I watched this earlier today, I thought it was about as honest as it gets. To me, through the whole speech I kept thinking....



And I'm sure it's a lot worse than this guy was privy to knowing about.

Can someone who has seen the video write a basic summary about it please?

I would love to watch it, but it's 30 minutes long and I'm nearly at my download limit. Got to be careful before the 10th of this month, or I will be at dialup speed until then. Cheers.

Thanks for posting that, Star and Flag.
I agree this needs to be shared as widely as possible, he puts into concise words the thoughts and the rants I have been feeling and trying to communicate to others for many years now. For the past year or so it has hit me, that I no longer live in the country I grew up and believed in. We have let those in power destroy the system of checks and balance that were set into place to act as a control to prevent power hungry psychopaths from destoying our country. When we let bush get by with stomping on our constitutional rights, we started down a slippery slope that obama has warped into hyper-drive.

It is a speech by Thomas Drake upon receiving an award, He is an NSA Whistleblower who tried to go through proper channels to protest excessive government waste and abuse of power in handling intelligence gathering after 911. After following every possible available channel he leaked unclassified information to a newspaper reporter and faced prosecution for it. He was charged with espionage and faced 35 years. He titled his speech "What Country do You Want to Live in" and talked about the abuse of power and loss of constitutionial rights and the invaision of privacy for american citizens. The graft that goes on spending millions and billions of dollars in order to self-serve and to keep. government contracters happy. Protested abuse of power, rise of tyranny, and how torture is NEVER a viable option. Illuminati I know what you are talking about on reaching you download limit. but IMO this is definately worth the 30 min.

from 4.45 " I also discovered that NSA had withheld critical and crucial intelligence, prior to 9/11, and after 9/11 as well as data and information which was available, but remained undiscovered and if shared, if shared, could have made a decisive difference alone in preventing the 9/11 attacks from ever happening"

I found this interesting, so I went, viewed fully.

The count still shows "301", even I watched it for the first time. I checked a few more on that page, to the right....found more that are stuck at "301". One was stuck at "469".

Could it just by a YouTube glitch?? Can YouTube be hacked? (By the NSA, for example)?

Conspiracies, begin!!
