CIA agent sues CIA for ruining his career

The critical mass toward Bush's demise keeps building...

A senior CIA analyst who was once decorated for his work on weapons proliferation in the Middle East is suing the CIA for ruining his career as punishment for his refusal to adhere to official pre-war dogma on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

The unnamed agent, a 22-year veteran of the CIA's counter-proliferation department, accuses his former supervisors of demanding that he alter his intelligence reporting on Iraq to conform to the views of CIA management.

This is the first time a CIA employee has publicly accused the agency of exerting pressure to produce reports that would help the Bush administration's case for war against Iraq.

Whomever the agent is, he's risking a lot more than his career now, because 1) his accusations will be almost impossible to prove, and 2) we're talking the CIA here—who knows how they'll retaliate against him this time?
