RT (Russia Today) talks with Jesselyn Radack, 2011 Sam Adams Award winner & the attorney of Edward Snowden & Bill Binney.
Wekipedia states that Jesselyn Radack is a former ethics adviser to the United States Department of Justice who came to prominence as a whistleblower after she disclosed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) committed what she believed to be an ethics violation in their interrogation of John Walker Lindh (the “American Taliban” captured during the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan) without an attorney present, and alleged that the Department of Justice attempted to suppress that information. The Lindh case was the first major terrorism prosecution after 9/11.
Her experience is chronicled in her memoir, TRAITOR: The Whistleblower and the “American Taliban”.
She is a national security and human rights attorney, known for her defense of whistleblowers, journalists, and hacktivists.
William Binney is a former highly placed intelligence official with the United States National Security Agency (NSA) turned whistleblower who resigned on October 31, 2001, after more than 30 years with the agency.
He was a high-profile critic of his former employers during the George W. Bush administration.
Binney continues to speak out during Barack Obama’s presidency about the NSA’s data collection policies, and continues interviews in the media regarding his experiences and his views on communication intercepts by governmental agencies of American citizens. In a legal case, Binney has testified in an affidavit that the NSA is in deliberate violation of the U.S. Constitution.
Russia Today gives its tenacious reporting on issues where the U.S. must play defense.
RT: “The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s extensive use of torture gives a new meaning to the term ‘shock and awe.’ Obama’s words ‘We tortured some folks’ is a gross understatement. Will anyone ever be punished for these crimes? CrossTalking with Fred Fleitz, Ray McGovern and Amy Goodman.”
