Skip to comments.CIA officer fired after admitting leak, (Mary McCarthy named in this article)
Posted on 04/22/2006 8:32:31 AM PDT by Grampa Dave
The officer flunked a polygraph exam before being fired on Thursday and is now under investigation by the Justice Department, NBC has learned.
Intelligence sources tell NBC News the accused officer, Mary McCarthy, worked in the CIA's inspector general's office and had worked for the National Security Council under the Clinton and and George W. Bush administrations.
The leak pertained to stories on the CIAs rumored secret prisons in Eastern Europe, sources told NBC. The information was allegedly provided to Dana Priest of the Washington Post, who wrote about CIA prisons in November and was awarded a Pulitzer Prize on Monday for her reporting.
Sources said the CIA believes McCarthy had more than a dozen unauthorized contacts with Priest. Information about subjects other than the prisons may have been leaked as well.

The rat, who was fired, was not named until about reply 400.
This posting is to inform those who missed the original thread or never got through to find out who the rat/traitor was.
This information and detail is far too important to be buried in a great but long thread.
Since we have to excerpt articles from MSNBC, what is posted here is at best minimal. Please go to the article to read the whole story.
Admitting the leak? I thought she lied during her poly?
This is not to replace your great thread yesterday.
My intent is to name the fired official for those who may have missed your excellent thread or failed to gather her name.
Please ping the great contributors of your thread last night so they can add more detail to this one.
Lets not let this get buried on Free Republic.
Wait a minute, the EU just found "No evidence" of CIA prisons. The whole thing was a sham? Was this whole thing another "Get Bush" ploy run out of Langley?
This traitor babe is a first class Rat. She and the Sandy Burglar were a package for awhile, and I believe that she was big time contributor to Kerry.
I like see Andrea Mitchell's name on the byline of this story. I gotta believe this development puts a little fear in the heart of those who know the leakers in the CIA and who receive the leaks with glee.
I have go to Howlin's thread and back to the unexcerpted sections of this one before I can answer any questions.
Uh, how long before this witch starts claiming she was a principled whistleblower and she gets canonized by the Rats a la Cindy Sheehan?
Who knows on that one. Maybe that was a honey pot trap for the leakers by our new CIA Director.
It takes all kinds, I guess. But increasingly obvious is the fact that nobody in Washington can keep his/her mouths shut.
I hope the Justice Department is on top of all the leaks, including the leaks from the House and Senate.
Traitors are traitors no matter where they are found.
Mary McCarthy: Shame, shame!
"Was this whole thing another "Get Bush" ploy run out of Langley?" That'w what the perpetrators thought, however, what it was was a setup. They got fed bum data, which got traced back to them when the leaked it. Classic operational method in action. Might be one of several, see also the Plamegate story. Christians In Action went over to the dark side during the Xlinton years, now the purge has arrived, finally.
Andrea's name gives some power to this thread.
Not long. I've already heard some talking 'Rats heads saying exactly that.
On the plus side, one story says she was just a few months away from retirement. I guess she can kiss that goodbye. ;)
fyi and ping lists.
Want some more info?
That's all we needed to know. Actually, we've known it for a long time, since W lied to us about the Klintonites' vandalism to the White House. Sleep with the dogs...
"Uh, how long before this witch starts claiming she was a principled whistleblower and she gets canonized by the Rats a la Cindy Sheehan?"
She will probably be muzzled by the CIA sanctions and by her lawyers.
However, the MSM, which hates a strong America will be scream what you stated as a mantra, after they figure out how to do it.
Thanks for posting those great graphic arts.
And contrast Scooter Libby who was not only not guilty of leaking (only inconsistent testimony which is either lying or quite plausibly imperfect recollection), not only that, but also the underlying situation in no sense hurt national security.
