Letter from Loretto

Abby Zimet


A letter from John Kiriakou, the former CIA agent now serving 30 months at the Federal Correctional Institution in Loretto, PA. and the only person ever prosecuted in connection with the Bush administration's use of torture - surreally, for blowing the whistle on it - details his life in prison and just who inside gives him grief. Hint: Not his fellow prisoners. Though the odds are slim, you can still try to help here and here. Or at least hear what he has to say.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
