Whistleblowers are an important sector of society. Without them we wouldn’t know many of the important things we do now; when whistleblowers reveal classified or unpopular information, “it creates more transparency and reveals the true intentions for secrecy” 1 which often fall under the justification of “national security” or are just the result of basic greed.
With that in mind, check out the list below of the 10 of the most important whistleblowers of our time.
People are divided on Edward Snowden, a former intelligence contractor for multiple agencies (mainly the NSA) but my editor thinks he’s a patriot. He’s best known for leaking very sensitive information proving the existence of clandestine Black Budget operations, exposing the NSA’s mass surveillance program that spanned across the world. If you haven’t seen the movie, I would highly suggest it.
According to Snowden:
The Five Eyes alliance is sort of an artifact of the post World War II era where the Anglophone countries are the major powers banded together to sort of co-operate and share the costs of intelligence gathering infrastructure. . . .
What the result of this was over decades and decades what sort of a supra-national intelligence organisation that doesn’t answer to the laws of its own countries. . . .
They not only share information, the reporting of results from intelligence, but they actually share the tools and the infrastructure they work together against joint targets in services and there’s a lot of danger in this.2

Sibel Edmonds is a former FBI translator and founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC). In 2002 she received a lot of attention after accusing a colleague of covering up illicit activity involving Turkish nationals, which included serious security breaches and cover-ups, alluding to intelligence that was deliberately suppressed.
But recently, “she’s been outspoken about various issues that plague the global elite, like pedophilia and false flag terrorism, letting people know that terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS are tools of the Western military alliance, used to push for the ‘terror war industry.’”3
Thomas Drake leaked information about the NSA’s mass surveillance program before Snowden ever did. After 9/11, he blew the whistle on the surveillance operation that was spying on American citizens (something the mainstream media- a tool of the global elite- try to justify as a national security issue).
Drake informed the world that the military and intelligence industrial complex had become obsessed in their mission, thereby trumping the rights of not only American citizens but the global citizenry, as well. Although he attempted to go through legal channels and whistleblower protection law, when it didn’t work he reached out to a reporter at the Baltimore Sun to share his story and thankfully avoided spending 40 years in prison.
“William Binney is a 36-year NSA veteran who became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he helped make, called “ThinThread,” were being used to spy on Americans: ‘At least 80% of fibre optic cables globally go via the US, this is no accident and allows the US to view all communication coming in. At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US. The NSA lies about what it stores. . . . The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control.’”4
Robert David Steele
Steele is the second-highest ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence and a former CIA clandestine services officer who worked for the CIA. He has made multiple revelations with regards to false flag terrorism, as well as admitting to being a part of it.
Check out his interview with Collective Evolution below:
Manning is a former Army private who gave 750,000 classified documents, pertaining to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as well as detainees at Guantanamo Bay military prison, to Wikileaks. Although she was sentenced to 35 years in prison, she served a shortened sentence after public outcry.
Dr. Udo Ulfokotte
Dr. Udo Ulfkotte is a top German journalist and editor that we wrote about in 2016 after he appeared on RT News explaining how he had been forced to lie and manipulate truth by the US and German governments.
You can watch his appearance on RT News, below. I would highly recommend you take the time.
Sadly, in early 2017, he died of a heart attack. Or maybe it just looked like a heart attack…
Jeffrey S. Wigand, an American biochemist and former Vice President of Research and Development at Brown & Williamson in Louisville, Kentucky, played a major role in exposing corporate fraud related to the tobacco industry. “In 1995, he became the tobaccos industry’s highest ranking former executive to address public health and smoking issues. He did so in an interview with 60 Minutes, and as a result, a lawsuit was filed against him.”5
Dr. William Thompson
Thompson is a longtime senior CDC scientist who has published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies available, two of which- published in 2004 and 2007 for the CDC- were the most commonly cited studies used by the scientific community to debunk the controversy surrounding the MMR vaccine/autism link.
Dr. John Brandenburg
Dr. John Brandenburg was the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon (part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization and NASA) that discovered water at the moon’s poles in 1994. Currently, Brandenburg is a plasma physicist working as a consultant at Morningstar Applied Physics LLC, as well as a part-time instructor of Astronomy, Physics and Mathematics at Madison College, and other learning institutions in Madison, Wisconsin.
He has a lot to say about the possibility of an extra-terrestrial race that once lived on a Mars that was once very like earth. Check out the video below:
Dr. Norman Bergrun
“A mechanical engineer, Dr. Bergrun has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, now known as Lockheed Martin. He then went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research.” In other words, he is qualified to speak on issues regarding NASA.
In the interview below, Bergrun accuses the agency of “garbling” photos and fudging data, as well as emphasizes that people need to know that large unidentified objects that are intelligently controlled, are real.
We can all hope for and continue to work toward living in a world of truth and transparency until it becomes reality. However, even if that never happens, you and I don’t have to make lying a part of our lives. We can choose to live in the light regardless of everyone else.
