    WASHINGTON - In a rare occurrence, the CIA fired an officer who acknowledged giving classified information to a reporter, NBC News learned Friday. 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 CIA’s rumored secret prisons in Eastern Europe, sources told NBC. The information was...

    The retirement of Richard Clarke is appropriate to the reality of the war on terror. Years ago, Clarke bet his national security career on the idea that electronic war was going to be real war. He lost, because as al Qaeda and Iraq have shown, real action is still of the blood and guts kind. In happier times prior to 9/11, Clarke -- as Bill Clinton's counter-terror point man in the National Security Council -- devoted great effort to convincing national movers and shakers that cyberattack was the coming thing. While ostensibly involved in preparations for bioterrorism and trying to...

    Joseph C. Wilson, the Clintonite who is at the bottom of the current flap regarding the leak of his wife’s name as a CIA "operative,” tried to contribute to more money to the Gore campaign than was legally allowed. Documents from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) reviewed by NewsMax.com indicate Joseph C. Wilson of Washington, D.C., whose occupation is listed as "Strategic Adviser,” sent $2,000 to the Gore, 2000 Committee in March of 1999, with $1,000 returned to him the following month because he had exceeded the legal limit. This from a man who has been lecturing the Bush...

    WASHINGTON – Though the Homeland Security Department has not terminated a high-ranking department official accused of resume fraud, sources say she's been denied the security clearance she needs to perform her job. Laura Callahan, the department's deputy chief information officer, was placed on paid leave in June while officials investigate her academic credentials. The advanced degrees she lists on her resume are from a diploma mill. Callahan's assistant, Jim Shepard, says she is still out on leave and has not been fired. However, sources say she was denied Top Secret clearance and is appealing the decision. Callahan's lawyer did not...

    So long, Jack Charles L. "Jack" Pritchard dropped one on the Bush administration this week by quitting his job as special envoy on North Korea to join the liberal Brookings Institution, days before the next round of talks on the North Korean nuclear dispute. The implicit message in the abrupt departure was that Mr. Pritchard disagreed with the current policy. The special envoy was viewed within the administration as a "Clintonista" who favored the former president's appeasement approach to North Korea. He even went on the now-infamous October 2000 visit to North Korea by Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright,...

    Transportation honcho relieved of personnel-security duties Clinton holdover no longer in charge of vetting airport checkpoint screeners WASHINGTON – In response to public criticism, and a sign of more chaos at a key agency in charge of protecting airline passengers from future terrorism, the Transportation Department has relieved a top official with a checkered record in federal security of a critical assignment investigating the backgrounds of new federal airport guards. WorldNetDaily first reported April 24 that the official – K. David Holmes Jr. – had a reputation for "rubberstamping" applicants for key jobs, some demanding Top Secret clearance, as Commerce...
