CIA leak caught

Good. It's about time they stopped up the unauthorized leaks to the media coming out of the government. I'm tired of hearing "unnamed sources" being cited as unbiased fountains of truth.

WASHINGTON — A CIA officer has been relieved of his duty after being caught leaking classified information to the media.

Citing the Privacy Act, the CIA would not provide any details about the officer's identity or assignments. It was not immediately clear if the person would face prosecution. The firing is a highly unusual move, although there has been an ongoing investigation into leaks in the CIA.

Now they just need to prosecute him. Nail him to the wall. Giving classified info to the press is not his job.
