Decrying his conviction and prison sentence as "an outrageous miscarriage of justice," the wife of CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling was joined Wednesday by prominent activists and transparency advocates in calling for Sterling's immediate pardon and release.
Does anyone remember supporting Obama because of bush's human rights abuses? Is Obama doing any better particularly as regards whistleblowers? These questions are rhetorical by the way.
a bass ackwards world, isn't it? when the ones with integrity and courage speak truth to power are the ones who wind up behind bars--generally speaking. the upside is that slowly, more and more people are waking up. i just wish it were happening faster. I'm grateful for those like Sterling who take such great risk for the sake of transparency.
"a bass ackwards world, isn't it? when the ones with integrity and
courage speak truth to power are the ones who wind up behind bars"
you are spot on. and consider the fact that those who use science, evidence, logic and reason to refute the 9/11 report are considered crazy nut jobs while those claiming physical impossibilities to be true are viewed as rationale, down-to-earth truth tellers.
please watch this video on Jeffery if you haven't already:
