Frist, Hastert ask for Congressional investigation into leaks

The Washinton Post ran a story last week that the CIA had set up secret detention prisons in foreign countries. Sen. Frist, Senate Majority Leader, and Dennis Hastert, House Majority Leader, have written letters to the chairs of their respective intelligence committee chairs calling for an investigation into who leaked the information about the detention centers to the press.

In journalistic circles, the informed speculation is that the information probably came from foreign sources. However, unlike the Democrats who sent the Senate into closed session to get the intelligence committee to get serious about the Valerie Plame Wilson leak, the Republicans have control of the legislature and investigations into any leaks about the secret detention centers are expected to proceed post haste.
