Retired U.S. general pleads guilty to lying to FBI in 'Stuxnet' leak case

WASHINGTON, Oct 17 (Reuters) - 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.
