    Ex-GCHQ officer cleared over leak

    A GCHQ translator sacked for revealing a secret e-mail is cleared of an offence under the Official Secrets Act.
    Katharine Gun, 29, from Cheltenham, claimed the e-mail was from US spies asking British officers to tap phones of nations voting on war against Iraq.

    She walked free on Wednesday when the prosecution offered no evidence.

    Mrs Gun had denied committing an offence under the Official Secrets Act, arguing she was acting to prevent the "illegal war" in Iraq.
  2. So it's alright to break the official secrets act if doing it for one's own personal beliefs.
    Al Queda will be chuffed.
