I am often asked why there have not been a lot of whistle blowers coming forward regarding the events of 9/11/2001. After pointing out the fact that there are many whistle blowers I have to inform people that people who blow the whistle on government wrongdoing must often expose government secrets. This is a crime and they can go to prison for this.
Now the U.S. Supreme Court has decided that the Constitutional freedoms related to speech do not extend to government employees. Well guess what! The U.S. Supreme Court just strengthened the ability of high ranking government officials to cover up their own crimes!
We have a government in which people can commit crimes and they can declare as top secret all evidence related to those crimes. Ladies and gentleman, we have an official, fully operational governmental system designed to facilitate the abuse of power via high crimes.
You tell meâ€¦is there really a legal way of repairing our broken government? Think about it!
