Big Rumor: Leon Panetta Resigns from CIA?
Nope: CIA Spokesman Denies

Denial: Spence Ackerman called, and got right on through, as he's a lefty:

“This report is false, wrong and bogus,” said CIA spokesman George Little.

Incidentally, Erick Erickson checked his spam folder and he has an email from the CIA spokesman, too, saying it's not true.

Seems to quash the rumor. Unless it's so hush-hush at this point that not even the CIA spokesman knows about it, but in that case, how did Erick Erickson get tipped?

Thanks to Gabe for that update.

...

Only a rumor, only a rumor.

Still, it's big enough to link. It's from RedState.

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

...

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

Thanks to Gabe.

Who's Left? Cautiously Pessimistic writes what I was just going to--

Any bets on who replaces him? An ACORN founder, or avowed communist, maybe?

Don't forget "union stooge."

Or...

I've got the perfect person.

Sandy Berger.

Thanks to Ben for that.

Background: In case you missed it, Drudge and everyone else linked this ABCNews story reporting a profanity-filled screaming fight between Panetta and some of Obama's toadies. and the threat -- threat -- of resignation.

Thanks to A.G. for providing the link.
