Ex-CIA officer accused of leaks about Iran seeks dismissal of most counts

The Republic

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A former CIA officer charged with leaking classified documents about agency programs in Iran to a reporter is asking a judge to toss out the bulk of the charges.
A hearing is scheduled Friday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., in the case against Jeffrey Sterling of O'Fallon, Mo.

Sterling was an officer from 1993 to 2002 and spent part of that time on the CIA's Iran Task Force.

The government alleges that Sterling leaked information between 2001 and 2006 to a journalist, who is not identified in court papers. But it is clear from details in the indictment that the journalist is New York Times reporter James Risen. Risen wrote a book in 2006 about the CIA's covert spy war with Iran.
