Did POTUS out CIA?"This morning, the President and Vice President met with their national security team and senior officials to hear updates on the draw down of our civilian personnel in Afghanistan, evacuations of SIV applicants and other Afghan allies, and the ongoing security situation in Kabul," the said.
However, it wasn't the tweet that is causing debate, but the photo attached. The image shows Biden sitting alone, in front of a large screen that had several other people on a video call. Visible in the call was Vice President Kamala Harris, as well as other members of the President's administration. They were all identified by the labels at the bottom. The labels indicated the State Department, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff all present. Unfortunately for Biden, also clearly visible was the CIA and 'Doha Station'.
The clear labeling, as well as their visible faces quickly led to a storm of controversy led by one user Joe Colangelo. He tweeted, "Did you seriously just out CIA and Doha Station? Beadwindow, Mr President." That led to a storm of controversy, with social media debating if Biden actually put the CIA at risk, but publicly identifying its agents. The controversy has only gained steam since, with multiple users piling on the criticism of Biden, at a tough time for the President.

'Wouldn't be the first time'Actually, if anyone remembers, Biden 'outed' SEAL Team 6 after they took down UBL:
"Incompetence abounds at every point of the compass, or so it would appear," one person commented. Another replied, "You’d think they would have taken this down the first time someone pointed all of the flaws in this pic. Not this administration though!" ANother noted, "Wouldn’t be the first time. Look what he did to Seal Team 6."
FLASHBACK: Joe Biden Outed Seal Team Six After Bin Laden RaidDid former Vice President Joe Biden publicly out members of SEAL Team Six after they successfully carried out the raid on a compound to kill al Qaeda leader Osama bid-Laden?
The short answer: yes.
President Donald Trump announced on Sunday morning that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead after a successful U.S. military raid.
Three months after the raid in 2011, three members of the unit were among 38 killed in a Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
Twenty-five of the dead were special operations forces.
“Shortly after that successful raid on bin Laden, the president – through the vice president for political purposes – released the name of SEAL Team Six. That’s classified information, and even (then) Defense Secretary Robert Gates was critical of that. So that was like putting a target on the backs of the sons of my clients,” said Larry Klayman, the attorney represented three of the families who lost their sons.
Klayman argued the helicopter may have been infiltrated by the Taliban before the crash because the Afghans on board were last-minute changes from the names on the original flight manifest.
Klayman said Biden deserves special blame for these deaths.
