Former C.I.A. Officer Is the First to Face Prison for a Classified Leak

The first C.I.A. officer to be convicted of disclosing classified information to a reporter in more than six decades is scheduled to be sentenced to 30 months in prison on Jan. 25. John Kiriakou is to be sentenced as part of a plea deal in which he admitted e-mailing the name of a covert officer to a reporter.


Supporters say Mr. Kiriakou neither intended to damage national security nor did so. Some see a dark paradox in the impending imprisonment of Mr. Kiriakou, who in a 2007 appearance on ABC News defended the C.I.A.’s use of desperate measures to get information but also said that he had come to believe that waterboarding was torture and should no longer be used.
