April 24, 2006 - A former CIA officer who was sacked last week after allegedly confessing to leaking secrets has denied she was the source of a controversial Washington Post story about alleged CIA secret detention operations in Eastern Europe, a friend of the operative told NEWSWEEK.
The fired official, Mary O. McCarthy, categorically denies being the source of the leak, one of McCarthys friends and former colleagues, Rand Beers, said Monday after speaking to McCarthy. Beers said he could not elaborate on this denial and McCarthy herself did not respond to a request for comment left by NEWSWEEK on her home answering machine. A national security advisor to Democratic Party candidate John Kerry during the 2004 presidential campaign, Beers worked as the head of intelligence programs on President Bill Clintons National Security Council staff and later served as a top deputy on counter-terrorism for President Bush in 2002 and 2003. McCarthy, a career CIA analyst, initially worked as a deputy to Beers on the NSC and later took over Beers role as the Clinton NSCs top intelligence expert.

Yeah, and Clinton never had sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.
Oh Yeah, I believe her. I fail lie detector tests all the time. lolol
The media frenzy may now commence.
Now it gets messy and political.
Let the mud fly!
It sickens me the way the leftists/ democrats twist everything. And that we have no one authoritative to put them straight in their place. Your head has to spin after reading this article. Can't someone come out and say the CIA's job is to keep secrets, not play footsie with the press, period?
The bias of the MSM is beyond imagination anymore - This lady seems to have clearly leaked information with no authority whatsoever to do so.
Mr. Libby situation is one of being completely different (for a host of reasons) yet the MSM hight-light one and defeat the other.
She should put her money where her mouth is. Sue to get her job back and we'll put her under oath, as well as getting a subpoena for Dana Priest (or whoever wrote the stories).
I wonder what the difference is between catagorically denying something and just denying it?
Does catagorically denying something mean your guilty of that which you deny?
Rand Beers? THAT'S who Newsweak went to to quote? Rand Beers was the guy McCarthy replaced at CIA!!! Then Beers went to wrk for the Kerry campaign. And Newsweak is owned by the WaPo, for which Preist works. You talk about incestuous!
She's not likely to publicly admit this, she's probably at risk of a prison sentence as things stand now. Hope so, traitor bitch!
She leaked classified information to a reporter about a story... but not THAT story!
Depends on what the definition is 'leak' is.
...I did it....no no..I deny doing it....I did it...no I didn't...no wonder she's a kerry supporter
And now? Well, we'll be treated to the most idiotic focus group nonsense in human history.
She signed a confession...end of story. Let the prosecution begin!
But no, it's a "communist party focus group"~~!!!
Guess that means that if Capitalism doesn't real win them over, Modern Marketing does!
Phew, glad that's cleared up.
