WASHINGTON Oct 17 A retired U.S. Marine Corps
general who last served as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff pleaded guilty on Monday in a federal court to making
false statements to the FBI during an investigation into leaks
of classified information.
Four-star General James Cartwright was questioned by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2012 over a book written by
New York Times reporter David Sanger, which exposed a malicious
computer software program known as "Stuxnet" designed to disrupt
Iran's nuclear program.
