My client, CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, will begin his thirty-month prison sentence on February 28 in Loretto, Pennsylvania. But even though Kiriakou has already been sentenced, the government still monitors him. And while the government continues to complain about John's public appearances and the events held in his honor, tonight we will send him off in style at a gala reception at the Hay-Adams Hotel in Washington, DC.
The party's hostess, disgruntled heiress Naomi Pitcairn, deliberately chose the Hay-Adams because it reminded her of more civilized times. She remarked:
“My ancestors were staunch Republicans, who raised me to believe that things like torture belonged to the middle ages and were best left there. It is beyond me why our country is punishing this gentleman for the ‘crime’ of informing the American people of atrocities committed in their name. Clearly, all the wrong people are being sent to prison these days.”Kiriakou's broad base of supporters, including actors, politicians, and CIA agents, are expected to turn out tonight to give him the send-off he deserves.
The party is hosted by Code Pink and Fresh Juice Party. The event will begin at 7:30 pm at the Hay-Adams Hotel. Please see Fresh Juice Party's press release for more details, and please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
