    outed the double agent was John Brennan, not the AP.

    AP reported that a bomb plot had been foiled.

    John Brennan told some counterterrorism experts that the public was never in any danger and that the US had "inside control" all the time, which is what outed the double agent.

    AP got the go ahead from the CIA that it was safe. Then the DoJ put them under investigation.

    John Brennan got promoted.

      We do not know who leaked this information  but we do know that it was counterproductive.

      And since when does the CIA ok burning an active ongoing asset? If you believe that then maybe you are a wingnut and you are making stuff up because the known facts conflict with your ideological agenda?

      Whatever the reason, shame on you for telling giant falsehoods.

      The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.

        This is undisputed fact.  Read the transcripts from Brennan's confirmation hearing.  He told Richard Clarke and Fran Townsend that we had "inside control" of the operation and Clarke, a career counterterrorism expert knew what that meant and reported it.

        Don't call me a liar. Everything I am saying is documented. Everything you are saying is based on wishful thinking,
