Boston newspaper outs anonymous CIA agent

"The active U.S. intelligence officer known only as 'Anonymous,' who has gained world renown this month as author of an upcoming book called Imperial Hubris, is actually named Michael Scheuer, according to an article in the Boston Phoenix today by Jason Vest... The book, Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror, asserts, among other things, that Osama bin Laden is not on the run and that the invasion of Iraq has not made the United States safer. In that June 23 piece, the Times identified Anonymous as a 22-year CIA veteran who ran the Counterterrorist Center's bin Laden station from 1996 to 1999, adding that a 'senior intelligence official' held that revealing the man's full name 'could make him a target of Al Qaeda.'"
