Tell the Bureau of Prisons to Honor its Deal With John Kiriakou
Call Now: (202) 307-3198

CIA torture whistleblower John Kiriakou recently resumed speaking with the press and writing his 'Letters from Loretto' after the Bureau of Prisons reneged on their deal to give him 9 months in a halfway house. Unfortunately, prison officials have chosen to respond with brute force: conducting surprise searches of his cell, attempting to remove his writing desk, threatening him with 'diesel therapy' and now preventing him from seeing his family.

John's wife and 3 youngest children left recently drove 210 miles to see him. When they arrived, prison officials told them to leave because the visitation room was 'too crowded.'

This vindictive behavior by the Bureau of Prisons must end.

Please join us in contacting the Bureau of Prisons Director Charles Samuels and demand he put a stop to the illegal retaliation against John Kiriakou and honor the agreement to grant John nine months in a halfway house near his family.

Sample script:

Hello, my name is __{name}__ and I'm calling today to demand the Bureau of Prisons end its illegal retaliation against imprisoned CIA torture whistleblower John Kiriakou and honor its agreement to grant him nine months in a halfway house near his family.

John has been a model prisoner during his time in FCI Loretto. He even stopped his letter writing - which is his First Amendment right - at the prison's request. But after the Bureau of Prisons went back on its deal, John spoke up, and the Bureau's response has been wholly unacceptable.

John has been subject to surprise searches. Prison officials told him they'd break his desk off his cell wall. He was threatened with so-called Diesel Therapy. And most recently his wife and three young children were thrown out of the prison when they attempted to visit him. I'm calling to demand the Bureau of Prisons immediately stop this illegal retaliation and grant John his full nine months in a halfway house.
