    The diarist is pointing out how we are continually being lied to and how the whistleblowers are taking the brunt of it. She tries to stop these things from happening..that's not failure by any measure Sir!

    The false dichotomy you wish to utilize serves only one purpose (from where I'm standing) to keep people from connecting the dots.

    Whistleblowers have said "outrageous" things, but that would be because our government is doing outrageous things! Things that go beyond the limited authorities we granted them.

    What most people have a conception of is truly immaterial...we need the facts or we cannot judge our employees correctly.

    Without facts we cannot hold them accountable.

    You may wish for the facts to remain hidden for "national security"...I do not...if there is a true threat to this nation that we all should be made aware of it...

    What we've witnessed over the past decade is that the threat is not from some boogieman in a cave...but coming from our government itself.

    If our government doesn't want bad things said about it, then they have one choice...don't do bad things...

    Amazing how that works!
