Sorry in advance, but Edward Snowden has the most beautiful big brown eyes, for a whistleblower.
Hi fern: and as the ancient Greeks said, “The eyes are the mirror of the soul.”
Truth is a beautiful thing. : )
The Government should not and cannot allow anonymous accusations in a legislative hearing. It smells of partisan politics. Legal whistle blowers should be protected not by identity, but rather by law. A primary reason we have illegal whistle blowers is because we fail to protect legal ones and they fear persecution. Not to be confused with leakers like Comey, Brennan, etc… who illegally leak to the press in order to manipulate public opinion. Had William Binney’s legal whistle blowing been handled properly, Snowden would not have gone the other route.
A good article, but there is something suspicious about these Ukraine whistleblowers. So far, in my view, these are simply 2 more anonymous figures who told us what we already knew, that DJT is a crook like so many of his predecessors.
Give me Snowden, Ellsberg, Kiriakou and Drake any day.
