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."

I expect we'll get to see him publicly named and prosecuted, just like Scooter Libby?

Why, pray tell, might we let the mere loss of a job suffice as punishment for treason? Methinks the punishment fitteth not the crime.

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.

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.

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?

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.

"after failing polygraph test"

Meaning not only did he leak, he lied to federal investigators. He is in just a little pickle.
