FBI raids home in Justice Dept. media leak
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- The Washington-area home of a former Justice Department lawyer was raided by FBI agents looking into who leaked security news to the media.

Using a classified warrant, agents seized the computer of Thomas Tamm, along with two of his children's laptop computers, Newsweek reported Monday.

Tamm worked with the department's of Intelligence Policy and Review, which oversees surveillance of terrorist and espionage targets.

Two sources who asked not to be identified told the magazine the Bush administration is still trying to determine who spoke to the New York Times in December 2005 about the warrantless eavesdropping program.

With a classified executive order, Bush permitted the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on terror suspects in other countries without obtaining a warrant from a classified court.

Newsweek said neither Tamm nor his lawyer would comment on the raid.
