Outing CIA agents, where's the outrage?

Remember when the left went berserk over the outing of Agent 99, better known as Valerie Plame? The left could not contain its outrage over the Bush administration alleged actions of blowing the cover of one of its undercover agents in retaliation for her husbands op-ed in the NY Times criticizing the Bush administration for lying us into the Iraq war. Well it turns out she wasn't so undercover and he was the liar.

Now fast-forward to Friday's news that lawyers for AQ detainees had shown their clients photographs of CIA agents, outing their identities, I am wondering where is the outrage? The media has been largely silent. Wonder why? If ever there was a violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982 this surely would be it, right?

So I am waiting patiently for someone in the WH press corp, anyone other than Major Garret or Jake Tapper, to ask a question about this.  Will it happen?  I think not...
