CIA Media Mole

"This CIA officer acknowledged having unauthorized discussions with the media in which the officer knowingly shared classified intelligence, including operational information," CIA spokeswoman Michele Neff said.

I don't know about you, but I kind of want the CIA to be able to do its job catching bad guys. It makes it lots harder to do if people who work for the CIA, and signed agreements saying they would not share secrets, and know that what they are doing is illegal, take it upon themselves to share whatever they feel like with the media. I don't give a rats ass who this woman was helping or hurting politically, we all lose if more planes go crashing into buildings. In this time of struggle and extra caution we should not allow any government organization to run out of control, but the CIA needs to be able to find and eliminate the bad guys and this means playing in the gray space and keeping secrets.

And if you doubt there are still bad guys who'd like a crack at blowing themselves up to kill you (and they don't give a rats ass about what political party you belong to either), just look here or here or here.
