Another Incredible Disappearing Obama Campaign Promise

With the Obama administration engaged in prosecuting Bradley Manning and in international bullying to get its hands on Edward Snowden for revealing information about the American government's embarrassingly criminal behavior, it is no wonder that the following Obama campaign pledge has disappeared from the Obama campaign website

Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.
