The New York Times published the name of a top CIA operative handling Iranian operations on Friday. The information was leaked by CIA agents who know he is still undercover and who said they were speaking under the condition of anonymity.
Together, they set this man up for execution, possibly considering that collateral damage.
We’ve chosen not to name the agent.
As The Federalist’s Bre Payton wrote: the paper’s real reason for outing **** who was depicted as a character known only as “The Wolf” in the film “Zero Dark Thirty,” is that he’s an Iran hawk likely to oppose the previous administration’s attempts to normalize the nation by giving it billions of dollars, trading it terrorists for hostages, and blessing its nuclear program.
The Times doesn’t want President Trump to reverse what their beloved former president has set up.
Known as Dark Prince, The Undertaker or Ayatollah Mike, he also led the drone program and oversaw the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
According to The Times they said they had the right to out the agent since they did so two years ago along with other news outlets. Of course, he wasn’t in the position he’s in now at the time.
This outed agent is obviously an agent who would be a prime target for assassination by those who hate us — Iranians and others – yet the New York Times posted his name anyway.
After posting the agent’s name, they wrote he has a new job in charge of “the C.I.A.’s Iran operations, according to current and former intelligence officials, an appointment that is the first major sign that the Trump administration is invoking the hard line the president took against Iran during his campaign”.
The Times wrote that the CIA and the CIA lawyer wouldn’t even name him. The way the article is written, it appears they are trying to set him up for execution.
The article describes the more “muscular” approach the Trump administration is using against Iran and suggests we might be looking to “strike militants”.
The article continues: The challenge to start carrying out President Trump’s views falls to Mr. *****, a chain-smoking convert to Islam, who comes with an outsize reputation and the track record to back it up: Perhaps no single C.I.A. official is more responsible for weakening Al Qaeda.
Throughout the article, they mention his name over-and-over, and give details about who he is. He grew up in Northern Virginia in a family whose ties to the C.I.A. span two generations. He met his wife, who is Muslim, on a C.I.A. posting overseas, and converted to Islam to marry her, though he is not known to be particularly observant.
As if the article didn’t do enough to set the agent up for execution, they added that he set up the 9/11 interrogation program and “tortured prisoners”, which was condemned in a Senate report in 2014 as “inhumane and ineffective”.
They added that Imad Mugniyah, the international operations chief for Hezbollah, was killed. under his direction. As if The Times hadn’t collected enough of the agent’s enemies, they said he ramped up the “drone program inside Pakistan” and in Yemen, throwing in for good measure that the role he took impaired Al Qaeda.
The Times made him a target of any number of terrorists.
The CIA has been leaking to The Times and The Washington Post non-stop. What people should know is that The Washington Post, WaPo, is owned by Jeff Bezos who also owns Amazon. Amazon never made much of a profit until they illicitly won the CIA contract to set up their cloud computing in 2012.
