I said earlier that this would happen.  The CIA prosecution would result in leaks that the CIA wants out and will hurt the Obama administration.  Here is the first one.  It seems odd at first, but my guess is that the CIA knows full well who the leak was and it was someone high in the DoJ or Obama administration.  I think this was just a mild smack on the head to warn Team Obama what could be coming.

Eli Lake and Sara Carter report in a Washington Times exclusive that the CIA has asked the Department of Justice to open an investigation into the leak of a classified but never implemented program to assassinate al-Qaeda leaders.  Leon Panetta got bushwhacked by the revelation earlier this summer as his fellow Democrats tried to use it to rescue Nancy Pelosi from her rhetorical limb after she publicly accused the CIA of lying to Congress about its activities.  Now he wants to know who spilled the beans:

Besieged by leaks of several closely held secrets, the CIA has asked the Justice Department to examine what it regards as the criminal disclosure of a secret program to kill foreign terrorist leaders abroad, The Washington Times has learned.
