White House Accidentally E-Mails Story On Iraqi PM Backing Obama Withdrawal Plan To Reporters

Huffington Post:

As Reuters reported earlier today, Iraqi Prime Minister al-Maliki has voiced his support for Obama’s withdrawal plan. Needless to say, such support is not a PR victory for the Bush administration. And so it was no doubt embarrassing when, according to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the White House sent the article–accidentally–to reporters:

The White House this afternoon accidentally sent to its extensive distribution list a Reuters story headlined “Iraqi PM backs Obama troop exit plan – magazine.” […}

The White House employee had intended to send the article to an internal distribution list, ABC News’ Martha Raddatz reports, but hit the wrong button.

The misfire comes at an odd time for Bush foreign policy, at a time when Obama’s campaign alleges the president is moving closer toward Obama’s recommendations about international relations — sending more U.S. troops to Afghanistan, discussing a “general time horizon” for U.S. troop withdrawal and launching talks with Iran.
