Washington D.C.- Critics are voicing concerns over Monday’s ruling on CIA leaker Jeffrey Sterling, questioning how the government can convict Sterling and give him a 3.5-year sentence compared to the light sentence that David Petraeus received for leaking information to his biographer and mistress.

Ben Swann speaks with Norman Solomon from the Institute for Public Accuracy about the case.

Sterling was given an additional two years of supervised release after he finishes his time in jail. The government had sought a prison term of more than 20 years for Sterling, but the judge told prosecutors at the sentencing that was too harsh a punishment.

The former CIA officer, who was fired in the early 2000s, was charged under the Espionage Act for disclosing classified information about a mission meant to slow Iran’s nuclear program to New York Times reporter James Risen, who then wrote about the CIA’s Iranian plot “Operation Merlin” in his 2006 book, ‘State of War’. The plan was designed to project a negative image of Iran’s nuclear program, learn more about it program and impair its progress. Flawed nuclear weapon schematics were reportedly funneled to the Iranians via a Russian scientist with the codename “Merlin.”
