What did the Obama administration and the power elites of the Hidden State receive in return for the generals lite sentence? If they wanted this whole mess buried, it would have been so. There is so much more here than we will ever no about, but one thing is certain, what is on the surface is not remotely the real story.
The Obama administration is against intelligence officials leaking classified information—but some conditions may apply.
If you’re a CIA analyst who talks to reporters, you might end up serving 30 months in federal prison or facing more. Even a reporter could end up being named a co-conspirator by prosecutors. But if you’re a decorated general, a former CIA director, and a former member of the Cabinet, you might get off with a $40,000 fine and two years of probation.
Just ask David Petraeus, the man who went from war hero to chief spy to disgraced adulterer in a few short years. While the juicy story was that the CIA director was having an affair with an Army Reserve officer writing his biography, his resignation and apology didn’t end the legal issues. The retired four-star general still stood accused of providing classified information to Paula Broadwell, the writer, including binders featuring his daily schedule and notes from meetings with President Obama
CIA Whistleblower face 100 years for Exposing Gov’t Lies
CIA whistleblower, Jeffrey Sterling, now faces up to 100 years in prison and a fine of $2.25 million for blowing the whistle on the CIA planting false evidence of nuclear weapons in Iran. This demonstrates how corrupt the government is. They will start wars for personal gain and lie to the people each and every time. Obama promised he would be honorable and “protect” whistleblowers from prosecution and punishment, Just another crock of bullshit. He is due in court April 24th.
