The war on whistleblowers rages on and the Obama administration adds one more causality to the war on government transparency. On Thursday, former CIA official John Kiriakou was indicted for allegedly leaking information to journalists. Kiriakou is no rookie to whistleblowing; he exposed the CIA’s use of waterboarding on terror suspects. If convicted, Kiriakou could receive a maximum of 45 years in prison for the five-count indictment including three charges under the Espionage Act.Stephen Kohn, author of The Whistleblower’s Handbook, joins us with his take on Kiriakou’s case.
