Topic: John Kiriakou
John Kiriakou, a former CIA officer, was sentenced to 30 months in prison for leaking the name of a covert officer to a reporter in 2007. Kiriakou was among the first to confirm the use of waterboarding in interrogating al-Qaida terrorists.
The number, much higher than previously reported, comes out as President Obama visits CIA headquarters today.
