Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton each prosecuted financial crime more aggressively than Barack Obama.
But that doesn’t mean that Obama is failing to prosecute. He is just aiming at a different type of target.
The New York Times reported last year:
In President Obama's 26 months in office, civilian and military prosecutors have charged five people in cases involving leaking information, more than all previous presidents combined.Andrew Kreig notes:
[Government Accountability Project's] Homeland Security and Human Rights Director Jesselyn Radack, a well-credential ethics advisor in 2001 at the Bush Department of Justice [said] “Obama … has brought more prosecutions against whistleblowers under the Espionage Act than any previous president and all presidents combined.”The former head of the National Security Agency’s global digital data gathering program – William Binney – confirmed to Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman:
AMY GOODMAN: [T]he number of people who have been indicted are more than all presidents combined in the past.
WILLIAM BINNEY: Right. And I think it's to silence what's going on.And see this interview with former CIA intelligence asset Susan Lindauer.
