Straw on camel's back

Number Six posted an interesting diary about straws piling on the camel's back, or giving Dubya enough rope to hang himself.

What I think needs to start happening, and I think it's begun, is whistleblowers need to come forward.

Check out the story of the CIA agent who claims he was fired for refusing to falsify intelligence regarding WMD.

I'm sure there's more like this agent out there, in every government department: Homeland Security, Defense, Energy, etc.

These men and women now need to obtain good representation by an attorney and come forward with their stories.

Little by little, inch by inch, this house of cards will eventually fall if enough people come forward.  Each person adds a straw to the proverbial camel's back.  Too many people know something, and are afraid to come forward.

Please do it for your country.  Get a lawyer, write down all you know, contact the media, etc.  The more people know about it, the better protected you are.
