Whistleblowers sentenced to jail

Via Craig Murray:

Two principled Britons, David Keogh, a Whitehall communications officer, and Leo O'Connor, researcher to a former Labour MP, were found guilty of breaching the Official Secrets Act and jailed.

Keogh and O'Connor leaked a memo showing that Bush suggested bombing Al Jazeera headquarters in Qatar in 2004.
