That's the headline of this fascinating New York Times profile of John C. Kiriakou, who was the first C.I.A. officer to speak out about waterboarding. He later gave a reporter the name of covert C.I.A. officer he thought had retired, but hadn't, an operative who had a supervisory role in the C.I.A.'s rendition program. (The reporter didn't even publish the name, but the F.B.I. found the disclosure by going through Kiriakou's email.) Kiriakou fully admits he shouldn't have given the name, and pleaded guilty to a deal that will see him locked up for 30 months.
One retired C.I.A. officer quoted in the piece describes Kiriakou as "an exceptionally good intelligence officer" who does not deserve to go to prison:
“To me the irony of this whole thing is, very simply, that he’s going to be the only C.I.A. officer to go to jail over torture,” even though he publicly denounced torture... “It’s deeply ironic under the Democratic president who ended torture.”
