It seems the CIA had a secret website that was used to communicate with confidential sources (ie, spies) compromised repeatedly during 2009-2013. The actors: Iran (first), then China, possibly Russia. The compromise resulted in the deaths of at least two dozen sources in China alone, possibly as many as 30.
I'd like to say it's crazy we are only finding out about this now, but well, it is intelligence stuff and even the failures are legitimately hidden for as long as possible. However, it's yet another black eye on the supposedly scandal-free Obama administration in general.
And it does raise the interesting question -- were there more reasons that the obvious that Obama was desperate to negotiate a deal with Iran? Did they roll up our networks and prevent us from monitoring and interfering with their nuclear program?
