A reporter for the New York Times claims that federal investigators harassed him by obtaining his personal bank records, travel records and information about his phone calls while trying to find the source of an intelligence leak.

In his 2006 book, "State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration," author and New York Times reporter James Risen describes a CIA effort to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions by secretly providing them with faulty blueprints. In the end, a Russian defector working for the CIA exposed the plot.

You can use any sort of justification you want these days to obtain information. It's hard to tell if this a legitamate attempt to find a leak, or just an attempt to get revenge.

Then again, they want to keep their veil of secrecy, and people who leak information might as well be "information terrorists."
