Whistleblower turns to YouTube…

Filed as News on August 29, 2006 10:35 pm

An engineer at Lockheed Martin who believed that the Coast Guard’s new ships had significant security flaws turned to YouTube in order to get his story out after being rebuffed by his bosses, by federal investigators, and his congressman, according to an article in today’s Washington Post:

But when no one seemed to be stepping up to correct what he saw as critical security flaws in a fleet of refurbished Coast Guard patrol boats, De Kort did just about the only thing left he could think of to get action: He made a video and posted it on YouTube.com.

Clearly an original way to get attention to your cause…
