White House outs CIA official by mistake

(CNN) - The White House accidentally revealed the name of the CIA's top intelligence official in Afghanistan to some 6,000 journalists.

The identity was on a list of people attending a military briefing for President Barack Obama during his surprise visit to Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan on Sunday.

    Well, at least it wasn't done on purpose, like when Cheney outed a CIA agent out of revenge. He should be in prison for treason!

    So, do Republicans still believe that the White House could cover up evidence of a Benghazi coverup for two years?
