CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou Is Counting Down the Days Until His Release | The Dissenter

We were delayed in our travel when the back right tire of our rental car blew out just south of Hagerstown, Maryland. We were only about 45 minutes into our trip.There was a question of whether we would make it to even see Kiriakou. Visiting hours only last until 2:15 pm. But a man from a local roadside service company was sent by Budget to come help, and we were back on the road in about an hour.At about 1 pm, we pulled into the parking lot of Federal Correctional Institution Loretto. Both of us rushed inside and filled out the information necessary to be cleared for access as visitors, and we discovered that the Bureau of Prisons had incorporated an Ebola questionnaire into this process.Neither of us had been to Liberia, Sierra Leone, or any other part of western Africa and neither of us were showing symptoms that could conceivably be construed as Ebola. Also, if we had a fever, muscle pain, sore throat or headache, we certainly would not have been making this trek on Sunday. Who does the Bureau of Prisons think would visit with Ebola and risk infecting family or friends? Ebola terrorists?We were escorted and made it into the visitors room about 1:15. The prison guards told us that we just made the cutoff and were the last people to be allowed in today.Kiriakou was very happy to see us. He sat down and immediately talked about how he had started to count the days until he will be released from Loretto.
