Yep, you read that correctly, deep down at the heart of this data collection is Dick Cheney, and Feinstein too......

Ray McGovern, the follow up.

He's filed suit against harassment.

"The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of U.S. military veteran and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern against John Kerry, in his capacity as the Secretary of State, and against officers at George Washington University.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia three years to the date of Mr. McGovern's brutal and false arrest at GWU during a speech of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Since arrest, the PCJF has uncovered that the Department of State issued a Be On The Lookout Alert ('BOLO Alert') for Mr. McGovern which described his “considerable amount of political activism, primarily anti-war,” displayed his picture and directed law enforcement that if the then-71-year-old Mr. McGovern was encountered, “USE CAUTION, stop” and question him and contact the Department of State Diplomatic Security Command Center."

Great article on Ray McGovern. Thanks!

I also found the comments below the article, with only a couple of exceptions, to be very important.

Your welcome.

Every whistleblower doesn't make headlines.

By 2006, Friddle decided she had seen enough and contacted lawyer Julie Bracker, whose firm in Roswell, Ga., specializes in what are known as Qui Tam lawsuits, which allow private citizens to sue those who have committed fraud against the government. To incentivize whistleblowers to come forward, the law guarantees them a percentage of any money recovered.

Friddle and another former employee filed a lawsuit in 2007 against Home America Mortgage. Then, officials from the Department of Justice, FBI, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia, FHA and Freddie Mac came to interview her. She said she told them everything. And then, she waited.

In 2009, Taylor, Bean and Whitaker, the parent company, was raided by the FBI on an unrelated matter. Soon thereafter, TBW and Home America Mortgage were shuttered. - See more at: http://www.occupy.com/article/meet-comfort-friddle-whistleblower-behind-320m-mortgage-fraud-settlement#sthash.LUCCwR9Q.dpuf

Why did it take so long?

"Why did it take so long?"

Conservative, Kludged, Court systems, would be my guess.

Such things always take an incredibly long time.

Stomping on state constitutions for the good the Koch's, can happen almost immediately. If not sooner.

The original investigator has passed away, and no one noticed.
