President Obama is the President who has cracked down on whistleblowers and transparency more than any other President, including George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Why is Edward Snowden inexile for reporting a crime recognized by Federal courts? Why is Bradley/Chelsea Manning in jail for revealing illegal military mistakes? Why is Thomas Drake’s life in shambles despite following the legal whistleblower protocols? On the other hand, former four-star general David Petraeus had his full pension sustained after paying a paltry fine after he revealed classified information to his mistress, Paula Broadwell, to be used in his for-profit book. Also learn about abuses regarding the Freedom of Information Act and over-classification of government documents. This is a joint discussion by the Coffee Party USA and the Project on Government Oversight.
Guests: Mandy Smithberger, Liz Hempewicz
