  WASHINGTON, DC This September 18, the whistleblowers and persons of conscience will hold the fifth annual gathering on Capitol Hill. As the Nation's budget crisis continues to grow, lawmakers must look to corporate and federal whistleblowers to stop out of control spending. The united message is the nation's top priority must be to protect whistleblowers so that truth-tellers can protect the public, the public's health, and our national security.

Five years of concentrated advocacy led to this meeting. Dr. Jeffrey Wigand (aka, "The Insider") helped to found, guide and shape the International Association of Whistleblowers (IAW). Other Advisors include Coleen Rowley, Reuben Guttman and Cyrus Mehri. Our ranks are growing stronger everyday.

America knows what is said about whistleblowers. This conference is a chance to hear from the whistleblowers in their own words. A spectrum of statements include:

 

NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake, recently revealed on 60 Minutes that 9/11 could have been prevented. The IAW demands an end to counter-productive policies that make America more vulnerable to future attacks:

 

"If recent history is any guide, coming forward with the truth and blowing the whistle on evidence of gross waste, fraud, abuse, wrongdoing, corruption, malfeasance, illegalities or dangers to public health and safety within public or private institutions is increasingly viewed as a criminal act. In so doing, whistleblowers not only risk their personal lives and professional careers they are often relentlessly and maliciously dismissed, victimized, hounded and even prosecuted out of reprisal, retribution, and retaliation for speaking truth to power - a clear and distinct 'shoot the messenger' syndrome.  Whistleblowers are often the only witness to wrongdoing where they work. Existing laws are simply not sufficient to protect whistleblowers.   http://www.whistleblower.org/blog/31/1128

NSA whistleblower Kirk Wiebe vigorously supports the IAW message:

 

Whistleblowers are not a threat to government or to any organization, rather they seek to ensure integrity of service to the people they serve. The IAW Conference provides an excellent platform for whistleblowers to find their voice and to meet one another in a positive environment of mutual support.
