    Ex-NSA worker charged in classified leak case


    On the surface, it appears that Drake leaked classified information. However, it appears that Drake was a whistleblower, who was leaking Federal programs which were created to spy on Americans. Yes, Bush created these programs, and Obama is trying his damndest to keep them going at any cost.

    Again, I ask "What change"? Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. IMHO, I believe that the Obama administration should be investigated for spying on American citizens without a court order. And, if it shows that Obama was in the loop on this, then he should be impeached.

    You know, I bristle and get pissed when I see extremists comparing Obama to Hitler, but in some ways, they might actually be right. There is absolutely no excuse for Obama's using the Constitution to wipe his ass on.

    Except for the title from AFP/Raw Story, I don't see where you're getting the whistleblower angle from. The article talks about him divulging information related to foreign signals intelligence.
