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."
Yeah, I hate it too. They claim to be "fair and balanced" but they're as kooky as the entire left-winged moonbat movement.
About halfway down (caps mine)............
After only one year on the job Wilson decided to retire and go into the private sector because "we wanted to have kids, and felt that it had become very difficult ot live off two government salaries." He set up a consultancy, J. C. Wilson headquarters of the Rock Creek Corporation AN INVESTMENT FIRM OF WHICH LITTLE IS KNOWN. Wilson'g right-wing critics have been quick to dondemn the affiliation as "musk," though Wilson does not work for Rock Creek and merely rents space and facilities there.
'I HAVE A NUMBER OF CLIENTS, AND BASICALLY WE HELP THEM WITH THEIR SORT OF INVESTMENTS IN COUNTRIES LIKE NIGER," explains Wilson. "Niger was of some interest because it has some gold deposits coming onstream. WE HAD SOME CLIENTS WHO WERE INTERESTED IN GOLD.... We were looking to set up a gond-mine company out of London."
I had this saved from looking into Wilson when the Plame thing broke. I never felt right about this as gold mines can produce uranium. fwiw
You think so?
"I want to know the REASON for not arresting her on the spot .. and allowing her to be marched out .. free to leave .. any clues???"
Perhaps she offered to spill her guts about everyone involved and work for the investigation?
I hope they grabbed every home computer in their house though.
Your ARSE it is, madam or sir. You offer no proof. Using your logic, honor is due any anti-Bush (or anti-Republican) leaker, and screw the United States of America.
Actually, I am relieved they merely changed the link.
"IF it comes out she's involved with Clintonistas, can we say bye bye Hillary?"
So, I guess we can speculate that she blabbed to others too?
If this wasn't so serious I'd be LMAO because her last name's McCarthy.
Smacks of some sort of a deal, doesn't it?
One has to wonder why he wasn't charged with a CRIME!

"...marched her out the door."
As in frog-marched? Who carried her box of stuff?
I was struck by the same thing: common Africa connections:
Mary McCarthy: ... began her government service as an analyst, then manager, in CIA's Directorate of Intelligence, holding positions in both African and Latin American analysis. [I think this was 1984 to 1991].
1991 to 2001: National Security Council
Joe Wilson: U.S. Ambassador to the [African ]Gabonese Republic 1992 to 1995...
Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for African Affairs at the National Security Council from June 1997 until July 1998
Am I reading this right?! They served on the NSC together with the same portfolio (Africa)?! And she was the CIA's Africa analyst at the time ole Joe was down there?!
Oh yeah...I'm thinking so.
Going to turn Greta on- maybe she'll have Bill Gertz - I haven't seen her show in months.
