This story is true. In 2009 three Christians working within one of Australia’s intelligence organizations, witnessed things they shouldn’t have seen. What could they do about it? They were sworn to secrecy and could’ve been prosecuted for revealing what they knew. Besides, they had no evidence. All the proof was digital; locked away in secret Defense computer files. In 2011, without evidence to back their claims, they went to the media, and watched in awe as God protected them from prosecution and helped them expose the greatest intelligence scandal in Australia’s history. Theirs is a remarkable story… Three Defense whistleblowers say they have been directly ordered by superiors to falsify security checks on civilian and military personnel. (John Stewart, ABC Lateline. May 2011) “We owe them a debt of gratitude! The Parliament owes these three brave people a great debt of gratitude for coming forward in the circumstances.” (Parliament House, Canberra.
