First, the Justice Department yesterday charged a former CIA agent, John Kiriakou, with four felony counts for having allegedly disclosed classified information to reporters about the CIA's interrogation program. Included among those charges are two counts under the Espionage Act of 1917, based on the allegation that he disclosed information which he 'had reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States and to the advantage of any foreign nation.' Kiriakou made news in 2007 when he told ABC News that he led the team that captured accused Terrorist Abu Zubaydah and that the techniques to which Zubaydah was subjected, including waterboarding, clearly constituted 'torture,' though he claimed they were effective and arguably justifiable. He's also accused of being the source for a 2008 New York Times article that disclosed the name of one of Zubaydah's CIA interrogators.
