TAKE ACTION

Drop the charges against Jeffrey Sterling. Sign the petition today.


The charges in the case are unproven. But no one disputes that Sterling told Senate Intelligence Committee staffers about that CIA action, dubbed "Operation Merlin."
Click here to sign the petition in support of Sterling: "Blowing the Whistle on Government Recklessness Is a Public Service, Not a Crime."
As Risen's book State of War has documented, Operation Merlin was ill-conceived and dangerous. In the name of countering nuclear proliferation, the CIA risked promoting it.
By informing the staff of the Senate oversight committee about this reckless CIA operation, Jeffrey Sterling acted responsibly. He went through channels to be a whistleblower, despite the great likelihood that doing so would antagonize top CIA officials.
Tell the Justice Department to end the prosecution.
The legal pursuit of Sterling smacks of selective prosecution. When it suits their purposes, top officials often leak information that is "classified." As the New York Times reported days ago: "The government hates leaks of classified information. Except when it doesn't."
Please click here and sign the petition urging the Department of Justice to drop all charges against Jeffrey Sterling.
After signing the petition, forward this message to your friends. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the action yourself.
Thank you for taking action!
