The revealing, occasionally hateful, formerly anonymous tweets of a White House insider

The author of the @natsecwonk Twitter account, a gossipy, often invective-laced anonymous Washington beat sheet, could have been a thousand people. The bio line: "A keen observer of of the foreign policy and national security scene. I'm abrasive and bring the snark. Unapologetically says what everyone else only thinks."

Maybe it was a journalist who covered the State Department, or a low-level contractor, or a disgruntled junior researcher at a think tank. It could even have been me (and one of its targets thought it was, for a while).

Turns out it was someone who really was in a position to dish.

The Daily Beast disclosed yesterday that @natsecwonk was the online ego of Jofi Joseph, 40, a senior director of non-proliferation policy on the National Security Staff.

"Joseph, ... portrays virtually all of his superiors as kiss-ass incompetents surrounded by sycophants."

I am absolutely shocked at this revelation...
