Did White House inadvertently publicly identify CIA station chief in Kabul?

President Obama made a surprise appearance in Afghanistan on Sunday.

There is now buzz that the White House revealed the name of the CIA station chief in Kabul to a pool of reporters:

A huge blunder, if the reports are accurate.

‘Have fun storming the White House’! Secret Service mocked over fence jumper

http://twitter.com/#!/freddoso/status/516690886202490880

As WaPo’s Carol Leonnig reported, the Secret Service apparently messed up even more than previously thought when it came to confronting White House fence jumper Omar Gonzalez. And now, the White House is paying the price … with the public:

I think the one issue uniting left and right in our country is that maybe the White House's security isn't totally great.

— Isaac Morrison (@Thorrison) September 29, 2014

If the Secret Service hasn’t done it already, hiring an image consultant would be a good next step.

So you're telling me the same agency that hired hookers in Colombia botched White House security? Who could have ever seen that coming…

— Hipster Serpico (@KimMarcumTexas) September 29, 2014

We're sure that the fence jumper isn't still in the White House now, correct?

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 29, 2014

The Secret Service seems better at keeping secrets than serving the President.

— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) September 29, 2014

More like Secretly Bad Service. HA.

— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivianuzzi) September 29, 2014

As punishment, Michelle Obama is going to make the Secret Service eat a week's worth of her school lunches.

They finally figured it out when POTUS said, "Hey, wait a minute, you're not the guy I appointed Secretary of Labor." http://t.co/gdmNMO3usf

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) September 29, 2014

In fact, it appears the fence-jumper actually signed three bills into law before the Secret Service caught up http://t.co/gdmNMO3usf

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) September 29, 2014

Talk about bad optics, huh?

Smartest admin in history.. Completely caught off guard by everything… Economy, terrorists, fence jumping lunatics.

All in: White House dopes still giving ‘piece’ a chance [pics]

Amazingly, after 4 hrs, this typo is still up – MT @WhiteHouse: #GetCovered because

It’s been 16 hours since our “betters” at the White House tweeted an image urging you to “#GetCovered because it’ll give your mom piece of mind.”

Piece.

The tweet is still up and the White House Twitter account has not acknowledged the error.

https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/411231710227857409

We hope they didn’t print too many jerseys with that message. But who are we to mock? The White House clearly knows “the smart thing to do.”

‘Tone-deaf mendacity’: Lying WH invokes Christmas in outrageous O-care tweet

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/408283777132003328

You couldn’t make this stuff up. As the pernicious Obamacare sinkhole continues to expand, taking more and more Americans down with it, the White House had the nerve to tweet this this afternoon:

http://twitter.com/#!/WhiteHouse/status/408282617327259648

Unbe-freaking-lievable.

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/408283386256424960
http://twitter.com/#!/hboulware/status/408286063837212673

Seriously — what fresh hell is this?

http://twitter.com/#!/gabrielmalor/status/408288099161346048

To say that the Obama White House lacks self-awareness is to be generous. It really seems more and more like we’re dealing with a malicious administration that doesn’t give a second thought to lying through its rotten teeth.

Team Obama knew from the start that Americans would be losing their health insurance due to Obamacare. And even now, the White House is unwilling to admit that the number of people screwed is much, much higher than one million.

http://twitter.com/#!/chuck_dizzle/status/408284525974650881

Silence from the White House about that.

We’ll close with a flashback:

http://twitter.com/#!/bccohan/status/408286191000514561

Oh, we remember.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with additional tweets. Additionally, clarification was added to reflect that millions of Americans are losing their current health care coverage.
