Just one major telecommunications company refused to participate in a legally dubious NSA surveillance program in 2001. A few years later, its CEO was indicted by federal prosecutors. He was convicted, served four and a half years of his sentence and was released this month.
Prosecutors claim Qwest CEO Joseph Nacchio was guilty of insider trading, and that his prosecution had nothing to do with his refusal to allow spying on his customers without the permission of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. But to this day, Nacchio insists that his prosecution was retaliation for refusing to break the law on the NSA's behalf.
After his release from custody Sept. 20, Nacchio told the Wall Street Journal that he feels "vindicated" by the content of the leaks that show that the agency was collecting American's phone records.


Apparently there are some good guys out there in industry , here is one that did not bend knees to sacred government yes he paid a price, the judge in this case need to be prosecuted and the NSA investigated again this is not a lib or a Con issue. GET BIG MONEY OUT OF POLITICS!!!.

*Round of applause*

Now we know who REALLY deserves that Nobel Peace prize. Should we take Obama's and give it to this guy? Or just give him the one Putin is about win?

Maybe good people need to create an American integrity award or better yet a world's integrity award the Nobel Peace Prize is becoming a joke handing out peace prize for people who are killing, had killed and will kill.

I think I may have a new hero.

Wonder if the early release was because someone got a clue from the NSA leaks.
