This is a chilling little speech by Jesselyn Radick, a Bush administration whistleblower who was harassed aggressively by the Department of Justice, on how matters have gotten much worse for government whistleblowers under Obama, both in numbers and the ferocity of the retaliation.
Attorney Jesslyn Radack: More whistle blowers have been charged during Obama admin. then all other presidents together (speech at Sam Adams Awards).
Jesselyn Radack was the Justice Dept attorney who stood up for the Constitutional rights of John Walker Lindh, a young U.S. citizen captured in Afghanistan and widely denigrated as the "American Taliban." Lindh became the first American to be tortured by Americans there. Radack revealed Lindh had not been allowed a lawyer and other rights. The Justice Department then made Racack a target of a criminal investigation and put her on the "No-Fly" List. She is now the Human Rights Director for the Government Accountability Project.
