Kiriakou public stand

by Firedoglake

Please call Bureau of Prisons Director Charles Samuels to request that imprisoned torture whistleblower John Kiriakou be immediately released to a halfway house near his family in Arlington, VA. In 2012, John was arrested and charged with three counts of violating the Espionage Act and other charges for speaking out about torture. The espionage charges against John were dropped and he took a plea deal for a 30 month prison sentence. John had few financial resources upon which to draw for a long and drawn-out trial and believed accepting a plea for 30 months was best way to expedite his return home to his five children. John was eligible to be moved to a halfway house closer to home on May 1st. When you begin the call, you will be given the following sample script which you may use to guide the conversation. --BEGIN SCRIPT-- Hello, my name is __{name}__ and I'm calling today to request that the Bureau of Prisons immediately move John C. Kiriakou (#79637-083) to a halfway house near his wife and young children in Arlington, VA. John has honorably served his country as a highly decorated former CIA agent and has been a model prisoner during his time in FCI Loretto. He was eligible for the halfway house on May 1st, and is supported by multiple members of congress, faith leaders and community groups. Please take the necessary steps to immediately review John's case and transfer him to a halfway house near Arlington, VA. Thank you for your time.
