The only people criminally
investigated, charged, indicted, convicted and sentenced with regard to the
U.S.-sponsored post 9/11 mass surveillance and torture regimes are myself and
John Kiriakou -- because we held up a mirror and spoke truth to power. Neither
one of us participated in, supported or approved torture or mass
And yet taking off the veil of government secrecy surrounding torture and mass surveillance has more often than not turned truth tellers and whistleblowers into turncoats and traitors by the very government engaged in criminal conduct, and then that same government burns those who would dare disclose their conduct on the stake of national security.
These actions by the government against those disclosing government wrongdoing are very troubling for the future of our own democracy, when exposing government criminality and those engaged in torture and mass surveillance is regarded by that same government as a criminal act.
We paid a very high price for our truth telling --
ringing up large legal bills, incurring massive costs and expenses plus huge
loss of income and our pensions for supporting and defending the very freedoms
and liberties that are inalienable rights for all.
We are encouraged by people informing and educating themselves to the very clear and present dangers to democracy.
Please donate generously to support us, so we can rescue and restore our rights and freedoms increasingly held hostage by the government.
