The Bush administration faces renewed pressure after claims a top White House adviser illegally leaked the name of a CIA agent after her husband challenged a key claim used to justify the war.

US national security adviser Condoleezza Rice said she knew "nothing of any" White House effort to leak the identity of an undercover CIA officer in July.

Former ambassador Joseph Wilson, the man who personally helped debunk US intelligence claims that Iraq had sought to purchase uranium from Niger, recently charged that the White House was responsible for leaking information about his wife’s alleged employment as a covert operative for the CIA.
