Watch CN Live! with Katherine Gun, Daniel Ellsberg, Scott Ritter, Ray McGovern and John Wight on whistleblowing, the Iraq War, impeachment and the British political crisis.
Katharine Gun, the GCHQ whistleblower who tried to stop the invasion of Iraq and whose story is now the subject of a major motion picture, “Official Secrets,” joined legendary whistleblower Dan Ellsberg for an in-depth discussion about what it means to blow the whistle to try to stop bloodshed.
Scott Ritter, a former UN chief weapons inspector looking for WMD in Iraq before the 2003 invasion, who also opposed the war, provided his eye-opening insights into that period, as well as his thoughts on the CIA “whistleblower,” questioning whether he had contacts with Obama CIA Director John Brennan.
Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst who used to enter the White House to brief the president, also spoke about the CIA “whistleblower,” revealing that McGovern turned down the very same job in the White House because of a political conflict of interest, which apparently did not bother this “whistleblower.”
We also got an incisive update on the political crisis rocking Great Britain from Scottish journalist John Wight. All on CN Live! with your hosts Elizabeth Vos and Joe Lauria. You can watch the replay here:
