Just over a decade ago, Coleen Rowley of the FBI outed her superior, Dave Frasca of the Radical Fundamentalist Unit, as a probable 9/11 conspirator. Amazingly, Time Magazine actually gave her the recognition she deserved, by making her Woman of the Year for 2002! (This was before the mainstream media had fully internalized its marching orders to stay away from any and all truthful information about 9/11.)
Coleen's ex-FBI career has included plenty of activism. She even ran for Congress in 2006, inspiring my own run two years later. (The Democratic Party refused to offer any significant funding help - just as it refused to help Dr. Bob Bowman's pro-9/11-truth campaign that same year, effectively denying him a congressional seat by making his race close enough for the Republican incumbent to steal.)
2nd hour: Paul Craig Roberts is an insider with a mind-bogglingly impressive resumé: Architect of Reaganomics, editor of the Wall Street Journal, inducted into the French Legion d'Honneur, he currently is a John M. Olin Fellow at the Institute for Political Economy at Stanford University. And that's just a few of the highlights. But most importantly (in my opinion) he is virtually the only op-ed writer in America who has responded appropriately and eloquently to the off-the-scale outrages that have been visited upon us since September 11th, 2001. As I strive for excellence in op-ed writing, Dr. Roberts' work is the benchmark that I measure myself against. So I was honored when he plugged my recent article on the missing 1,116 9/11 victims with high praise & an email blast.
And speaking of op-ed excellence, Gordon Duff of Veterans Today may be the most brilliantly prolific editorializer working today - as well as the most influential, thanks to his development of the Veterans Today platform. Like Rowley and Roberts, Duff is an ex-insider whistleblower - if I told you which agency he worked for they'd have to kill us ; - )
