The War on Whistleblowers

From BrassCheckTV:



Whistleblowing, or exposing government misconduct, is the at very
heart of the First Amendment. As John F. Kennedy said, "The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society."

During his 2008 Presidential campaign Obama expressed the need to
enact better whistleblower protections and even claimed that he was
preparing a federal law to protect those who disclose suspect
practices.

That's not what we got. Instead, we got a war on whistleblowers, and a war on journalists.

Now, now, now, Anna,
He DID - and IS - making better whistleblower protections...but just for those who get their "whistles blown!"

As far as protecting those who blow the whistle, again, he's just making sure none of those who had their whistle blown can harm the "blower" by incarcerating them. See? Simple protection for whistle blowers!

Nothing personal...just semantics.

Silly girl. And you and I thought he meant something else.
