US Counter-terrorism analyst charged with leaking classified materials

A counter-terrorism analyst with the US Defense Intelligence Agency was arrested on Wednesday over charges he had leaked classified materials about a foreign country’s weapons system to two journalists, in 2018 and 2019, the US Department of Justice Department (DoJ) said in federal court filings.

Information that 30-year-old Henry Kyle Frese had passed to a journalist, with whom he was apparently romantically involved, appeared in at least eight different news reports, the justice department alleged in an indictment unsealed in the US district court for the eastern district of Virginia.

The DoJ did not identify the journalists or their news outlets, but said they each worked for a different outlet owned by the same parent company.

Frese “was caught red-handed disclosing sensitive national security information for personal gain”, the DoJ said in a statement. “The unauthorized disclosure of top secret information could reasonably be expected to cause exceptionally grave harm to the national security of the United States.”

2. Please review the LBN forum rules, think about what the STOP sign said when you posted, and


take a look through the posts in the LBN column on the DU Home page.

You can do it. Take a look before posting and then a quick look at the top right after posting.

It's easy.
