A federal court in Virginia sentenced ex-CIA analyst John Kiriakou to more than two years in prison this morning, for revealing the name of a covert agent. Kiriakou was the first federal agent to speak publicly about the Bush Administration’s torture program. Transparency and human rights advocates have criticized the Obama Administration for prosecuting federal employees like Kiriakou, while at the same time pardoning those responsible for the crimes they expose. FSRN’s Alice Ollstein spoke to Kiriakou and his attorney this week, and files this report.
