Jofi Joseph

It took the government a little more than two years to discover that one of their own, Jofi Joseph, a former director in the nonproliferation section of the National Security Council, had a “parody” Twitter account.  He used the Twitter handle @NatSecWonk to criticize government policies and bash his bosses, including President Barack Obama. Joseph was canned last week, and has since apologized.
