DESPERATELY SEEKING MARY McCARTHY
I was somewhat surprised that McCarthy's picture was not included with the print reports of her firing at the CIA. One of the video news clips did show a picture of her flashed on the screen. So, with that in mind, I began my searches.
Using AltaVista, I finally found what seems to be the only picture in existance right now (below). It's linked to CSIS, but, as Lorie Byrd discovered: I have been told that all references to McCarthy have disappeared from the CSIS site. So, just for future reference, I grabbed a screen shot showing that it was a CSIS link, although her picture was not to be found there.
8 AnkleBitingPundits weigh in with McCarthy, the Media and Democrat Corruption: I also note that McCarthy got nabbed despite the fact she was not a subject of a much larger Justice Department investigation into even more severe breeches of national security. This could prove to be a long, sobering summer for the political Left. Note: ABP has linked to several other articles worth reading.
8 Pat has linked to even more background on McCarthy: CIA Leaker Was Kerry Supporter
8 Laura Lee, at The Wide Awake Café, says that she was right to suspect it was a WOMAN who leaked classified information to Dana Priest. I’d say it’s about time Mary McCarthy got her butt kicked down the road. But she better the hell get worse than that. This woman is treacherous and for her treachery McCarthy should be hauled into court to face real justice. (not the Sandy Berger kind)
