Bradley Birkenfeld did the right thing. But what is the “right” thing you may ask? Acting with a sense of being morally right and accepting the consequences, at any price. The price here is Bradley Birkenfeld’s freedom. Maybe the price he is paying is too high but it is the price an honest and courageous man must pay when dealing with an incompetent and corrupt judicial system. One thing we know for sure is that he means what he says and knows what he means. How many people do you know that possess these heroic-type attributes? He is the ONLY person who delivered the entire criminal case to the U.S. justice system and by doing so not only did he expose the tax cheats and criminal bankers but also the incompetence of the DOJ. And this is precisely the reason why he is in jail. Not because “he did not disclose his relationship with the billionaire real estate developer”, he did!

If you are an innocent bystander witnessing a robbery, what would be the first thing you do? Probably call the police. It is OUR money in those banks and the tax cheats, who are robbing our money by not paying their fair share of taxes, are pardoned! And what about that bystander who called the police? Well, he is in jail because he failed to tell the police officers that there wasn’t just one thief but two thieves. This could never happen you say? Under a just system of course not, but it HAS happened and that bystander is Bradley Birkenfeld. Well, here’s Bradley Birkenfeld—facing the fire, and there’s the DOJ—hiding in big Uncle Sam’s pocket. And what are they doing? They’re rewarding the DOJ, and destroying Bradley. Because they have the power to do so and not because they are doing the right thing. The only person who did the right thing is Bradley Birkenfeld.
I urge you to think about the ramifications of this case and to seriously consider what is at stake here. Please visit the National Whistleblowers Center homepage (http://www.whistleblowers.org/) for the real facts and to take action by signing the clemency petition campaign letter.
