U.S.: Pakistan Leaked CIA Names

U.S. officials said Monday that Pakistan's intelligence service leaked the name of the CIA station chief, as the country reels from worldwide criticism about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. U.S. officials acknowledged they had no proof behind their accusation, except that a similar incident occurred last year and the CIA was forced to pull their top agent out of Pakistan. The name, apparently misspelled, was aired by a private television station, ARY, on Friday and published in the right-wing newspaper The Nation on Saturday. Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani acknowledged Monday that there had been an “intelligence failure” by not knowing that bin Laden had been hiding so close to the capital.
