In a Veterans’ Day OpEd, Center for Defense Information Military Advisory Board member Lt. Col. Daniel Davis USA (ret.) argues that we must do more to protect whistleblowers in the military:
America needs men and women in military service with the moral courage to tell the truth. They carry out a valuable service to the nation by helping to keep government officials honest and by bringing to light situations that need redress which otherwise would remain buried. The least we can do for the courageous people who keep our government accountable is to provide them with legal safeguards.
The Center for Defense Information at POGO aims to secure far more effective and ethical military forces at significantly lower cost.
