CIA sues ex-agent for book's breach of 'secrecy' 18 Oct 2010 The CIA has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against a former deep-cover agent who published a book critical of the agency without allowing CIA censors to remove large portions of the manuscript before publication.

"The book contains no classified information and I do not profit from it," Mr. Jones told The Washington Times.
