CIA Comes Clean About Source of Leaks

(LOS ANGELES) -- Under pressure from both houses of Congress as well as the White House, the Central Intelligence Agency has finally come clean about a series of damaging leaks from within the hallowed halls of the CIA.
CIA spokesman Ted Geist told reporters at CIA headquarters late Tuesday that an internal investigation had traced leaks ranging from the outing of covert agent Valerie Plame to the revelation of secret prisons to a single undercover operative known only by the codename "Ginger" which he said was short for "Virginia," the state where the spy agency is located. In a rare departure from protocol, the CIA has posted a photo of the rogue agent at its website. "We've identified the source of these damaging leaks once and for all," Geist said. "Making this turncoat's identity known will send a signal that such breaches of security will not be tolerated."
