In the past as I will detail later, and the recent few years there has been a growing trend. Since our president Bush first outed an agent of the
community, intelligence that is. Others who do the same, seem to think it is ok. "Whistleblower", and other terms were once looked upon as a way to
report abuse within the job. Now it seems these "whistleblowers" are growing in size, and it may not be for the better.
What now of these formerly trusted once well paid, now unemployed intelligence operatives supposed to do? How are they feeling about being shafted,
and kicked to the curb for doing what they may have thought was the right thing. Instead being blacklisted, and probably put on some kind of jacked up
watch list. Not only has our government been blowing the cover of agents but they havnt gotten in trouble for it, how ever others in kind do.
Now the whistleblowers can't use that whistle, in fear of losing the only job they can have, so now corruption goes unchecked completely. To those
who were outed for doing the right thing, my hat is off to you. At least you had the balls to try to do the right thing, even if they didnt let you.
As for the detailing later part. Some agents were outed for being corrupt, others for reporting the corruption. Others still outed just because,
perhaps as moles or some other covert means, like dropping one cover to better take up another. It happend a lot in the cold war, and you know what
they say about history.
I'm going to try and use this thread to compile a list of the agents outed by our government, such as the Senators slip, and the Bush droppings, if
any one is inclined or interested please jump in. It isn't the easiest thing carrying on a thread all by ones self.

Loose Lips Let Slip Agent's Name at Hearing (Kerry, Lugar)
On September 30, Mr. Ed Gillespie, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, publicly stated that the Bush Administration's leak of the CIA
agent's identity is far more serious than Richard Nixon's Watergate burglaries.
