CIA Traitor Fired for Intel Leak

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The CIA said on Friday that it fired an intelligence officer for leaking classified information that sources said contributed to a Washington Post report about secret CIA prisons in Eastern Europe.

The CIA said the dismissal of a CIA officer over a media leak was extremely rare and resulted from a three-month-old in-house investigation aimed at agency operations that had been the subject of recent media leaks. "This CIA officer acknowledged having unauthorized discussions with the media in which the officer knowingly shared classified intelligence, including operational information," CIA spokeswoman Michele Neff said.

Finally! With the rabid press scrounging around for stories they can use to attack the President, the best thing our Intel services can do is take this type of leak seriously. If you recall, this had to do with the disclosing of the so-called “Black Sites” inside Europe that housed suspected terrorists. A very reasonable thing in terms of a covert operation designed to aid in the tracking and killing of terrorists around the world. You might recall that this story broke during the heated debate over the Valerie Plame incident during which time the Democrats shamelessly attempted to capitalize on the phony story. At that time I wrote, "Is it not hypocrisy for a newspaper to illegally reveal a covert operation and have no Democrats crying about it? The Washington Post put America in danger by selfishly revealing the fact that the CIA has prison facilities [Black Sites] stationed in certain areas inside Europe. The left has been more than eager to use this ousted secret CIA operation to try to damage the Administration. Valerie Plame was claimed to be endangered but when the military and the CIA are actually in danger, unlike the Plame incident, they are perfectly fine with it. In fact they are so fine with this; they use it as a basis for an anti-military, anti-American onslaught. I find it amazingly hypocritical that people are reveling in the outing of a secret CIA operation while at the same time loathing the Valerie Plame “leak” case."

And after the Justice Department announced it was going to investigate the leak in December I wrote, "I’m sure the far left in this country are excited about the Justice Department beginning its investigation of who leaked vital National Security information to the Wash. Post. We saw their feigned outrage over the leaking of the name of Valerie Plame to Robert Novak, so now we’re sure to see their outrage at this obviously more important Intelligence leak… Well, at least if the Democratic Party was truthful, we would see it. I have yet to hear the Democrats yell and whine about the illegal outing of secret prisons in Europe and the ousting of classified information on CIA plane routes transporting terrorist suspects. You heard them claim that releasing Valerie Plame’s CIA status put her and the CIA in danger. Why haven’t we heard them yelling about how giving our terrorist enemy vital information like prison facilities and plane routes, puts the CIA and our military in danger? Why the silence when the New York Times releases an illegal leak that clearly damages our National Security. Why the fake outrage with the Valerie Plame case and the silence when the CIA and the American people are truly endangered?"

So now the Democrats have a chance to prove they are not the party that constantly hurts our country for political gain. All they have to do is apologize for being hypocrites and then praise the CIA for firing the individual that caused great harm to our country. And after that all they have to do is condemn the Democratic Party as a whole, including the Washington Post and the New York Times, for purposely hurting our country to launch partisan attacks on the current Administration.
