Ex-CIA agent heads to prison for torture leak

John Kiriakou is the first current or former CIA officer convicted of leaking classified information.

    A former CIA officer is expected to plead guilty to leaking the name of a fellow officer to the media.

    John Kiriakou agreed to a plea deal and a reduced jail sentence.

    But he still insists his only real crime was embarrassing the United States government and revealing its use of torture.
