With all the talk of Edward Snowden, many would not have heard the name General James Cartwright, who is quite possibly the most high-ranking, high-profile whistleblower in the history of the United States, who is the Obama administration’s latest victim by way of the 1917 Espionage Act.
As we pointed out earlier this week, Cartwright [left] was regarded as ‘Obama’s General’ and chief military adviser, but he fell foul of K Street and war financiers, after blowing the whistle on the highly illegal, and potentially dangerous, ‘Operation Olympic Games’, which planted the infamous Stuxnet and Flame viruses in Iranian civilian nuclear facilities in an attempt to destroy their energy program. It was an act of war by any other name. He leaked the story to New York Times reported last July, and has since been indicted for espionage.
Now the criminal institution who calls itself the ‘US Department of Justice’ (DOJ), has begun the process of ruining the four star general’s career and his reputation built on decades of service to the American people. Many believe that because of its implication in damaging the image of the state of Israel, Gen. Cartwright’s case has been conveniently buried under the Snowden media avalanche, in the hope that the American people will not be able to identify or sympathise with the plight of this apparent American hero.
Ironic that the DOJ – who itself was caught illegal seizing the phone records and other data of the Associated Press (AP) news agency- are the ones dispensing justice on this landmark case. As a result of AG Eric Holder’s criminal racketeering, longtime sources have since stopped talking to the AP in response to the Obama administration’s illegal secret seizure of their phone records, said AP head Gary Pruitt at the National Press Club.
In attempt to take PR cover against more revelations of the NSA and the FBI spying on its own US military brass, FBI agents claim to have identified the former US Marine General ‘without resorting to a secret subpoena of the phone records of New York Times reporters’ – which itself is about the only true and honest statement spoken in Washington regarding domestic spying. Of course there were no secret subpoenas – we know they can tap our phones whenever they choose without any warrant.
