Gov't Blows Cover of Afghan CIA Chief

Proofread everything before you hit print. Or release it to some of the biggest news media agencies in the country. On Saturday, the White House accidentally revealed the name of the top CIA official in Afghanistan due to an error in a media release given to multiple news organizations. The individual was listed as “Chief of Station,” which means highest-ranking spy in a country. Although the White House quickly re-issued a new media release without the individual's name, now that his cover is blown, he and his family could be at risk. As a result, news organizations are currently withholding his name for his protection. Way to go, White House.
