More leakage info. Unlike the silly flap over the Rumsfeld memo leak, which some wingers tried to compare to the outing of Valerie Plame despite the fact that it wasn't even classified, this is another real one.
CIA Seeks Probe of Iraq-Al Qaeda Memo Leak (washingtonpost.com):
"The CIA will ask the Justice Department to investigate the leak of a 16-page classified Pentagon memo that listed and briefly described raw agency intelligence on any relationship between Saddam Hussein's Iraqi government and Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda terrorist network, according to congressional and administration sources.

In addition, the leaders of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Chairman Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) and Vice Chairman John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), are considering making their own request for a Justice investigation."

I haven't written anything about the Feith memo, as published by the Weekly Standard, because if there's much to it, it's A Big Deal and I wanted to wait until the dust settles a bit. Even if there's a fair bit of truth in it, though, I think it raises as many questions as it answers. But beyond that, here's an interesting question: Who's more likely to have leaked to the Weekly Standard, a Democrat on the Intelligence Committee or a neocon in Feith's Office of Special Plans?
