Spying on Scientists: How the FDA Monitored Whistleblowers Who Raised Concerns over Radiation
I recently posted another documentary about just how deep the disgusting behavior of the FDA goes: The War on Health: The FDA’s Cult of Tyranny . If you haven’t seen this Democracy Now report yet, check it out and be horrified. The repression of information about just how much radiation we are all getting on a daily basis and from our medical procedures is off the charts. We are getting radiation through our food, we are being radiated by our cellphones, wireless networks, smartmeters and smart utilities, alarm systems, we are being radiated by the air we breathe and the water we drink and last but not least we are being radiated by our doctors and government. It’s amazing there is anyone left alive — give it another 5 years and there won’t be much left of anything. Thanks FDA.

The Food and Drug Administration has been found to have launched a massive surveillance campaign targeting its own scientists for writing letters to journalists, members of Congress and President Obama. The scientists were expressing their concern over the FDA’s approval of medical imaging devices for colonoscopies and mammograms that could endanger patients with high levels of radiation. The covert spying operation led the agency to monitor the scientists’ computers at work and at home, copying emails and thumb drives and even monitoring individual messages line by line as they were being composed in real time. The agency also created an enemies list. We’re joined by the FDA whistleblowers’ attorney, Stephen Kohn, executive director of the National Whistleblowers Center. “For the first time, we now have a glimpse into what domestic surveillance of whistleblowers looks like in this country with the modern technological developments,” Kohn says. “The agency [sought] to destroy the reputation of these whistleblowers forever.” [includes rush transcript]
