Pentagon Whistleblower Franz Gayl Saved Our Troops, Help Save Him

For virtually his entire adult life, Franz Gayl has served his country. Enlisting in the United States Marine Corps from an early age, he moved over to become a civilian Science and Technology Advisor at the Pentagon after retiring from his position as officer. While he was deployed in Iraq, Mr. Gayl saw first hand the deadly consequences of the Marine Corps bureaucracy. In 2005, Gayl blew the whistle on Marine procurement politics that had blocked delivery of mine-resistance armored vehicles and non-lethal crowd control dispersers to Iraq. The absences of these tools literally caused thousands of unnecessary troop and civilian fatalities.

Thanks to Gayl’s whistleblower disclosures, the equipment was provided, and needless fatalities have been avoided. However, his actions have cost him his professional career – and possibly, his job. The Marine bureaucracy reacted with a "never again" strategy against Gayl – a clear signal meant to silence other potential whistleblowers. He has been fighting back harassment for three years, but the Marine Corps is now trying to finish Gayl off by suspending his security clearance. Until the new Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act legislation that strengthens federal whistleblower protections is passed, Gayl has no viable legal rights to defend himself.
With your help, however, Gayl can defend himself with solidarity. Solidarity is, and always has been, more effective in defending whistleblowers than formal legal rights. The Marines might have the official power, but we can demonstrate that democracy is more powerful than raw abuses of power. Sign the petition below to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and demand that the Marine Corps stop the retaliation against national hero and patriot Franz Gayl.
