“C.I.A. Fires Senior Officer Over Leaks,” by David Johnston and Scott Shane, New York Times, 22 April 2006, http://www.nytimes.com/2006/04/22/washington/22leak.html (from Just One Minute, hat-tip to Larwyn).
During the run-up to the Iraq War, remember how the neocons kept claiming that the Central Intelligence Agency and the State Department are subverting our elected government.
Well, they were right.
And surprise, surprise, the latest ne’er-do-well is a Kerry supporter.
The Central Intelligence Agency has dismissed a senior career officer for disclosing classified information to reporters, including material for Pulitzer Prize-winning articles in The Washington Post about the agency’s secret overseas prisons for terror suspects, intelligence officials said Friday.
And from the blogs:
The Times notes that Ms. McCarthy made the max $2,000 contribution to John Kerry in 2004, but so did Sue; what the Times missed (but Rick didn’t) is that Ms. McCarthy also appears to have given $500 to the DNC in 2004. Ghostcat found a $2,000 contribution to Kerry from the presumed hubby, Michael J McCarthy; and I have found a $5,000 contribution to the Ohio democratic party in 2004…
That senior security officials are breaking the law to prevent stymie democratic government’s actions would be disturbing in any country. It was disturbing when it happened in France, it’s was disturbing when it almost happened in Taiwan, it’s disturbing that it’s happening now.
Like Taiwan with their KMT, America is lucky than the leadership of her opposition, the Democrat Party, isn’t actively treasonous. The KMT turned down potential military backing to overthrow the elected President, just as John Kerry dismissed Sandy Berger.
Still, Democrats should be ashamed that so many in their party are working against our government, our interests, and our war.
