Hmm, where are you getting the five years outside U.S. thing? I don't see it there. I see five years imprisonment. But this lawyer gets tired of looking at statutes so if it is there please point it out.

Hey Rob,
It's from the definitions subsection of the national security code:
"(4) The term ''covert agent'' means -
(A) a present or retired officer or employee of an
intelligence agency or a present or retired member of the Armed
Forces assigned to duty with an intelligence agency -
(i) whose identity as such an officer, employee, or member
is classified information, and
(ii) who is serving outside the United States or has within
the last five years served outside the United States; or" . . .
