    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Ray McGovern, an activist and a former CIA analyst; by Coleen Rowley, a former FBI special agent and whistleblower; and by Bill Binney, a former NSA technical director and whistleblower.

    Monday, June 19 marks five years since Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sought asylum in Ecuador. In the half a decade since then, Assange has been prevented by British authorities from leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in London despite the UN finding last year that he has been the subject of arbitrary detention. His case and the campaign against Wikileaks have caused a global debate over whistleblowing that rages to this day.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com.
