The events that have occurred during this last week have been beyond anything I have ever witnessed. This President must really be either incredulously stupid or he just doesn’t care.

Last Tuesday Peter B Collins and I interviewed Mr. Stephen M. Kohn of National Whistleblower Center on his recently released book, corporate and government whistleblowers, whistleblower laws, and upcoming legislation.

However, we decided to prepare the following brief clip which covers Mr. Kohn’s powerful response to the Manning case, and share it with you right away.
