+ - Twitter Leaks Obama's Visit To Afghanistan->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "When you're the President of the United States, sometimes certain activities you're involved in can be hard to keep secret — and yesterday was no exception, after Twitter let it slip that Obama was secretly in Kabul. On Tuesday, the White House released a fabricated itinerary — consisting of all-day meetings in the Oval Office to cover up the fact that Obama was secretly flying to Afghanistan. Whilst only a few US journalists were aware of this event, by mid-morning, a lot more people were suddenly in on the revelation courtesy of Twitter. The first tweet to let the virtual cat out of the bag was Afghanistan news site TOLOnews which reported: "United States President Barack Obama has arrived in Kabul to meet Afghan President Hamid Karzai." To the innocent public, it sounds like a great opportunity for the US President to become better acquainted with Afghanistan. To the not-so-innocent public? The perfect opportunity to launch a terrorist act."
