Posted on Apr 21, 2006
Andrea Mitchell reports on the firing of a CIA official who allegedly leaked information to the press.
The CIA has fired an agent who allegedly leaked information about secret CIA prisons in Eastern Europe to The Washington Post, reports MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. Fox News has more.
Andrea Mitchell just reported that the CIA has fired an agent who failed a polygraph and admitted leaking classified information to Dana Priest of the Washington Post…
Priest won a Pulitzer Prize for: “Dana Priest won the beat reporting award for revealing that the CIA was using secret prisons in Eastern Europe to interrogate terrorism suspects.”
Andrea says that it also has been referred to the Justice Dept for possible criminal action.
Mitchell’s being told about the firing actually violated Porter Goss’s order within the CIA not to leak. Go figure. This definitely will have huge ramifications…
