Achilles Heel

In other news, House Oversight Witch Hunter Darrel Issa compromised the identity of Libyans working for the U.S. when he released un-redacted State Department cables yesterday.

Issa didn’t bother to redact the names of Libyan civilians and local leaders mentioned in the cables, and just as with the WikiLeaks dump of State Department cables last year, the administration says that Issa has done damage to U.S. efforts to work with those Libyans and exposed them to physical danger from the very groups that had an interest in attacking the U.S. consulate. […]

One of the cables released by Issa names a woman human rights activist who was leading a campaign against violence and was detained in Benghazi. She expressed fear for her safety to U.S. officials and criticized the Libyan government. […]

Another cable names a Benghazi port manager who is working with the United States on an infrastructure project. […]

One cable names a local militia commander dishing dirt on the inner workings of the Libyan Interior Ministry. Another cable names a militia commander who claims to control a senior official of the Libyan armed forces. Other cables contain details of conversations between third-party governments, such as the British and the Danes, and their private interactions with the U.S., the U.N., and the Libyan governments over security issues.

Lesson learned — if you choose to work with America, Darrell Issa (R) will sell you out to the enemy just to score a quick political point.

Darrell Issa should be forced to resign.
