President Obama: Pardon CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou

Former CIA officer John Kiriakou, who helped expose the Bush administration's torture program, recently plead guilty to sharing the name of a colleague to journalists to use as a source. He is expected to receive a sentence of 30 months in prison.

It's a cruel irony that the first agent connected to the CIA torture program to go to prison is the whistleblower who spoke out against the heinous practices of our government. From Bradley Manning to Aaron Swartz to John Kiriakou, the government's pattern of overzealously prosecuting activists and whistleblowers has ruined too many lives already.

Sign our petition demanding President Obama to pardon CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou.

We the undersigned call on President Barack Obama to pardon former CIA agent John Kiriakou for blowing the whistle on the torture of detainees in the War on Terror.
