Sometimes these kinds of stories write themselves. With all of the leaks coming out of the NSA lately, the CIA, complete with new director John Brennan, has announced a program to stop leaks to reporters from within the CIA. And, wouldn't you know it, the program was almost immediately leaked to the Associated Press:
In a memo to the CIA workforce this week, Brennan says the "Honor the Oath," campaign is intended to "reinforce our corporate culture of secrecy" through education and training. The Associated Press obtained the memo Wednesday, marked unclassified and for official use only.I have this picture of John Brennan doing a facepalm upon seeing this, and starting his next memo: "Let's return to step one..."
Brennan writes that the campaign stems from a review of CIA security launched last summer by former director David Petraeus, following what Brennan calls "several high-profile anonymous leaks and publications by former senior officers."
