UPDATES on the Raymond Davis case: Just how is this so intelligent?

Just how is this so intelligent - these moves by our US "Intelligence"?

On February 21st the US administration admitted that Davis was a CIA operative following the publication of this fact in the British newspaper The Guardian. A number of US media outlets followed and admitted that they had also learned about Davis's CIA role but had kept quiet at the request of the Obama administration. "We knew early on" said Dean Baquet of the New York Times.'s Glenn Greenwald has criticised this complicity with the US government in concealing information: "It's one thing for a newspaper to withhold information because they believe its disclosure would endanger lives," Greenwald wrote. "But here, the U.S. Government has spent weeks making public statements that were misleading in the extreme — Obama's calling Davis 'our diplomat in Pakistan' — while the NYT deliberately concealed facts undermining those government claims because government officials told them to do so. That's called being an active enabler of government propaganda."
