"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

CIA Leaker McCarthy Begins Damage Control

Newsweek is reporting former CIA officer Mary McCarthy who was fired last week after allegedly confessing to leaking secrets has denied she was the source of a controversial Washington Post story about alleged CIA secret detention operations in Eastern Europe. McCarthy's lawyer, Ty Cobb, told Newsweek this that contrary to public statements by the CIA late last week, McCarthy never confessed to agency interrogators that she had divulged classified information and "didn't even have access to the information" in The Washington Post story in question.
CIA spokesman Paul Gimigliano re-affirmed on Monday that an agency official had been fired after acknowledging “unauthorized contacts with the media and discussion of classified information” with journalists.
After some thought and legal counsel, Ms. McCarthy suddenly feels the prospect of retiring to a federal prison isn't too attractive. Is this part of the John Kerry, I did it before I didn't do it? Must be a liberal thing!
