Former CIA officer accused of terror leaks
Monday - 1/23/2012, 2:38pm EST
Forty-seven-year-old John Kiriakou of Arlington was charged with violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act and the Espionage Act. He is scheduled to make an initial appearance in federal court in Alexandria on Monday afternoon.
Prosecutors launched the investigation after defense lawyers filed a classified legal brief in 2009 that included details that had never been provided by the government. Authorities concluded that Kiriakou had leaked the information to reporters, and that reporters had provided the information to the defense.
The charges also state that Kiriakou leaked information about the identity of another CIA officer who participated in Zubaydah's interrogation.
