Here is what your billions of dollars of tax money have bought you:
I wrote to the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program three weeks ago with three credible threats to the United States. Two of the three threats were economic, and one was terrorism related. I gave enough preliminary information that there should have been no question about the veracity of my claims. In my email, written at great risk, I said that all I needed was a secure phone number to call in my tips and that I needed no reward. I stressed that the information was time dated and that they should respond quickly.
The mailbox is still empty.
Today I braved calling the consulate in Guangzhou, China. I called the Homeland Security Office. A Chinese woman answered and told me she knew of no justice information program and could I call back next week when an officer was present that could help me. Terrorism has no office hours, but our consulate does.
I said “no” and hung up.
Feeling safer now?
