Just breaking on Fox...
No details, but the agent was caught dead to rights leaking....
Update: CIA Officer Fired for Leaking Classified Info to Media
WASHINGTON A CIA officer has been relieved of his duty after being caught leaking classified information to the media.
CIA officials will not reveal the officer's name, assignment, or the information that was leaked. The firing is a highly unusual move, although there has been an ongoing investigation into leaks in the CIA.
One official called this a "damaging leak" that deals with operational information and said the fired officer "knowingly and willfully" leaked the information to the media and "was caught."
First of many FIREES bumps, I hope!
Rockin' good news!
This treasonous POS needs to be made an example. Leaks will stop with his last breath.
Fox doesnt know whether its related to any other leak story but the CIA has been suspected of leaking.
Fired??? How about PROSECUTED?????!!!!!!!
Wow, did you see BReaking News:
CIA officer Fired After Being Caught Leaking Classified Info to media. Fox News Alert!
CIA Fires Officer For Leaking Classified Information to Media
Whoever posted that other thread, we had it almost word for word.........LOL.
Firing is nice.. but what about being arrested?
I expect we'll get to see him publicly named and prosecuted, just like Scooter Libby?
I hope we don't have to wait too long for someone to leak who it was!
We can't prosecute them TODAY, okay?
Ya beat me by 17 seconds! ;o)
I heard it and I'd like to know who he was leaking to
Pray its The New York Times.
He did say it was logistical information (I think).
How about "fired at" instead?
Nice, pathetically nice!
That was amazing, wasn't it? LOL......at least we confirmed each other!
In the good ol' days, this would be handled with a silenced .22
I missed it. How odd!
Thanks for the ping, Howlin. This is good news.
I've noticed Senators Rockefeller and Durbin have been very quiet recently, also.
Oh, if these 2 clowns were in on it, TREASON
It was the quickest check on a story I've ever seen!
Why, pray tell, might we let the mere loss of a job suffice as punishment for treason? Methinks the punishment fitteth not the crime.
Cleaning out a rat's nest,, one rat at a time BumP!!!
Ah, our next DU hero!
I think the fact that it took 6 years for W to start making this happen is pretty pathetic.
Better late than never I guess.
Do you mean with wood and matches???
Meahwhile the 2nd dancer gets more press than this report.
Gotta love the leftist lamebrain mediaites,, the world could end right before their very eyes and they'd still be camped out at Duke. at least they moved on from crawford and a ditch. ;-)
got this from the dump
Andrea Mitchell MSNBC 12:00 p.m.
Officer accused of being source for Pulitzer prize-winning article (Dana Priest's article)
CIA OFFICER Acknowledges leaking classified information
Possible criminal charges
after failing polygraph test
No attempt to appeal this decision
Thanks for the ping....did they name what media the leak went to...like the NYTimes???
I suppose you think W's just been chewing tobacco all this time, throwing the soccer ball for Barney on the South Lawn, not caring about the leaks, content to let them keep threatening your and my and his nation's security, despite how stringently he treats leaks within his immediate purview?
One more down and 3500 to go.....
We darn sure BETTER!!!
And we aren't going to let them "forget" this like they have Barrett Report or Able Danger..
"This treasonous POS needs to be made an example. Leaks will stop with his last breath."
Nah. Nothing to excess, like the case of a Poliburo member who was treated from nightly incontinence with hypnosis. The treatment was so successful that after it he couldn't pass water even during daytime - and burst.
For this leaker, lobotomy will suffice.
This is the CIA tho. You are much kinder than I would be.
You mean this may be linked to Dana Priest?
I could have a REALLy good day if that is true.
Bill Bennett will be tickled pink.
From earlier today:
EU official: No evidence of illegal CIA action
BRUSSELS -- Investigations into reports that US agents shipped prisoners through European airports to secret detention centers have produced no evidence of illegal CIA activities, the European Union's antiterrorism coordinator said yesterday.
The "all or nothing" crowd drives me nuts.
"after failing polygraph test"
Meaning not only did he leak, he lied to federal investigators. He is in just a little pickle.
Do we know WHICH Dana Priest article???
I am desperately praying that Rockefeller is involved somehow!!!
