Ex-CIA agent John Kiriakou has been charged with leaking classified information to journalists, and disclosing the identity of a covert CIA officer involved in the interrogation of al-Qaida terrorist Abu Zubaydah at Guantanamo Bay. Kiriakou wrote the book "Reluctant Spy: My Secret Life in the CIA’s War on Terror" about his time in the CIA, and has said he was on the team that captured Zubaydah in 2002.
