Ever since Edward Snowden released information of NSA montioring of United States citizens in the efforts to combat terror, The United States has been reeling on a PR spin campaign to distract Americans from the grim truth that we now live in Orwell's 1984. The media rather than investigate the scope of the NSA's monitoring, has resorted to playing the game of Where in The World Is Carmen Sandieog (I mean Edward Snowden). The US government, revoked Snowden's passport without a trial, and Snowden is reportedly somewhere in a Russian airport awaiting Ecuador to either accept or deny his request for asylum. Ecuador is having difficulty with this request as he is not on Ecuadorian soil.

evan vokes, a whistle blower, who was also an engineer at transCanada, has the National Energy Board of canada up transCanada's arse!
vokes tried every approach he could through the company's chain of command, using transCanada protocol. he climbed all the way up the ladder wagging his precautionary tail, all the way to ceo russ girling's office, and after having his concerns for safety in regards to his company's pipelines being brushed off by the company he worked for, and being severly distressed at their ambivalence, he went on "stress" leave in november of 2011. vokes took his leave for health related issues in regards to his concern for what he had witnessed first hand on the job. by the end of march, he finally met with canada's National Energy Board, to discuss the list of infractions and concerns, he had in regards to transCanada's practices on their pipelines, and on may 1st, voke's filed the official papework as a complainant with the NEB. on may 8th, vokes was relieved of his position as an engineer for transCanada, when he was summarily fired. this and worse is often the fate of those who have the strength to step forward into the role of truthsayer.

Newly-released documents show that the Food and Drug Administration targeted whistleblowers for special surveillance and monitoring. KBOO reporter Sue Supriano spoke with Stephen Kohn, the executive director of The National Whistleblowers Center and the attorney for six FDA whistleblowers who filed a lawsuit after being targeted. In a recent statement, Mr. Kohn called the monitoring by FDA unconstitutional, saying it contrasted the company’s otherwise neutral surveillance policy. 3:55 minutes (3.59 MB)
Coleen Rowley, one of three whistleblowers chosen as persons of the year for 2002 by Time Magazine, will speak about her experiences in the FBI and broader issues of official surveillance and massive data collection. When Coleen Rowley was an FBI agent in Minneapolis, her office got a lead just three weeks before 9/11 that a known extremist had paid $8.000 for lessons to fly a Boeing 747. Her office arrested him, but, her superiors would not allow a full investigation. In a May, 2002 memo to FBI Director Robert Mueller, Rowley brought some of the pre 9-11 lapses to light, calling his defense of the agency a "rush to judgment to protect the FBI at all costs." Several weeks later Rowley testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee about problems facing the FBI and the intelligence community, and her memo to Mueller in connection with the Joint Intelligence Committee's Inquiry led to a two-year Department of Justice Inspector General investigation.
