One of the first things President Barrack H. Obama did when he took office for his second term was to create the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) allegedly to protect those in industry and government as to encourage disclosure of illegal, immoral and dangerous practices.
Unfortunately, those that have stepped up and spoke out have been severely prosecuted for speaking out against not just GE practices, but medical, financial and general governmental abuses. It is now clear that the whistleblower laws were created to weed out and ensnare whistleblowers not protect them. Those that have spoken out have received jail sentences and loss of job. (The number of those in government work speaking out as dropped precipitously as word got around).
Whether you’d like to believe it or not, we all are considered, “human resources” by the wealthy elite. The soldiers, who give their lives for what they believe are heroic causes, are given Dog tags because they are “sold to die” as dogs in service for their Masters, truth be told, not sold.
Jeffrey Sterling, one of the most recent victims of the U.S. government’s war on whistleblowers, may be at risk of dying in a Colorado prison. In an interview published Tuesday in The Colorado Independent, the wife of the CIA whistleblower warned that his health is failing due to inadequate medical care at FCI Englewood, the federal prison where he is serving a sentence of three-and-a-half years. “I’m concerned my husband may die,” Holly Sterling told the Independent’s Corey Hutchins. “I’m extremely concerned.”In May 2015, Jeffrey Sterling was convicted on nine felony charges, including seven charges of violating the Espionage Act, for revealing information about Operation Merlin, a secret CIA operation carried out under President Bill Clinton to undermine Iran’s nuclear program.
