Bush administration Outs another intelligence agent for political reasons

In an effort to take credit for combating terror and to duck criticism about the latest round of years-old terror warnings, the Bush Administration leaked the name of Al-Qaeda mole Mohammad Naeem Noor Khan who was cooperating with Pakistani authorities in a sting operation against Al-Qaeda that has since gone sour because of the leak. The information was given to the New York Times by a White House official.
MSNBC reported Monday that the early exposure of Khan not only ended the sting that Pakistani intelligence was conducting, but it also forced Britain’s intelligence service to move faster than it wanted to last Tuesday to apprehend terror suspects in England that had been e-mailed by Khan. Five other suspects were able to escape before British authorities could arrest them.
Way to go guys. Dumbasses.
