Apparently an intelligence report revealed there's some evidence that a senior Gadhafi aide took bodies from the morgue and placed them on the scene of the bomb damage to be displayed for visiting journalists.

Then comes the interesting part.

A senior U.S. defense official revealed the contents of the intelligence report on condition of anonymity because it was classified secret.

Glenn Greenwald's questions (http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2011/03/24/leak/index.html) are the same as mine.
I wonder if Eric Holder will shortly announce an investigation to find out who is responsible for this leak?

Will the guilty party be charged with a capital crime and be held in solitary confinement near a cell occupied by Bradley Manning?

I also wonder if the Associated Press will now be viewed as another WikiLeaks.

That would be a lot of history, reputation, and huge names in journalism to undermine.

It absolutely could be investigated, yes. It's always a brave risk (when you have real knowledge of what you're releasing and all, I'd add!)
