Trent Lott: Republicans May Have Leaked Secret Prison Locations

Too funny. This morning, Sen. Frist and Rep. Hastert sent a letter complaining about leaks of the locations of secret prisons that found their way into the Washington Post. The New York Times reported on the letter here.

But, it has backfired.

But today, in an off-camera meeting with reporters, Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) revealed that the leak likely came from a Senator or Senate staffer who attended a GOP-only meeting with Vice President Dick Cheney last week, where the detention centers were discussed.

Crooks and Liars has the video from CNN's Situation Room today. Raw Story has the letter which Frist at first said he didn't sign and then it turned out that he did sign it.

    Haha, remember when the wingnut trolls wouldn't shut up about how this was worse than plamegate and we were all traitors? You guys did this one, too. Congrats.
