CIA initially said Plame's name being publicly mentioned wasn't a problem

The Washington Post, 2003:
The CIA occasionally asks news organizations to withhold the names of undercover agents, and news organizations usually comply. An intelligence official told The Post yesterday that no further harm would come from repeating Plame's name.
The supposed crime mentioned by the CIA before the Fitzgerald investigation began:
"unauthorized disclosure of unauthorized information"
Very odd. These facts were extracted from Tom Maguire's brilliant recent summary post.
