Was McCarthy's "Firing" Another Bush Administration Political Hit?

by Steve

Newsweek is reporting this afternoon that Mary McCarthy, the senior CIA analyst who was reportedly fired last week for supposedly leaking classified information to the Washington Post’s Dana Priest on the Agency’s illegal rendition and detention program, denies she was the source for that story. Furthermore, Newsweek is reporting that the source material for that story was available unclassified from other reporters as well.

Don’t be surprised if McCarthy’s firing last week was a political hit by this administration because she was a Kerry supporter and was a holdover from the Clinton Administration.
