Jeffrey Sterling Excerpt: A federal indictment accuses former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling of giving classified information to New York Times reporter James Risen -- about a CIA operation that provided flawed nuclear weapon blueprints to Iran in 2000. The charges in that indictment are unproven, and a trial is set for January 2015. But no one disputes that Sterling told Senate Intelligence Committee staffers about that CIA action, which was dubbed Operation Merlin. As Risen documented in his book State of War, Operation Merlin was ill-conceived and dangerous.

The prosecution of Sterling smacks of selective prosecution. General James Cartwright, who reportedly leaked information on far more recent and sensitive counter-proliferation efforts against Iran, has not faced prosecution. And the Defense Department’s top officials cannot even be identified as leakers by that agency’s Inspector General reports, which apparently protected the former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta from scrutiny for leaking classified information about the raid on Osama bin Laden.
