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."

If you notice the date of the donation to the Ohio Democrat Party, it is just before the election when the polls were showing that it was going to be close. Since the Secretary of State was Ken Blackwell they knew they could not cheat to win.

The Ohio contribution in October 2004 makes sense. Ohio was a battleground state and very much in play. Kerry was making an all out effort to win there. They [Ohio Dem Party] needed the money. I wonder what kind of personal connection she had to Kerry then or was it thru Beers and Wilson. That's a lot of money for a career USG bureaucrat to donate, especially in the last throes of the campaign.

Good .. and did their argument carry the day? Or will it be in the hands of the Supremes eventually?

Does Marc Rich do any trading in gold unranium or yellowcake? His business is comodities, yes?

He owes a big debt of gratitude to the Clintonista's.

And it would only be ironic justice that they would use Rich's $$$ to captpure Libby in an indictment sweep.

I'd like to know why these so-called investigative reporters have done nothing to help their country like gathering sources to help smoke OBL out?

They used to do alot of reporting from that area, and I'll bet if a Dem becomes Pres, they will jump to the job of helping to find him.

Oh, BTW, Schieffer has Batiste on FTN Sunday. I emailed Bob and asked him if he had the intestinal fortitude to ask General backstabber why he sent men and women into battle under what he thought was a flawed plan (a plan he thought would needlessly get people killed). Then asked him if he had the intestinal fortitude to follow up that question with a request for an apology to the husbands, wives, parents and children of those war fighters.

Off topic Warning to CIA/McCarthy readers.

This pretty much what I said April 16th. IOTW, I agree with Krauthammer

"Yawn, since when is Pat a military expert? I'll stand by Rumsfeld any day. Bush and his administration were elected. Live with that Generals. The US is NOT a banana republic so for goodness sakes behave accordingly."

MSM and the "Generals" were not elected November 2004. And considering the decrease in revenues the NYT and the Tribune are experiencing I believe one can say that the MSM is in the process of being fired.

I can't hold my eyes open any longer. So I'm bookmarking for the morning.

A humble and grateful 'thank you' to you all for the ground you've pounded today.

It just made the top of page 1, NY Times.

Eventually, the pillow biters at the NYT will treat this as proof positive that "BushCo" is trying to shut down and lock up the "free press" as well as everyone else they don't like. They'll officiallly declare that Bush does indeed equal Hitler and will launch an all out assault.

But right now, it seems that they just can't help themselves but to take a few shots at the Compost.

It's even tighter than that between Beers and Clarke - I recall there was a passage in Clarke's vile book in which it was clear they were very close personal friends, not merely colleagues - when Clarke quit the NSC the very first thing he did was go over to visit his buddy Rand Beers at home and commiserate together about how awful the Bush administration is - then Beers became the head of the foreign policy team for the Kerry campaign and Clarke soon went on to launch his jihad against the Bush WH (conveniently forgetting everything he could about the gross failings of the Clinton WH on counter-terrorism).

btw, Clarke, Beers, and Mary McCarthy were three of the top counter-terrorism officials in the country, all in the NSC, in the period 1999-2001. It can truly and fairly be said that the 9/11 plots developed on THEIR watch and that THEIR failings had more to do with it than anyone in the Bush team who'd only had a few months in office and had to deal with the (then) Democratic Senate not confirming important national security appointees, etc.
