True or False: How Much Do You Know About Whistleblowers?

Twitter is still censoring my account by disallowing me to post polls on the platform. The company doesn’t provide any real solutions as to how users can resolve this issue so I’m going to post my questions here.

How Much Do You Know About Whistleblowers?

Question One: Without Googling, espionage charges against Daniel Ellsberg (Pentagon Papers) were dropped because of:
a. First Amendment issue(s)
b. Lack of evidence
c. All of the above
d. None of the above

Question Two: Without Googling, Edward Snowden worked for the CIA prior to being hired by NSA contractor, Booz Allen Hamilton.

True or False?

Question Three: Without Googling, after fleeing the U.S., Edward Snowden went to the South China Morning Post and confirmed U.S. hacking in both Hong Kong and the mainland.

True or False?

Question Four: Without Googling, former CIA analyst and recruiter, John Kiriakou, was charged and convicted for:
a. Exposing the U.S. torture program during an interview
b. Leaking documents about the U.S. torture program
c. Exposing U.S. torture of Abu Zubaydah (waterboarding)
d. Both a. and c.
e. None of the above

Question Five: Without Googling, former DOJ attorney, Jesselyn Radack, was targeted with a searing, job performance review in retaliation for blowing the whistle during the John Walker Lindh case.

True or False?

Question Six: Without Googling, The DOJ/OIG targeted Jesselyn Radack with a criminal investigation in retaliation for blowing the whistle in the John Walker Lindh case.

True or False?

The purpose of these questions is to show activists just how vulnerable they are to propaganda, manufactured narratives, information operations (IO) and the media. And when I say “media,” I’m not talking about right-wing, fanatical news sites. I’m talking about media platforms, usually indie media (and organizations), that promote themselves as liberal and left-wing. In other words, media outlets and journalists that appear supportive of both WikiLeaks and whistleblowers.

It’s also meant to show that false narratives in the so-called “truth and transparency movement” are created and maintained, with the help of the media, over a long period of time, sometimes for decades. Additionally, those who go to great lengths to shape your beliefs are able to successfully re-write history by omitting and/or burying uncomfortable facts.
