CIA Fires Its “European Prisons” Leaker

Our one party media strikes again. Here they try to sneak out this story on a late Friday afternoon.

Note this remarkably uninformative report from the DNC’s Associated Press:

CIA Fires Officer For Leaking Classified Info

April 21, 2006

WASHINGTON — The CIA said Friday that it has fired an employee for leaking classified information to reporters.

An agency spokesman said the officer was fired for having unauthorized contacts with the media and disclosing classified information — including details about intelligence operations.

The CIA said the leak violated a security agreement that was signed as a condition of agency employment.

Because of the Privacy Act, the agency wouldn’t disclose the officer’s identity. It was not immediately clear whether the person faces prosecution.

In actuality it would appear that these leaks were to Dana Priest of the Washington Post, who then won a Pulitzer for her "CIA Gulags" stories.

Which turned out to be untrue.

Also from the DNC’s Associated Press:

EU official: No evidence of illegal CIA action

Antiterror chief advises committee

By Jan Silva, Associated Press | April 21, 2006

BRUSSELS — Investigations into reports that US agents shipped prisoners through European airports to secret detention centers have produced no evidence of illegal CIA activities, the European Union’s antiterrorism coordinator said yesterday.

The investigations also have not turned up any proof of secret renditions of terror suspects on EU territory,

Gijs de Vries told a European Parliament committee investigating the allegations.

The European Parliament’s probe and a similar one by the continent’s leading human rights watchdog are looking into whether US intelligence agents interrogated Al Qaeda suspects at secret prisons in Eastern Europe and transported some on secret flights through Europe.

But so far investigators have not identified any human rights violations, despite more than 50 hours of testimony by human rights activists and individuals who said they were abducted by US intelligence agents, de Vries said.

”We’ve heard all kinds of allegations, impressions; we’ve heard also refutations. It’s up to your committee to weigh if they are true. It does not appear to be proven beyond reasonable doubt," he said. ” There has not been, to my knowledge, evidence that these illegal renditions have taken place."…

But what the heck. Once again the Democrats, their lickspittle media, and the rest of the Hate America crowd got this lie firmly implanted in everyone’s mind as fact.

That’s their job.

The Washington Post’s Dana Priest received the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for beat reporting "for her persistent, painstaking reports on secret ‘black site’ prisons and other controversial features of the government’s counterterrorism campaign."

They even give out Pulitzers for doing it.
