Like Manning, Gary McKinnon still faces the threat of long-term imprisonment. McKinnon, a computer whiz, hacked into US military computers from his home in Scotland in 2002, and was later accused of perpetrating “the biggest computer hack of all time.” (The US is still trying to extradite McKinnon from the UK.)
Gary McKinnon's case has been under-reported in the mainstream media, and when it is reported, McKinnon is usually discredited as a conspiracy nut suffering from Asberger's Syndrome. Such reporting, ironically, serves the interest of McKinnon's defense team, which is trying to get him off by playing for sympathy and downplaying the significance of his hacking.
In fact, McKinnon is a planetary patriot who allegedly sought, and found, evidence of official US complicity in the 9/11 attacks, as well as evidence that the US military and NASA are suppressing zero-point energy technology. (Those who doubt that 9/11 was an inside job, or that zero-point energy is real, should google “WTC-7 smoking gun” and “Disclosure Project,” and read Nick Cook's The Hunt for Zero Point.)
An even more important whistleblower is ex-CIA asset Susan Lindauer. Though Sibel Edmonds and Colleen Rowley have gotten more publicity, America's most dangerous female whistleblower may be Lindauer, who personally witnessed and participated in the CIA's detailed foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks. Lindauer has testified that her CIA handler, Dr. Richard Fuisz, repeatedly discussed with her the forthcoming attacks in Lower Manhattan during the months before 9/11. And on 9/11 itself, Lindauer says, Fuisz began screaming uncontrollably about “the goddamned Israelis” while watching the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers on live television.
In 2005 and 2006, Susan Lindauer was indefinitely detained under the Patriot Act. She was locked in solitary confinement for a year at Carswell Air Force Base in retaliation for her attempts to blow the whistle on 9/11 and the 9/11-triggered wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. Rather than assassinating her, the 9/11 criminals in the US government attempted to kill her credibility by deeming her “mentally disturbed.”
Gwenyth Todd, a former high-level White House and military advisor, is another brave American whistleblower who has been smeared to prevent her message from being heard. She stopped a 2006 neocon plot to stage a false flag attack in Bahrain intended to trigger war on Iran, and had to flee for her life to Australia. Ms. Todd revealed this week on my radio show that she has had the misfortune of working with Israeli spy Richard Clarke, the former “terror czar” of the Clinton and Bush administrations; Todd agrees with historian Webster Tarpley and others that Clarke may have been the architect and controller of the 9/11 false-flag events.

Another 9/11 whistleblower, Barry Jennings, was not as lucky as Todd and Lindauer. Jennings was a witness to the pre-demolition explosions that gutted the interior of World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11, before either of the Towers had collapsed. His testimony helped falsify the official story of what happened to WTC-7. In August 2008, on the eve of publication of NIST's long-overdue, utterly ridiculous report crediting the demolition of WTC-7 to small office fires, Jennings was smeared by the BBC, and (almost simultaneously) assassinated by unknown parties. There is no official cause of death, and private detectives will not investigate the case for fear of endangering themselves and their families.
All of the above whistleblowers have suffered severe consequences for publicizing US government secrets. The government is trying to dissuade others from following in their footsteps.
But that “government” no longer has any legitimacy. It was complicit in the murder of almost 3,000 Americans on September 11th, 2001. It has waged two criminal wars of aggression, and abolished the Bill of Rights - the heart of the US Constitution. It is no longer a government, it is a criminal syndicate. And 99% of its “secrets” are classified to deceive the American people, not foreign enemies.
