Rumors Surface That Leon Panetta is Resigning

I’m hearing a very credible rumor that Leon Panetta has dispatched a resignation letter to Barack Obama on vacation.

Panetta is said to be extremely angry about the possible prosecution of CIA officers doing their job and has decided to resign in protest.

The rumor is unconfirmed, but given the sourcing I think it is safe to treat it credibly.

UPDATED: Spencer Ackerman, cast in the role of news guy, says it is not true.

Checking my spam folder, I find an email from George Little at the CIA saying it is not happening.
