Imprisoned CIA torture whistleblower John Kiriakou is in the midst of serving a 30 month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institute in Loretto, Pennsylvania. On May 1st, he became eligible to be transferred to a halfway house closer to his wife and 5 young children in Arlington, VA.
According to John’s Letters from Loretto published here at Firedoglake, the Bureau of Prisons had promised to move him on May 1st for a total of 9 months in the halfway house if he promised to stop speaking with the press. John complied, but when it came time to review his case, the BOP rescinded their offer. When John resumed writing his letters and speaking to the press, prison officials began a campaign of harassment and intimidation in an effort to silence him.
