Dear Friends and Colleagues:

We are writing to ask you to join us in supporting, protecting, and materially helping our friend and colleague John Kiriakou, a long-time former CIA official and case officer. John, an anti-torture whistleblower and activist, was hounded into ruin by the Justice Department because he revealed that the CIA had tortured prisoners and that torture was official US Government policy.

John accepted a plea to violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act and was sentenced to 30 months in prison. The irony is extraordinary. For more than 14 years, John worked in the field and at home, under conditions of great peril and stress and at great personal sacrifice, dedicating himself to protecting America and Americans from harm at home and abroad.

The Justice Department’s actions have created huge pressures on John and his family. John and Heather have five children—the youngest is just over a year old—and they face the challenge of raising them while simultaneously fighting the CIA, FBI, and Justice Department.

To help them, we have established a trust for the John Kiriakou Support Fund. Please consider making a contribution today. All donors and amounts will be kept strictly confidential.

Every penny of your contribution will go directly to John to help him with his more than $1 million in legal bills and to help feed and clothe his children. Thank you for your help.

Friends of John Kiriakou
