BOSTON (CBS) – Former FBI agent Coleen Rowley knows what it’s like to be targeted for having an unpopular point of view. After the 9/11 attack in 2001, Rowley became increasingly frustrated by the FBI’s resistance to the idea that valuable information had been missed leading up to the attack. She ended up testifying for the Senate and the 9/11 Commission, and eventually left the agency. Seeing the way President Obama’s administration has handled the AP scandal brings back frustrating memories for Rowley, and she joins NightSide to talk about it. Tune in to hear why she says the “war on whistleblowers” has now become a “war on journalists,”
