Leaking CIA names is okay again

The most surreal aspect of the Plame-Novak-Armitage affair was the spectacle of watching liberals and journalists acting outraged at the leak of a CIA agent’s identity, something they supported in every other instance in recorded history.  Here’s further evidence that their outrage was merely a one-off, prompted by the unusual circumstance that it could be used against a Republican administration:

According to current and former government officials, the CIA’s secret waterboarding program was designed and assured to be safe by two well-paid psychologists now working out of an unmarked office building in Spokane, Washington.

Bruce Jessen and Jim Mitchell, former military officers, together founded Mitchell Jessen and Associates.

Both men declined to speak to ABC News citing non-disclosure agreements with the CIA. But sources say Jessen and Mitchell together designed and implemented the CIA’s interrogation program.
