CIA seeks probe of White House
MSNBC reports that the CIA has asked the Justice Department to investigate allegations that the White House broke federal laws by revealing the identity of one of its undercover employees in retaliation against the woman’s husband, Joseph Wilson. Wilson, a former ambassador, publicly criticized the lying fratboy's claim that Iraq had sought weapons-grade uranium from Africa.
The CIA has asked Jesus John Ashcraft's Justice Department to investigate whether White House officials blew Valerie Plame’s cover in retaliation against Wilson. Revealing the identities of covert officials is a violation of two laws, the National Agents’ Identity Act and the Unauthorized Release of Classified Information Act.
