Pakistani media 'name' CIA station chief in Islamabad

• The Guardian

Fresh tension has erupted between the CIA and Pakistani intelligence after several Pakistani media outlets published the alleged name of the CIA station chief in Islamabad.

Two senior Pakistani officials said the name published, Mark Carlton, was incorrect, but one said it was similar to the real one.

Despite the inaccuracy, publication of the name was seen as a sign of worsening relations between the two spy agencies a week after the death of Osama bin Laden in a garrison town north of Islamabad.

Now this name has been broadcast all over Pakistan and undoubtedly the Middle East/North Africa.   But the Associated Press withheld the name from the USA story's release so you can't know the name because it is "classified" info.  Interesting as to whom is not allowed to know? [the ostensible employers, i.e., taxpayers]
