The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

One Man's Whistleblower

There was quite a controversy in the blogosphere a couple of days ago over Reuters' decision to characterise an ex-CIA employee who outed other CIA spies in Cuba, thus leading to their execution, as a "whistleblower."

It would seem that these complaints have finally reached the Editorial desk. Reuters responds:

Several readers objected to the “whistle-blower” headline, making a fair point. [Ed.:—Ya think?] We subsequently change the headline to:

Ex-CIA spy who exposed agents dies in Cuba

GBU Editor

as for this story, I say.... he was an (*EX*)-cia spy? wouldn't he always be a spy who formerly worked for the CIA?
