In an article published Friday, The New York Times outed the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) top spy overseeing the organization’s efforts in Iran. The paper justified its outing of the undercover CIA spy and his role within the agency by saying it was necessary since the agent is “leading an important new administration initiative against Iran.”
Yes. That really happened.
The MSM is completely out of control, they've pretty much become a quasi-government within themselves, due to their platform, reach, and influence over all individuals, corporations and even country's. These papers and networks subverting the law just need to be completely shut down, let the local news and the independent web based outlets handle the task of informing the people of what they need to know.... which is pretty much the way it already going.

I don't know how I feel about this - a known elitist propaganda rag outs a warpig.
Do I G.A.F?
Not really, but it would be good to watch with popcorn and beer.
Here's the thing.
We the people should have some idea what the CIA is up to. We can't trust the government to tell us, regardless of which party is in the WH.

If the public is aware of what they do, seriously what is the point of the organization then?

Sounds like trolling so then liberal fanatics can scream forever about Trump waging a war on the press. If only Trump could even compete with Obama's war on the press / whistleblowers. He'd have to work tirelessly on it to do so.
A wide-sweeping story on the CIA’s drone programme and its deep congressional support in Washington has made waves, after the New York Times named top officials linked with the operation – despite requests the agency that it not do so.
At the centre of the story was former counter-terrorism chief Michael D’Andrea. Mr D’Andrea, in addition to overseeing the growth of the drone programme, was also heavily influential in the creation of the agency’s detention and interrogation operations.
He also married a Muslim woman he met abroad, prompting his conversion to Islam. Colleagues said he doesn’t shy away from mentioning his religion but is not demonstrably observant. There is no prayer rug in his office, officials said, although he is known to clutch a strand of prayer beads.
Roger was not part of the first wave of CIA operatives deployed after the Sept. 11 attacks, and he never served in any of the agency’s “black sites,” where al-Qaeda prisoners were held and subjected to harsh interrogation techniques.
But in subsequent years, he was given a series of high-profile assignments, including chief of operations for the CTC, chief of station in Cairo, and the top agency post in Baghdad at the height of the Iraq war.
