A judge on Thursday sentenced a British civil servant to six months for leaking a classified memo about a meeting between Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W. Bush, in breach of the Official Secrets Act. David Keogh, 50, a government communications officer, was found guilty of "making a damaging disclosure" by passing on the secret memo about April 2004 talks between the two leaders in which Bush purportedly referred to bombing the Arab television station Al-Jazeera.
