Now this story rings some serious bells about the supposed Obama administration intent of being "friendly" to whistleblowers.
Here NSA executive level employee Tom Drake with a long stellar record decided to turn the tables on the government by spilling the beans to
intelligence committees on Capitol Hill, but to no avail. Once he did everything by the book and became extremely frustrated by lack of action, he
began giving unclassified info to a reporter who started breaking stories on the issues.
At no time did he feed her classified info, and yet he is being charged under the Espionage Act, and is facing up to life in prison.
This CBS 60 Minutes interview is excellent, and describes how Tom Drake tried all the proper legal channels to expose the corruption, failure, and
mismanagement of the NSA at the highest levels, and what happened? He and several others got their homes raided by the FBI.
The continuing conspiracy to keep government operating over and above the laws granted to the federal government by the Constitution know no
boundaries. Mess with the big boys and you are toast.
This story contains elements relative to 9/11, warrantless wiretapping, supercomputers, and more. Perfect ATS material!
