April 18 Update
Apparently, since I wrote my statement about the Camelot split, a lot of people don't seem to understand what is going on here… This is not some superficial parting of the ways or some boy/girl argument that we need to just 'get over'.
The issues at root here go to the very core of our Camelot mission. And this mission is worldwide in scope. It is crucial that as we go forward, everyone understand what is at stake here.
If we, as Camelot are not a safe place for whistleblowers and researchers and experiencers, to tell their story then we cannot operate under this mission. Period.
Now, judging from a few emails and some of the nonsense going on in the forums, many of you don't seem to get that if we as the Founders decide later that a whistleblower or source is telling us lies, we do have recourse. We can step forward. We can state our new opinions on the matter in public. We can agree to disagree. We can even challenge them and their story. In public. For example, we could say we disagree with what they have told us and suggest that they come forward and further substantiate their position. This too, would be permissible.
But what we cannot do under any circumstances is reveal our sources names and ranks and other private information about them or info provided to us, without their express permission. Without that we have no integrity. We cannot and should not reveal their true names (regardless of what other people say or do) and I also submit, we should not after the fact, berate, bad-mouth or otherwise insult them in public. Once we accept their storyin confidence and this is key, then we also agree to maintain that confidence against all odds and attacks.
That's it. Without that, there is no Camelot.
