brought race into the conversation.

Turn about is fair play and all that.


Pointing out a historic fact is racism now. I'm the real racist. Got it.

If anyone believes the CIA Chief of Station isn't known to those they hunt, I have a cookie for them.

It's the people that work for the Chief who need double-secret cover. But, hell, all the super secret types use non-official cover anyway.

They have to publicly announce those they send on official cover. I'm sure the vaunted 101st Keyboard Commandos know that.
 
2014-05-26 11:44:15 AM
Sorry about that, Chief.
 
2014-05-26 11:46:14 AM
To add...

I challenge you to Google "CIA Station Chief during the Vietnam War" and find out how many pictures and articles you get from the time he was in-country.

Hint: He was all over the f*cking news.

"Mistake"


Sorry, boys and girls, the president isn't stupid, this was done on purpose; the chief must have displeased the administration.

P.S. I don't care if you think the impossible is true, that they somehow let it slip their mind.

Put it to you this way: There are some things that people don't ever do unless it's on purpose, and when an organization obsessed with keeping things from you (the WH) lets that slip, it's on purpose.


Go on believing childish lies that they were dumb enough to let a major secret slip, on paper even where they knew what they were writing and definitely double-checked.

Stop being so gullible.

This administration has displayed levels of ineptness far beyond anything imaginable.

Don't take the previous sentence as a challenge, White House staffers. Just burrow behind your desks, try not to break anything, and wait for 2016.

THIS. Outing the station chief is a classic double-reverse ropadope with a rebound off the backboard maneuver pulled off by our idiotic, bumbling, incompetent evil genius mastermind "President". You'd have to be blind, ignorant fool to think it's more likely this is a simple mistake by a low-level staffer.

Jesus, this thread attracted the Freepers like flies to shiat.  Yes, of course, Obama personally writes every press release. He probably deliberately put the Station Chief's name in while laughing evilly and wishing he could grow a mustache to twirl.

Actually, I see that it was ghare and not you that brought race into the mix, so there's that. I am just pointing out that maybe, sometimes, people see racism when it is not really present. I don't see where the original comment was about race so much as about the double standards applied to the current president and the former one. Again, who brought race to the table?

Not to say the VA doesn't have systemic problems, f*cksake... I f*cking work there and tear my hair out trying to do my job. The only reason I keep a high-n-tight is because I might literally tear my f*cking hair out sometimes. Oh, and it's easier to maintain.

jshine: TheOther: //spy novels are just like real life, right?

Just look at the people who have been caught & convicted of espionage.  It's a real bunch of James Bonds.


I haven't read many Bond novels.  They seem more like soft-core violence porn than spy novels.
The spies that have been caught and convicted are obviously failed spies, so I don't know how representative they are of the entire population of spies.

Barack Obama will be remembered as one of our greatest presidents.

This is intolerable to Republicans. They cannot admit it. They will do and say anything as long as it reinforces their denial.

the chief of station is almost always declared to the host government. the one in kabul is declared. there are many agents and officers of the cia that are declared and are known to their host government contacts. they work together and relay intelligence in both directions. the person in that position is a senior level (equivalent to SES/SFS) and there are only a few countries they could go to. In any country they go to...they would already be declared anyways.

declaring them to the rest of the world...not so much.

also, the headquarters of the cia is a known address is kabul. it's mentioned in ghost wars by stephen coll. it was somebody else's headquarters before theirs. sort of a symbolic FU. a simple google search will give a lot of news.

i worked in kabul for two years for the Embassy.

How is "a person who annoys me" an obviously racist comment. So yes, if I shouted "racism!" Over that comment, I would be bringing race into a conversation where it did not exist. I believe that playing the race card anytime I don't agree with what is being said is a firm if racism.

Obama is Dubya on 'roids in many ways.  Sure, some social positions are different, but the policies  are still making Americans poor and take away our rights and freedoms. And he's been lying to everyone, just like George W. Bush(and his father H.W.).

Both parties are run by rich people.

Now, rich people are not the enemy, but the ones who want too much(and usually stop at nothing to get it) are certainly not our friends.

I'm sure the military runs most of the PR sh*t over there plus help from a WH team. But, I'd be pretty sure, if the station chief was named, the State Dept. supplied it to them for the list. CIA Station Chief's are technically staff of Dept. of State. At least for official purposes.

I'm always amazed at how some people have the temerity to suggest that Obama is worse than Bush.

Hate him all you want. But Obama didn't mislead the country into a war that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis.

Hundreds of thousands. Dead.

The only other recent case came under significantly different circumstances, when former CIA operative Valerie Plame was exposed as officials of the George W. Bush administration sought to discredit her husband, a former ambassador and fierce critic of the decision to invade Iraq.
