The NYT Just Doxxed A Top Undercover CIA Agent, Reportedly Putting His Life In Danger

The New York Times has come under fire for allegedly publishing the name of what The Washington Examiner describes as “an undercover CIA agent leading U.S. operations related to Iran.”

The New York Times report – still up on its site – names the agent, Michael D’Andrea and acknowledges, “perhaps no single CIA official is more responsible for weakening Al Qaeda.”

If that’s not mind-boggling enough, The New York Times report also acknowledges, “Iran has been one of the hardest targets for the CIA.”

“The agency has extremely limited access to the country — no American embassy is open to provide diplomatic cover — and Iran’s intelligence services have spent nearly four decades trying to counter American espionage and covert operations,” the outlet continues.

As The Federalist puts it, “The Times has apparently made it the newspaper’s mission to make the agency’s work much much more difficult and far more dangerous by publicly identifying the man in charge of its covert operations in the Persian country.”

To add to the mind-boggling nature of it all, The New York Times states that it named D’Andrea “because his identity was previously published in news reports and he is leading an important new administration against Iran.”

As for those previous reports? They apparently had nothing to do with D’Andrea’s alleged involvement in “weakening Al Qaeda.”

Rather, the article The New York Times links to in an effort to bolster its defense is this piece, which names D’Andrea as the man responsible for expanding the CIA’s use of drones in Yemen and Pakistan.

Remarkably, despite having just doxxed the man, The New York Times article states that its sources within the CIA “spoke only on the condition of anonymity because Mr. D’Andrea remains undercover, as do many senior officials based at the agency’s headquarters.”

The Israel Project’s Omri Ceren has blasted The New York Times for its report, highlighting just how much danger the outlet has put D’Andrea in.

This is not the first time in recent weeks The New York Times has come under fire for publishing classified information.

Following last week’s terror attack in Manchester, the outlet published classified crime scene photos.

Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins promptly skewered the outlet, stating its leaks had caused great distress.

As Fox News reported, Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham subsequently stated they would not be sharing intel with the United States related to the attack.

      Wishful thinking. I doubt anything will happen to them. Nothing happens to any of the anti-American news agencies not matter what they publish, no matter what they say.

    This is a good reminder that there are many good patriots in the Intelligence Community. But also that there are many traitors and they are working with other traitors like the New York Times to betray their fellow spooks.

    That kind of treachery should end in the perpetrator hanging from a piano wire noose, in my opinion. There is simply no other punishment suitable unless you prefer something more severe.

    It’s now Open Season for the DOJ / Sessions to raid their offices – confiscate files – and begin arresting people in this Commie fraud propaganda organization – the NYT.
    Good time to get a bead on many of the fake ‘sources’ and leaks that have been going on.

    MAKE it happen.

    Time to pumish these traitors at the NYT. Forget the “special prosecutor” garbage and send in the cops with riot shields, K9s and batons!
