(RussiaToday) – The Obama administration has the worst track record when it comes to prosecuting whistleblowers. Obama once claimed he’d work hard to have a transparent government, but many have faced retaliation for revealing controversial government information. One of the most startling whistleblowing cases is Sibel Edmonds, Iranian born former FBI translator, who has been called the “most gagged woman in history.”
She waited 340 days for FBI clearance of her memoir but finally decided to release it on her own, without any redactions or government approval. Her book gives explosive allegations that indict multiple levels of the government of traitorous deception and cover up the highest levels of government. Edmonds, founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, joins Abby Martin in the RT studio to discuss.
