Today on America Weekend, I talked with documentarian Robert Greenwald about his new movie, “The War On Whistleblowers,” in which he takes a look at the high price paid for speaking out. The film includes four whistleblowers and several investigative journalists who talk about how much more difficult it has become to tell the truth about what’s happening inside our national security state. I asked Robert about the blowback these men and women get from a system that doesn’t want its secrets shared, even when they endanger the lives of Americans at war. We also discussed how the Obama administration, despite its promise of more transparency, has not only tried to keep more secrets, but also punished some of these whistleblowers under the Espionage Act.
Greenwald is making copies of “The War On Whistleblowers” available for free on DVD. To get one, click here.
