NSA Whistle-blower Thomas Drake, Attorney Jesselyn Radack, journalist Kevin Gosztola Discuss National Security State, Hours Before Edward Snowden Went Public
Watch video from the presentations and discussion:
The US government seized on 9/11 to use its power in ways that obliterate constitutional protections in the name of security and protecting US lives. Whistle-blowers Bradley Manning, Thomas Drake and Jesselyn Radack were prosecuted and persecuted as part of a record six prosecutions by Obama. Drake and Radack, former insiders within the US government, spoke on the perversions of power, where the public has no more expectation of privacy and the government has secrecy. The panel featured a special report on the court martial of Bradley Manning by Kevin Gosztola.
