107,036. It turns out that there are whistleblowers - hundreds of them. But any attack on the establishment is met with either a full-one counter-attack that targets the credibility of the individual bringing forth the information and marginalizes the content of the message by dismissing it as the ravings of a lunatic or disgruntled employee, or it’s simply erased from public view by the very institutions tasked with investigating such activity.

93,198. How to destroy the whistleblower’s credibility: set up a committee of ‘senior scientists’ to investigate his/her misdemeanour; release the damning findings of the committee to the press but without publishing them in full; repeat this at the national level and recruit senior establishment figures to tell the media why they should not believe the whistleblower scientist.
The scientist is untrustworthy because he/she is: unreliable, too old and confused; not properly qualified; driven by ulterior motives of seeking publicity and fame; the scientist is dishonest; because he/she misappropriate others’ date; because he/she falsified some crucial data; because he/she invented/fabricated data.
The results cannot be trusted because: the design of the experiments was flawed; the methods were unsatisfactory and/or biased; inappropriate controls were used; conclusions were not supported by the results; the results were unpublished or published in a journal of low scientific standing; there are other better (but unspecified) data which contradict the results; the results are not statistically significant or obtained using poor statistics; the results are unrepresentative; therefore the study needs to be repeated with more refined design and methodology.

93,199. Can the oil companies silence one man who dares to speak the truth? His enemies began a campaign of dirty tricks. They even sent women to try to entrap him. Can one man stand up for what he believes? Chuck Hamel was about to find out. (Whistleblower & Oil) Crime Stories: The Whistleblower

93,207. Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama

85,501. They were paid so much to look the other way ... Those feeder funds were incentivised not to ask the questions. To be wilfully blind, if you will.

99,010. In 1971, whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg leaked US government files known as The Pentagon Papers, revealing that the invasion of Vietnam was based on systematic lying. Four years later, Frank Church conducted sensational hearings in the US Senate: one of the last flickers of American democracy. These laid bare the full extent of the invisible government: the domestic spying and subversion and warmongering by intelligence and ‘security’ agencies and the backing they received from big business and the media, both conservative and liberal ...
Snowden’s revelation that Washington has used Google, Facebook, Apple and other giants of consumer technology to spy on almost everyone, is further evidence of modern form of fascism – that is the ‘abyss’. Having nurtured old-fashioned fascists around the world – from Latin America to Africa and Indonesia - the genie has risen at home. Understanding this is as important as understanding the criminal abuse of technology ...
The power of truth-tellers like Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, and Edward Snowden is that they dispel a whole mythology carefully constructed by the corporate cinema, the corporate academy and the corporate media. WikiLeaks is especially dangerous because it provides truth-tellers with a means to get the truth out. This was achieved by ‘Collatoral Murder’, the cockpit video of an US Apache helicopter allegedly leaked by Bradley Manning. The impact of this one video marked Manning and Assange for state vengeance. Here were US airmen murdering journalists and maiming children in a Baghdad street, clearly enjoying it, and describing their atrocity as ‘nice’. Yet, in one vital sense, they did not get away with it; we are witnesses now, and the rest is up to us. John Pilger, article June 2013 ‘Understanding the Latest Leaks is Understanding the Rise of a New Fascism’
98,989. The critical moment in the political trial of the century was on 28 February when Bradley Manning stood and explained why he had risked his life to leak tens of thousands of official files. It was a statement of morality, conscience and truth: the very qualities that distinguish human beings. This was not deemed mainstream news in America; and were it not for Alexa O’Brien, an independent freelance journalist, Manning’s voice would have been silenced. John Pilger, article August 2013 ‘The Courage of Bradley Manning Will Inspire Others to Seize Their Moment of Truth’
98,982. The siege of Knightsbridge is both an emblem of gross injustice and a gruelling farce. For three years, a police cordon around the Ecuadorean embassy in London has served no purpose other than to flaunt the power of the state. It has cost £12 million. The quarry is an Australian charged with no crime, a refugee whose only security is the room given him by a brave South American country. His ‘crime’ is to have initiated a wave of truth-telling in an era of lies, cynicism and war.
The persecution of Julian Assange is about to flare again as it enters a dangerous stage. From August 20, three quarters of the Swedish prosecutor’s case against Assange regarding sexual misconduct in 2010 will disappear as the statute of limitations expires. At the same time Washington’s obsession with Assange and WikiLeaks has intensified. Indeed, it is vindictive American power that offers the greatest threat – as Chelsea Manning and those still held in Guantanamo can attest.
The Americans are pursuing Assange because WikiLeaks exposed their epic crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq: the wholesale killing of tens of thousands of civilians, which they covered up, and their contempt for sovereignty and international law, as demonstrated vividly in their leaked diplomatic cables. WikiLeaks continues to expose criminal activity by the US, having just published top secret US intercepts – US spies’ reports detailing private phone calls of the presidents of France and Germany, and other senior officials, relating to internal European political and economic affairs.
