Commenting on the breaking news on the CIA leak investigation, Melissa Mahle appeared on MSNBC Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
Through her lawyer, CIA officer Mary McCarthy has denied being the leaker of information to Dana Priest of The Washington Post on CIA secret prisons in Europe. Mahle noted the CIA has been conducting a targeted investigation of employees with unauthorized contact with the media. According to press statements, Ms. McCarthy has admitted to unauthorized contacts with Dana Priest, but denies providing classified information. Mahle noted, D/CIA Goss has been fixated on leaks from the first day he arrived, making officers feel he is on a witch hut. More evidence will need to emerge to connect Ms. McCarthy to the secret prison leak.
