4/23 Robert Greenwald: Exposing The War On Whistleblowers

April 23, 2013

On today’s show filmmaker Robert Greenwald explained why the Obama Administration had taken such a harsh attitude toward whistleblowers, how whistleblowers saved soldiers lives in Iraq, how Lockheed Martin made defective ships for the Coast Guard, the self preservation instincts of the National Security State, why CIA torturers go free while the agent that exposed torture is in prison and why whistleblowers have more opportunity and the National Security State has more room to monitor people.

On The Better Half: the problem with the phrase weapons of mass destruction, Americans get more concerned about the erosion of civil liberties, The George Bush “Freedom Institute” opens, Mark Sanford whines about having a tough week and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
