A Fine Mess

I'll admit to not following this story closely, but apparently the Bushies leaked the name of an al Qaeda double agent to the media which ruined a British run operation to bust a major al Qaeda cell. The leak was done to give some substance to all those stupid terror warnings last week. The British are pissed. Home Secretary David Blunkett said he won't release information just to feed a media frenzy and accused the Bushies of overemphasizing threats for political gain.

Juan Cole has more.
