Special Forces officer tells Senate panel he was vilified as whistleblower – FierceGovernment

Those other three hostage have not been recovered and after Amerine told Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) the hostage recovery system was broken, he was labeled a whistleblower and retaliation followed, he said.

Amerine says being called a whistleblower is “a term that has become radioactive and derogatory.”

“A terrible irony is that my security clearance was suspended on January 15th, the day after Warren Weinstein was killed, as we now know,” Amerine said in the hearing.

Weinstein was accidentally in an American drone strike. Some on the panel agreed with Amerine that the system is broken.

“They sacrifice their careers, their reputations and often their financial security,” Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said. “Congress, and this committee in particular, must support federal whistleblowers and ensure that they are adequately protected from retaliation.”
