CIA officer gets 30 months for leak

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The first CIA officer to face prison for disclosing classified information was sentenced Friday to 30 months by a federal judge.

The judge, Leonie M. Brinkema, said that in approving the sentence, she would respect the terms of a plea agreement between the former CIA agent, John C. Kiriakou, and prosecutors, but “I think 30 months is way too light.”
