    Sure, they can be held under close scrutiny, but in a democracy as we like to believe and project that we are, one must have an avenue to call attention to crimes against our laws and constitution. I can assure you of one thing, it is imposed upon me as a business owner, working with/for the federal government, that I inform, in writing my employees that if they observe, or are themselves asked to engage in activity that is illegal, that they are obliged to report it, and I am required to provide them with the contact people and their numbers. Whistle blower protection.

    As to the other, we just disagree.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    And this doesn't change anything you talked about. So why did you?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Why did you talk about whistleblowing?

    Sorry dude, I don't get your point. Whistle blowing seems very related to the op.

    As pointed out in the op, the system is amongst other things, to identify leakers, i.e., whistleblowers.

    It identifies leakers, not whistleblowers. Why do you think they're the same thing?
