BLOWING THE WHISTLE ON A ‘WHISTLE BLOWER’

*

I was shocked beyond belief yesterday when I read in the New York Times that a so-called ‘progressive’ blogger is the one apparently responsible for blowing the whistle on a so called whistle blower.
*
Adding to my shock was the fact that Shamai Leibowitz was ever employed by the FBI in any position. He has been an activist for many years in Israel, has been outspoken for Palestinian rights and is one of the most respected lawyers here. He is the grandson of a known leftist, Yeshayahu Leibowitz. Surely the FBI was aware of his background before they hired him as a translator.
*
Leibowitz’s ‘involvement’ in any wrongdoings was brought to light just over a year ago when he was arrested…
A former contract linguist for the Federal Bureau of Investigation was sentenced to 20 months in prison Monday for leaking classified documents to an internet blogger, the US Justice Department said.
*
Leibowitz acknowledged handing over five FBI documents concerning US communication intelligence activities to the blogger, who was not identified. The blogger then published information from the documents.
*
The above is taken from THIS Ynet report.
*
I have said dozens of times on this site NOT TO TRUST ANYONE YOU MEET ON THE INTERNET. There are many out there who are not who you might think they are. Leibowitz, himself said at his sentencing  that it was “a one-time mistake that happened to me when I worked at the F.B.I. and saw things which I considered were violation of the law, and I should not have told a reporter about it.”
*
He definitely should not have told this particular ‘reporter’ about it. Richard Silverstein seems to have a tendency to talk (type) before he thinks. When he published the information on his blog that Leibowitz handed over to him was he aware of the fact that this could lead to a prison term for Leibowitz?
*
*
Mr. Silverstein took the blog posts he had written based on Mr. Leibowitz’s material off his site after the criminal investigation two years ago. But he was able to retrieve three posts from April 2009 from his computer and provided them to The New York Times.
*
Why would Silverstein retrieve those deleted posts and hand them over to the Times? The only answer I can come up with is that he enjoys being in the limelight, even if it might mean a prison term for a so-called ‘friend’. I occasionally glance at Silverstein’s Blog, he is an ‘Internet Opportunist’ in the true sense of the word. In Yiddish terminology, he is nothing more than a Yenta, far from actually being a ‘reporter’ as he claims to be. In his own words FROM: I am a progressive (critical) Zionist. I support a two state solution to the conflict involving Israeli withdrawal roughly to pre-67 borders (with some adjustments) and an internationally guaranteed peace agreement with the Palestinians.  Progressive zionist??? That’s a new one to me…
*
Bottom line in this is what I have maintained for years … DO NOT TRUST ANYONE YOU MEET ON THE INTERNET.
Richard Silverstein, for one, has proven that he himself is not to be trusted.
*
Kudos to Shamai Leibowitz for his years of dedication to Peace and Justice!

*

And a BIG SHAME ON YOU RICHARD SILVERSTEIN for trying to ‘cash in’ on his good work!
*
Needless to say, the zioright is also ‘cashing in’ on this situation as can be seen HERE.

    A progressive zionist?! huh?

    Not to get into semantics but isnt that akin to saying a person is a progressive nazi? Or an itty bit ku klux klan?

    I didnt realize fascism had fringe elements. lol.
    The problem in the world today is people are just not into history. They cherry pick ideologies and then apply them without the foggiest clue about historical content.

    As sad as it sounds, I wish the annunaki would hurry up with deluge 2.0
