Obama Leak Attackers Turn Out To Be Talkers Themselves – Business Insider

Ken Dilanian of the LA Times gives further depth, reporting that Fred Rustmann, an OpSec member, CIA retiree and an outspoken Republican, appeared on the Hannity and Colmes show in 2005 in order to downplay the outing of a CIA covert operations officer Valerie Plame.

Disclosing the identification of a covert agent is a felony offense, and Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the “leaker” and chief of staff for Dick Cheney, went to jail, but then later had his sentence commuted by the Bush administration.

The repercussions of that leak were astronomical, not only putting Plame in danger, but all of her sources, her family, and every one of her information exchanges.

The extent of the damage done is so vast it’s become conjecture because we’ll never know the true cost of that incident.
