Cringing Cowards of the CIA

The Washington Note is following the strange case of Flynt Leverett, ex-CIA, NSA, DoS, who now works for the New America Foundation.
He wrote an OpEd for the NYT which was submitted to the CIA Publications Review Board which said that it was A-OK, not strange since it was based on an already published paper that you can download and read.
After it was cleared, however, the White House reviewed it and sent it back to the CIA, which then redacted key parts of the article.
Meanwhile, Ken Pollack, a leading cheerleader for the Iraq adventure, and supporter of the current Iran policy, wrote the same info in an OpEd, which of course was NOT censored.
The Washington Note has a statement by Mr. Leverett, read it.
