  •  You, Greenwald and others are right (12+ / 0-)

    The Obama Administration's war on whistle blowers is a war on journalism and a war on the public's right to know. Basically it is a war on information in which the govt. claims it has every right to any and all information but the people do not enjoy those same rights. It infects our basic rights under the First, Fourth, and Fifth amendments to the Constitution.  What Holder said recently is nothing different from what the Obama Administration tried to push as the journalism shield law by parsing words so as to be able to subjectively define what is journalism and lump what they do not like under a very broad definition of treason or terrorism.  It is insidious. and it is destroying our country from within.
