The Obama administration intentionally shared classified intelligence with Russia less than a year ago – and blew the cover off of our CIA station chief in Afghanistan before that – yet Obama was given a pass.

In comparison, President Trump reached out to the Russians, who were actively attacking a mutual enemy of the US and Russia, and gave them information helpful in taking out the enemy and keeping US forces safe, and that’s considered bad.  How?

President Obama and Sectary of State Hillary Clinton were notorious for playing fast and loose with important US intelligence, and it’s arguable that they didn’t always have the best interests of the US in mind when they did.

In this Washington Post report from 2014, it seemed to be flat out incompetence:

“The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops.

The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list that did not include the individual, who had been identified on the initial release as the “Chief of Station” in Kabul, a designation used by the CIA for its highest-ranking spy in a country.

The disclosure marked a rare instance in which a CIA officer working overseas had his cover — the secrecy meant to protect his actual identity — pierced by his own government. The only other recent case came under significantly different circumstances, when former CIA operative Valerie Plame was exposed as officials of the George W. Bush administration sought to discredit her husband, a former ambassador and fierce critic of the decision to invade Iraq.

The Post is withholding the name of the CIA officer at the request of Obama administration officials who warned that the officer and his family could be at risk if the name were published. The CIA and the White House declined to comment.

The CIA officer was one of 15 senior U.S. officials identified as taking part in a military briefing for Obama at Bagram air base, a sprawling military compound north of Kabul. Others included U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan James B. Cunningham and Marine Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., the commander of U.S. and coalition forces in the country.”

This wasn’t just a ‘dumb mistake’, this could have (and still may) cost this man and his family their lives.  Yet, the media just glosses it over as a “small, little mistake.”

Even last year the Obama Administration did the same thing as President Trump when they offered to share information to keep US and Russian forces safe.

Again, from the Washington Post in 2016:

“The Obama administration has offered to help Russia improve its targeting of terrorist groups in Syria if Moscow will stop bombing civilians and opposition fighters who have signed on to a cease-fire and use its influence to force Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to do the same.

The offer early this week of what one administration official called “enhanced information sharing” does not include joint military planning, targeting or coordination with U.S. airstrikes or other operations in Syria.

But it would expand cooperation beyond the “deconfliction” talks the U.S. and Russian militaries began last year to ensure their planes do not run into each other in Syria’s increasingly crowded airspace.”

But the media attacks the Trump administration for the continuation of a sound policy decision designed to keep two Super Powers from getting into a major conflict.  In short, it’s the same policy, just a different administration.

Looks like someone is playing favorites.
