Prison for Blair-Bush memo leak

London - "A judge on Thursday sentenced a British civil servant to six months for leaking a classified memo about a meeting between Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W. Bush, in breach of the Official Secrets Act. A lawmaker's aide was sentenced to three months.

"David Keogh, 50, a government communications officer, was found guilty of 'making a damaging disclosure' by passing on the secret memo about April 2004 talks between the two leaders in which Bush purportedly referred to bombing the Arab television station Al-Jazeera."

I dips me lid to David Keogh, who bravely did the right thing in the face of criminal governments.
