BOMBSHELL: The Brits Did It

T'was only a week ago that the media was aflutter with news that a “CIA double-agent” had thwarted the use of a new type of underwear bomb in attacking U.S. arilines.

Well, turns out the double-agent was recruited and run by British intelligence, NOT American intelligence. And the reason we didn’t hear much about it was because the story got buried by breaking news(!). The news? America's Commander-in-Chief chose to announce he’d “evolved” or rather changed his views on gay marriage.

Admittedly, we found it curious that after the plot was revealed (leaked), Obama & co. exhibited relative restraint in self-adulation (in stark contrast to the bin Laden killing), but we attributed the newfound humility to misguided priorities and politics.

Now the facts are dribbling out (see sordid details below). And they're showing the only role played by the Obama administration was that of blabbermouth, betrayer, snitch, leaker or anything else you'd call an administration that betrays allies, exhibits reckless disregard for the lives of others, and puts politics ahead of national security. 

As someone very wise once said: “Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results [preferably, your own], not attributes.”

BOMBSHELL: Al-Qaeda Infiltrator was Working for Brits not CIA, Cover Blown for Election Year Politics

Just a week ago the establishment media was aflutter with news that a CIA double-agent had thwarted a new type of underwear bomb attack targeting U.S. flights in a plot devised by al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula.

But as the week progressed, a developing bombshell story got buried under President Obama's gay marriage announcement. Not only is the supposed CIA asset not a CIA asset at all, but the entire operation was exposed prematurely and the double-agent's life was immediately threatened by an intelligence leak that very well may have come out of the White House for political gain.

As the story broke, the establishment media was more than happy to attribute the intelligence coup to the CIA and the Obama administration, describing the mole as a "CIA informant."

It turns out that wasn't true. The double-agent hadn't been recruited and placed by the CIA, but by British intelligence, who also managed the operation. In fact, the Americans had only recently been made aware of the joint British-Saudi effort.

The leaks about the operation from the American side have infuriated British intelligence officials, who had hoped to continue the operation. The leaks not only scuttled the mission but put the life of the asset in jeopardy. Even CIA officials, joining their MI5 and MI6 counterparts, were describing the leaks as "despicable," attributing them to the Obama administration.

As the stillborn investigation into the leaks continues (stillborn, because if the leaks are in fact traced to the White House, there will be no repercussions), the zeal with which the establishment media trumpeted the supposed CIA coup won't likely be surpassed by the more important story of how the Obama administration attempted to score political points at the expense of one of the most important intelligence operations since 9/11.

Nor is it likely that the establishment media, particularly the Associated Press stooges who broke the story, will examine its own role as handmaiden to the administration's scuttling of this sensitive intelligence operation for apparent political gain and betrayal of our foreign intelligence service partners.

Leaks like this cause our intelligence partners and future sources to think twice about sharing secrets. We must hold those who leaked this information accountable for their gross negligence, or we will continue to have further intelligence "lapses" and inaccurate information.
