From Peggy Noonan‘s Wall Street Journal blog, posted Tuesday:
Where is the media? How is it that nobody really seems to care about State Department whistleblower Aurelia Fedenisn and her quixotic quest to see that the U.S. government, or at least her little corner of it, is clean, upright and worthy of its citizens? After she went public, as her lawyer said, some investigators—too polite a word!—came to her house and tried to get her to admit she stole papers. (Just like Ellsberg!) What’s going on at the State Department? Exactly who tried to stop investigators, how high up did it go?
Fair question. But then there’s the last guy who broke a story involving the State Department. He was labeled a “co-conspirator” by the federal government.
Aurelia Fedenisn, former State Department investigator, leaked confidential documents in June regarding misconduct by officials at the State Department. She then claimed that she’s been intimidated by the federal government as a way to shut her up.
