Remember how Dick Cheny outed Valerie Plame and in the process hurt our efforts to prevent Iran from getting nukes?
And since then, Iran has just been working away, allegedly, to get nukes?
Well, at a time when much of the national security establishment is drumming up war against Iran, they’ve done it again.
A senior CIA analyst resigned Tuesday amid accounts that she had been pressured to step down after her husband — a former agency employee — was charged with leaking classified information to the press.
Heather Kiriakou had served as a top analyst on some of the most sensitive subjects that the agency tracks, including leadership developments in Iran. Her husband, John, faces a maximum of 30 years in prison after being accused of disclosing details about secret CIA operations as well as the identities of undercover officers.
Two sources in direct contact with the Kiriakous said that Heather had submitted her resignation under pressure from superiors at the CIA.
Or maybe that’s the whole point.
