John Kiriakou
John Kiriakou is a former CIA analyst who, in 2007, gave an interview on ABC admitting that the CIA was using waterboarding as a form of torture on inmates in Guantanamo Bay. In 2010, released a memoir entitled The Reluctant Spy: My Secret Life in the CIA’s War on Terror. In 2012 he was charged with repeatedly disclosing classified information to the press. He originally plead not guilty to the charges but in October of 2012 he accepted a deal to plead guilty, sparing reporters he had talked to from having to testify in the trial. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison in January of 2013. 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, Friends of John Kiriakou have established a trust for the John Kiriakou Support Fund. Every penny of contributions go directly to John to help him with his more than $1 million in legal bills and to help feed and clothe his children. He is permitted to receive mail from anyone, and soft cover books and magazines only from individuals. Write to him here: John Kiriakou 79637-083 FCI Loretto P.O. Box 1000 Loretto, PA 15940

Private Manning
Chelsea Manning: Chelsea Manning is a former US Army intelligence specialist who is accused of releasing classified information to WikiLeaks, who in turn released portions of the information to news organizations and ultimately to the public.

She was sentenced to 35 years in prison, with a possibility of parole after 1/3 of the sentence has been served. She will get nearly 4 years credit for time served, including a 112 day sentence reduction for harsh treatment while in custody. NOTE: On August 22, 2013 – the day after her sentencing – Manning released a statement confirming her gender as female and requesting feminine pronouns and her preferred name, Chelsea, be used.

Kevin and Tyler – Animal Rights Activists Imprisoned in Illinois Tyler Lang and Kevin Olliff are two Los Angeles animal rights activists who were arrested in rural Illinois for “possession of burglary tools.” After a traffic stop in which they refused consent to a police search, their car was searched anyway. Inside, police allege they found bolt cutters, wire cutters, muriatic acid, ski masks, and camo clothing. Police believe these items were “burglary tools” intended to be used in a crime, and arrested Kevin and Tyler. The two are held on felony charges which carry up to 3 years in prison. They have remained in jail since their arrest on August 14th. There is no evidence linking them to any crime or intended crime, nor were they arrested on anyone’s property, and their history as animal advocates is the only basis for these serious felony charges. Tyler Lang #4564 Woodford County Jail 111 E Court St. Eureka, IL 61530 Kevin Johnson #4565 Woodford County Jail 111 E Court St. Eureka, IL 61530
