Ex-CIA Officer Jeffrey Sterling Framed, Convicted of Leaking Secrets | NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
[Editors: Clearly Mr. Sterling is a classic fall guy for yet another CIA scam operation. There is no such thing as an Iran nuclear weapon program. The U.S. and Israel are looking for any reason to invade Iran and take it over. The only notable “enemy” nations left on the new world order agenda list are Iran, Syria, North Korea, Russia and China. Malaysia has been feeling the fallout with the fabricated Malaysian Airline mystery flights. Cuba looks like it is folding to the U.S. Once these deceivers feel they’ve conquered the remaining nations on their demonic list, they would become the darkest governments mankind has ever created.]
A former CIA officer was convicted Monday of leaking classified details of an operation to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions to a New York Times reporter.
Jurors convicted 47-year-old Jeffrey Sterling, of O’Fallon, Missouri, of all nine counts he faced in federal court. On the third day of deliberations, the jurors had told the judge that they could not reach a unanimous verdict. But they delivered guilty verdicts later in the afternoon after the judge urged them to keep talking.
At issue in the two-week trial: Who told journalist James Risen about the secret mission, one that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice testified was one of the government’s most closely held secrets as well as one of its best chances to thwart Iran’s nuclear-weapons ambitions?
A former CIA officer who was involved in a highly secretive operation to give faulty nuclear plans to Iran was convicted Monday of providing classified information about his work to a New York Times reporter — a significant win for federal prosecutors and a presidential administration that has worked zealously to root out leakers.
As guilty verdicts were read on all nine criminal counts, Jeffrey Sterling stared emotionless at the jurors who decided his fate. His wife, seated in the courtroom behind him, sobbed.
The 47-year-old Missouri man is scheduled to be sentenced April 24 and remains free until then.
