Scott Shane talked about his New York Times Sunday feature story, “From Spy to Source to Convict,” an examination of a former CIA officer in prison for leaking information to a reporter. He detailed the charges against former agent John Kiriakou, a 14-year veteran of the agency who gained notoriety by speaking out against water boarding in an ABC News interview with reporter Brian Ross. Mr. Shane outlined his own involvement as one of the reporters with whom Kiriakou spoke. He said the case was one of six prosecutions during the Obama administration for leaking information to the news media, and that previously only three other prosecutions for leaking information to the press had been prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917. He suggested that e-mail and other electronic records have contributed to the increase in cases being brought, and that Attorney General Eric Holder had not exercised prosecutorial discretion to stop the cases from proceeding. close
