Whistleblower General Cartwright: demonized by a criminal US government

RELATED: Beyond Snowden: US General Cartwright has been indicted for espionage

21st Century Wire says…

Washington’s attack on the free press continues, this time in an effort silence the country’s highest-ever ranking whistleblower.

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.


GEN. CARTWRIGHT: Did the right thing – but is treated like a criminal by a criminal government.

As we pointed out earlier this week, Cartwright 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.

All this, from a US government that does not even have a moral leg to stand – as America sits back and watches the night of the long knives take place right before their eyes.

Gen. James Cartwright took an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution which is what he clearly did in service to the American people, but he did not take an oath to protect and defend the interests of Barack Obama, or the state of Israel.

Make no mistake about it, the US is engaged in a war on whistleblowing, and its ultimate goal is the prevent the press from being able expose high level crimes carried out by those in positions of power. The result will be pure tyranny, so its incumbant on moral citizens to stand up and support the efforts of whistleblowers and what is left of the free press.

The time is approaching when all Americans will have to choose their side on this issue…

The four-star general who headed the reported cyber-attack by American and Israeli hackers on an Iranian nuclear site is under a DoJ investigation over leaking the details of the operation to the press, reports NBC News.

Retired Marine Gen. James ‘Hoss’ Cartwright, who was deputy chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff between 2007 and 2011, was the one responsible for the ‘Olympic Games’, a massive attack on Iranian uranium enrichment facilities conducted under the Bush and the Obama administrations, the New York Times reported last July.

At the time the newspaper broke details of the top secret operation, including collaboration of Israeli hackers in development of the Stuxnet computer worm, which was used to infect Iranian computer networks and damage hundreds of centrifuges at the Natanz enrichment facility.

The leak caused outrage in the Congress, as some Republican politicians alleged that it was sanctioned high in the Obama administration to bolster his national security record ahead of the 2012 election campaign.

Legal sources told NBC News that the FBI investigating the leak zeroed on Cartwright, once the second-highest ranking officer in the Pentagon, as the source that provided the newspaper with the sensitive information. Agents identified the former general without resorting to a secret subpoena of the phone records of New York Times reporters, the report says.

Cartwright, 63, received a target letter informing him that he’s under the investigation, but so far the DoJ hasn’t made a final decision on whether to charge him, according to the sources.

Cartwright and his lawyer did not comment to NBC.

If indicted, Cartwright would join Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden and six others charged under the 1917 Espionage Act by the Obama administration. The current US government has invoked the law more than all previous administrations combined.
