On Sunday, the New York Times published an extensive article examining the CIAâ€™s interrogation of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM). The article identified the name of the CIA agent who interrogated KSM, Deuce Martinez.
Yesterday, on The Oâ€™Reilly Factor, Karl Rove slammed the New York Times for supposedly leaking the name of a CIA agent. â€œ[T]heyâ€™ve got a very callous view about our nationâ€™s security and interests,â€ Rove charged:
ROVE: Well, I read their explanation. And basically, it sounded to me like they were saying we put his name out there because we decided we could. And I mean, they didnâ€™t have a good explanation for it.
Rove claimed the United States is put at risk when a CIA agentâ€™s identity is leaked. â€œLook, they put our country at risk when they reveal the details of a program that saved America from attacks.â€ Watch it.
