Former CIA officer John Kiriakou leaves U.S. District Courthouse in Alexandria, Va., on Oct. 23, 2012. Government information leaks and collisions with the media date back decades and decades. Think back to the Pentagon Papers. Kiriakou was arrested in 2012 and charged with leaking classified details about terror operations. Kiriakou, who was involved in the capture of al-Qaida terrorist Abu Zubaydah, was sentenced earlier this year to more than two years in prison for leaking a covert officer's identity to a freelance writer.
