US General James Cartwright was number two man in the US military, in his capacity as Vice-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and so close an advisor to the President as to be regarded by Washington insiders as ‘Obama’s General’.  He is quite possibly the most high-ranking, high-profile whistleblower in the history of the United States.

Now he’s facing prosecution for blowing the whistle on ‘Operation Olympic Games’ which planted the Stuxnet and Flame viruses in Iranian nuclear facilities in order to derail Iran’s civilian nuclear program.  On closer examination, it appears that Cartwright’s revelations didn’t so much harm US interests per say, but they hindered Israeli ambitions towards a war with Iran.

Rather than a Whistleblower, Thierry Meyssan regards Cartwright as a Resistance Hero and compares him to Admiral Canaris (director of Hitler’s military intelligence, who secretly also organized resistance to Hitler’s regime) or Count Stauffenberg (who attempted to assassinate Hitler).  Which is saying that he is resisting the oppression of a military-police dictatorship.
