Reality Winner leaked to the media classified info. on Russian inte in the U.S. election. (412 hits)

Reality Winner leaked to the media classified info. on Russian interference in the U.S. election.

Watch “I am not a traitor”: Reality Winner explains why she leaked a classified document – Google USA News Youtube HD Video Online

A story about someone named Reality Winner has to start with the name. Her father, playing on the family name, explained he wanted “a real winner.” And so, Reality. Maybe that still doesn’t make sense, but it is the least baffling fact in this story. Reality Winner became an infamous name in 2017 when she was accused of espionage. She was hit with the longest sentence ever imposed on a civilian for leaking classified information to the media. Now released, she spoke with us. Did Reality Winner do “exceptionally grave damage” as the prosecutors said? Or did she reveal a truth that defended America? It’s complicated —like the young woman with the unforgettable name.

Reality Winner: I am not a traitor. I am not a spy. I am somebody who only acted out of love for what this country stands for.

We met 30-year-old Reality Winner, at home in Texas, after four years behind bars. ‘Espionage’ seemed surprising for a woman who joined the Air Force at 19 and won the Air Force Commendation Medal, in 2016, for “600 enemies killed in action.” She did that as a linguist in a combat unit fighting secret missions.

Scott Pelley: How many languages do you speak?

Reality Winner: Farsi, Dari, and Pashto.

Scott Pelley: These are the languages of Afghanistan and Iran.

Reality Winner: Yes.

But her duty station was 7,000 miles away from those countries, at Fort Meade, Maryland.

Scott Pelley: Why are you at Fort Meade?

Reality Winner: I’m not… Am I allowed to say that?

Lawyer (off camera): Nope.

Reality Winner: Nope

That’s the voice of her lawyer, who helped her steer clear of secrets in our interview. Winner wouldn’t say it, but at Fort Meade, linguists eavesdropped on communications in Afghanistan to identify targets for armed drones.
