The only thing that gets me is when they describe John Harrison as an ex-Starfleet employee.
I'm pretty sure that's how Abrams refered to Harrison as while he was in Japan. The Empire writer probaby read that and put it in the article.

Not the "Ex" part.

Here is what Abrams said in Japan:
His name is John Harrison and he is sort of an average – that is what makes him so scary – he is just an average guy who works in an organization called Starfleet, and he turns against the group because he has got this back-story and this kind of amazing secret agenda. After two very violent attacks, one in London and one in the US, our characters have to go after this guy and apprehend him. And it is a far more complicated and difficult thing then they ever anticipated. “Into Darkness” is very much about how intense it gets and really what they are up against.

Unless, of course, he could be considered an "ex-member" of Starfleet as soon as he does whatever dastardly thing it is that he does.
