Former John Effing Kerry Aide Arrested in CIA Leaks

Of course you'd never see that in the WAPO article, where he is only called a former CIA agent:

Former CIA officer charged in leaks case
The Justice Department on Monday charged a former CIA officer with repeatedly leaking classified information, including the identities of agency operatives involved in the capture and interrogation of alleged terrorists.

The case against John Kiriakou, who also served as a senior Senate aide, extends the Obama administration’s crackdown on disclosures of national security secrets. Kiriakou, 47, is the sixth target of a leaks-related prosecution since President Obama took office, exceeding the total number of comparable prosecutions under all previous administrations combined, legal experts said.
Nowhere in the article will you find a mention of his Senate Boss, John Kerry (D - Massachusetts).  However, Politico managed to mention it; in the 12th paragraph.
