Dark Gems From The GAP Whistleblower Blog

Michael Neff turned me on to this one. The GAP Whistleblower Blog is a tremendous source for the latest in gov corruption in the Obama administration, and past admins. Yes, yes, OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. And this is just the beginning. My apologies to my Dem buddies for disconcerting them!

The ABCs of Drug Safety: Accountability, Balance, and Citizen Empowerment, which focuses on the severe problems with the current system for conducting and regulating clinical trials.

Gina Gray, who took over as the public affairs director at Arlington National Cemetery in April 2008, when she discovered that cemetery officials were attempting to impose new limits on media coverage of funerals of the Iraq war dead – even after the fallen warriors’ families granted permission for the coverage. She said that the new restrictions were wrong, that Army regulations didn’t call for such limitations, and advocated restoring full coverage. Six weeks after the media reported her efforts, she was demoted. A few weeks after this, she was fired.
