Shame on you WaPo!

The Washington Post revealed today that it decided not to inform the public that Raymond Davis was a CIA agent, despite the fact that it had established this fact some time ago: "The Washington Post learned of Davis's CIA affiliation after his arrest, but agreed not to publish the information at the request of senior U.S. intelligence officials, who cited concern for Davis's safety if his true employment status were disclosed", journalist Greg Miller wrote today. "Those officials withdrew the request not to publish on Monday after other news organizations identified Davis as a CIA employee, and after U.S. officials made a final attempt to prevail upon Pakistan's government to release Davis or move him to a safer facility."
Is this what is meant by investigative journalism? Why bother? Just change your name to the Washington pussies.
