More Insiders are Feeling the need to Speak Out – a Good sign.
Two stories caught my eye/ear recently and I wonder if there is a trend starting. Many of us view the forces behind events like 9/11 and various unjustified wars as being blatant evil… and I think this realization is driving more and more folks to speak out. Here are two examples of people who are willing to speak openly of the, “intelligence” lies that led up to the Iraq war;
Go to the 1:50 mark if you want to jump;
“I used to be head of the MCO (?) unit that monitored Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. I know for certain… I can tell you that they knew there weren’t any. It wasn’t a mistake. It was a lie.”
And of course there was this story;
You need to know, for example, that accusations of a major Russian “invasion” of Ukraine appear not to be supported by reliable intelligence. Rather, the “intelligence” seems to be of the same dubious, politically “fixed” kind used 12 years ago to “justify” the U.S.-led attack on Iraq. We saw no credible evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq then; we see no credible evidence of a Russian invasion now.

I don’t even have to squint hard to see the pattern : ). I hope we see more of this. Maybe we can use this thread to collect examples of insiders speaking out.. speaking out to power.
I am also encouraged by the courage and integrity of those speaking out. I think there is great value in it, as an article from Brandon Smith from Alt Market nicely captured (I saw it on http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-09-04/why-independence-so-frightening-some-people )
"The point is, the fight for liberty is not a follower's game. It is a fight that begins with individuals taking individual measures first and foremost, and if anything, inspiring others through their actions, not demanding fealty for themselves, or their pet strategies." [italics mine]
I know that I have been truly awed and inspired by the courage of those who have spoken out. I think the more the silence against speaking out gets broken, the more others will be encouraged and inspired to speak out as well.
A whistleblower within the UK government whom they tried to discredit and they failed. A true hero over here in Scotland.
I would like to include Gary Webb in this thread, a tribute to those who have spoken out. The very existence of this movie of his Dark Alliance series I interpret as an indicator that there is a faction of the deep state and the news media with integrity. I take the open discussion of this "darkness" as a good sign.

Democrats and the MSM, who have long been content to worship The Golfer in Chief, are starting to speak up to oppose and criticize He Who Must Not Be Criticized.
A top German Journalist and Editor Dr. Udo Ulfkatte has just gone public with some shocking admissions. He basically admitted what all of us who read the alternative media have known for a long time – the entire mainstream media is totally FAKE!
He went into a very detailed talk in this video and spilled the beans about everything! He talked about how the CIA gets control over all of the major journalists. He is sick of the lying and decided to go public with everything he knows. He’s already had 3 heart attacks and decided he didn’t care anymore about what they would do to him!
