 What’s at Stake:   Bottom Line:  In resisting warming and wars and all genocides, extinctions, corruption, crime, cover-ups, the first line of defense is exposing lies and telling truth.

By Gerald Sloan (2016)

In my half-sleep I channel memos 
from entities hinting at eugenics,
veiled proposals for the disposal
of those deemed undesirable,
ethnicities or individuals  

who didn't get a cheat-sheet
for the pop quiz on Consciousness,
an endless stream of refugees
created by the policies
of those who wrote the memos.

“Traitor,” A Whistleblower’s Tale
Posted on Apr.16, 2012 in Secrecy by Steven Aftergood
Jesselyn Radack’s memoir Traitor: The Whistleblower and the American Taliban presents the moving story of a young attorney’s unexpected encounter with official misconduct, and the excruciating ordeal that ensued when she decided to challenge it.
In 2001, Ms. Radack was a Justice Department attorney and specialist in legal ethics.  In response to an official inquiry, she advised that the newly captured John Walker Lindh, the so-called “American Taliban,” should not be interrogated without an attorney present — which he then was anyway.  When Department officials publicly denied having received any such legal advice, and even destroyed evidence to the contrary, she exposed the deception.
Ms. Radack was not looking for a fight, but only to do the right thing. For her trouble, she was forced out of her Justice Department position, put under criminal investigation, fired from her subsequent job, reported to the state bar, and put on the “no fly” list.   MORE:  “Traitor” 

Some articles in Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (NWADG) 2017 and early 2018.  At least the NADG reminds us occasionally of the tribulations of whistleblowers.   The NADG strongly supports Arkansas’ Freedom of Information laws, and we must suppose it supports investigative journalism, though it does not employ an investigative team..
