Retaliatory Discharge of CIA Officer
A recently discharged CIA officer has sued the CIA, alleging that the agency began a counterintelligence investigation into him after he criticized pre-war intelligence on Iraqi WMN capabilities. The operative was also "told that a promotion was being canceled 'because of pressure from the DDO [Deputy Director of Operations] James Pavitt.'"
Pavitt's name has been bandied about by conservatives charging him with leading the CIA response to the Goss purges. He was recently hired by Brent Scowcroft's consulting firm.
