56. offer should be made to smaller fish
I agree. If someone like Cliff Arnebeck could provide an email and address for people who have information but are too afraid to come forward. President Obama's comments so far only serve to make those afraid even more afraid to come forward. President Obama should be encouraging those with information to come forward understanding the pressure and fears they are dealing with. Many feel they had no choice other than to break the law. There needs to be a safe place for them to come with their information and for them a deal and protection should be offered.
