A spy is arrested in Cheney's office!!!!!!

No, not the spy you were thinking of, but a Fillipino spy worked in the Whitehouse in Cheney's office for three years pilfering classified intelligence from computers all over the building.

Instead of outlining it all here, I'm gonna send you to Laura Rozen's Blog. She's already done a pretty good roundup of all the pertinent info this far.

Both the FBI and CIA are calling it the first case of espionage in the White House in modern history.

Officials tell ABC News the alleged spy worked undetected at the White House for almost three years. Leandro Aragoncillo, 46, was a U.S. Marine most recently assigned to the staff of Vice President Dick Cheney.

That link is running slow right now, so I'll link to the original ABCnews story

and the WaPo version.

And let me add the update:

White House spokesman Scott McClellan, asked about the ABC report, said: "It's an ongoing investigation. As such all questions should be directed to the FBI. We are fully cooperating."

(I wish I had the time and inclination to hunt down the video of every "ongoing investigation" comment issued by the whitehouse. Spliced together I'll bet it would be mindnumbing at over five minutes.)
