NSA Whistleblower Thomas Drake speaks at National Press Club

This speech by Thomas Drake, which occurred two months before Edward Snowden’s first disclosure, should send chills down your spine. What’s almost as revealing is that it has not been widely disseminated. I wonder why?  If you don’t have time to listen to the entire speech, you can jump to the 49 min mark to get the heart of the message.

At a minimum, I hope Mr. Drake’s words will cause those that still cling to the Bush Doctrine or Obama’s Hope & Change to loosen their grip just enough to permit a little truth to slip in.

Thomas Andrews Drake is a former senior executive of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), a decorated United States Air Force and United States Navy veteran, and a whistleblower.

In 2010 the government alleged that Drake ‘mishandled’ documents, one of the few such Espionage Act cases in U.S. history. Drake’s defenders claim that he was instead being persecuted for challenging the Trailblazer Project. He is the 2011 recipient of the Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling and co-recipient of the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence award.

On June 9, 2011, all 10 original charges against him were dropped. Drake rejected several deals because he refused to “plea bargain with the truth”. He eventually pled to one misdemeanor count for exceeding authorized use of a computer.

Govt: The Ultimate Assault Weapon

If you are thinking about jumping on the “ban assault weapons” bandwagon, you should at least watch this short video to know why the people in small towns, that cling to their guns and religion, have such antipathy towards politically-correct, liberal know-it-alls, that have no experience in what they preach.

Trump to Release Hidden JFK Assassination Documents

What is the govt hiding? Not releasing the docs is a travesty of justice and democracy, just as it is not showing all the surveillance footage from inside Mandalay Bay. It’s the same self-serving logic that has prevented banksters from not being prosecuted for the biggest financial fraud in history, …
