Whistleblower comes to Gainesville

By on April 1st, 2011

If you have an image in your head of an F-B-I agent, you might not think of a whistleblower or someone who believes the government is collecting too much information about average citizens. But that’s what people will find tonight in Gainesville, at an event sponsored by the Civic Media Center for its spring fundraiser.

Former FBI agent Coleen Rowley, who was a whitleblower following 9-11, as she brought to light shortcomings on the part of the F-B-I and the intelligence community, speaks Friday night at the Matheson Museum in Gainesville. Her topic——“When top-secret America misfires”. She spoke with WUFT-FM’s Tom Krynski.
