BFP Podcast Logo

This is Part 2 of our interview series on the Makings of a Police State. You can listen to Part 1 HERE

Coleen Rowley joins us to share her views and thoughts on the state of the misleadingly named ‘criminal justice system’ in the United States today, and the extent to which the apparatus has been transformed into a police state. She discusses the recently signed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the implications of this law for American citizens, and the troubling fact that many Americans are not aware of the serious threats to their liberties and rights posed by this police state enabling new law. Ms. Rowley talks about the Obama Administration’s increasing control of all information outlets together with the constant use of fear-hate-greed-false pride and blind loyalty propaganda to manufacture consent for the war machine as well as a panoply of other government-corporatocracy crimes, the escalating retaliation against government whistleblowers and government secrecy, FBI abuses and Director Mueller’s quietly extended term, and more!

rowleyColeen Rowley, a FBI special agent for almost 24 years, was legal counsel to the FBI Field Office in Minneapolis from 1990 to 2003. She came to national attention in June 2002, when she testified before Congress about serious lapses before 9/11 that helped account for the failure to prevent the attacks. She now writes and speaks on ethical decision-making and on balancing civil liberties with the need for effective investigation.

  1. Bill Bergman says:

    This is great! “The Hills Are Alive…” Well, maybe not that great, but Peter, Coleen, and Sibel — you are on that path, and thanks.

  2. I am an admirer of Coleen Rowley, but I was stunned to hear her comment about Timothy McVeigh. With the exception of Sibel and Frank Whitehurst, it seems no one in or retired from the FBI will admit what is going on there. If Ms. Rowley believes the FBI story on the OK City bombing, she needs to do some homework. McVeigh was a cover, a patsy. Americans are the most gullible people on the planet.

  3. I should have included in my first comment a “thank you” to Ms. Rowley for all the work she has done to protect our rights and expose govt abuse. She makes some important points in this podcast. Sibel – great point about people not understanding what the implementation of a police state looks like; not recognizing when one has been built around them because they have not been a victim of it or they’re waiting for some particular action or circumstance to announce its arrival.
