JOHN KIRIAKOU, CIA OFFICER IN TORTURE LEAK CASE, INJURED IN SERIOUS TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

Updated | John Kiriakou, a prominent ex-CIA officer who was among the first to reveal the agency’s torture program, was seriously injured in a scooter accident earlier this week in Washington, D.C.

Kiriakou says he suffered six broken ribs, a broken clavicle and a fractured vertebrae in an accident Tuesday night en route to a bookstore in northwest D.C. "I had a port installed in my neck and a second port installed in my back to take targeted painkillers,” he wrote on his Facebook page. "Thank God I was wearing a helmet.”

Kiriakou was driving his Vespa in northwest Washington Tuesday night when a car stopped suddenly in front of him. He plowed into the vehicle and was taken by ambulance to George Washington University Hospital, Radack says.

The Washington Metropolitan Police Department said it had no record of the incident and referred inquiries to the U.S. Park Police, which also patrols the area. The Park Police could not be reached for comment in time for publication.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was most likely a botched assassination attempt; why else did Washington Metro Police claim they did not have any information on it, and the Park Police refused to comment?!?

John, along with that helmet, please get your Kevlar undies on; don't get "depressed", and don't ride in small aircraft, for heaven's sake!!
