As previously discussed at Seeing the Forest, a Kos diary today, TreasonGate: The little-discussed ace in the hole asks if a CIA agent was killed as a result of the White House leak of the identity of an undercover CIA agent,
Wayne Madsen, a reporter and former NSA employee, has claimed, “CIA sources report that at least one anonymous star placed on the CIA’s Wall of Honor at its Langley, Virginia headquarters is a clandestine agent who was executed in a hostile foreign nation as a direct result of the White House leak.”
I think the title of this Kos diary is unfortunate, and some of the tone. We’re talking about a government that has caused possible loss of life, damage to our country and our safety, not about some political “us vs them” game. But it is possible that one reason the prosecutor is taking this so seriously is that the leak very well could have led to loss of life.
It’s a good question for the daily White House briefing, “Were any agents or sources killed as a result of the leak?”
