Katherine Gunns amazing Whistleblower Story ! (From Iraq War Leak to Movie: 2003-2019)
The Observer published the dirty tricks memo as a front-page splash just over two weeks before the invasion. Gun owned up to the leak a few days later to save her GCHQ colleagues from a witch-hunt. She was arrested and charged with breach of the Official Secrets Act. It was in a police cell that she uttered those two sentences that now seem to define the person she was and is. Gun was asked by Special Branch officers why she had chosen to act as she had. “You work for the British government,” her interrogator said, with a sneer.
“No,” Gun replied, steadily. “I work for the British people. I do not gather intelligence so the government can lie to the British people.”
