J. William Leonard, the former head of the government’s Information Security Oversight Office, is prepared to testify that the classified information two former members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee are accused of receiving and transmitting did not meet the standards for national security classification. But prosecutors have said his testimony could result in his going to jail for a year. Now, Leonard’s attorney has filed a motion that could lead to the judge ordering Leonard to testify, negating any penalty for his testimony. (9/2/08)
