Re: "They are just storing it"

said by StuartMW:

William Binney has been giving interviews etc to just about any outlet that listens. His interview with RT.com was just another.

Then he was an unwitting pawn, and incredibly stupid to inject himself between the U.S. and Russia. He has quite a lot to lose personally, and it casts doubt on his role as simple "whistleblower." More like Russian spy and misinformation technician.

Well you could just Google "William Binney" and see what he's been saying for a long time.

Or you could dismiss his as a "Russian spy and misinformation technician."

There's another question to consider here, though... who is the biggest ongoing threat to Mr.Binney (personally) at the moment? Putin's regime and RT.com or the US government and its letter agencies? For a whistle-blower coming from the black world, life and its choices can be extremely harsh and even upside down. Unless and until one finds himself in a similar situation, he can barely conceive of the personal dilemma and tough choices confronting him.

Or I could passively insult your intelligence.

I would have expected a little bit more situational awareness and "intelligence" from someone who worked as a spy for 40 years.

And certainly helping an oppressive government that is busy propping up Venezuela, Syria, and Iran is a logical course of action for this person who believes his own government is going to... what, kill him? How do you think that would look?

Right, but whatever. It's now OK to betray your own country. Up is down, evil is good, and all that. Carry on.

So your position is that since William Binney said the same thing recently to RT.com that he's been saying for about 11 years he's a traitor and evil? Sorry but I don't see the logic in that.

If what Binney asserts is correct, which is worse: to betray the political engines and their operators that he believes are actually betraying the citizens of the nation, or to betray the citizens by quietly submitting to the oath he took in better times and burying what he knows? Who then is the patriot? That is the core dilemma for a whistle-blower in such a situation.

As far as what his own government might do to him, you truly have no idea! There are many things worse than death, with respect to making one's life a living Hell. edited to add: To the honest whistle-blower, their only real hope is that via publicity, the issue will erupt into a full-blown scandal such that the wrongs get righted and the people behind the wrong-doing get removed from their positions of authority. Only then can they find any hope of relief from the threat of personal repercussions.
