Yeah, but I suspect his career at NSA is over.
What’ll ya bet we’ll be hearing about the machinations — and ramifications — of this case for years.
Drake exposed widespread corruption, bid rigging and outright theft of tens of billions of US taxpayers’ dollars and assets by US and allies intel community senior members,
his prosecution was retribution, his plea for whistleblower protection is legitimate, and his enemies are abusing the US Judicial System to maintain their absolute control over DoD and NSA contract bid rigging,
this is the biggest whistleblower case in US history and it received NO media attention, and barely any mention even on the internet and FR.
Some day a book will be written, and it’ll be the most amazing spy thriller ever put to paper.
You might want to do some research into what triggered this episode. The NSA management crowd tossed away $1.5 billion of our tax revenue...on a failed program. There was already a similar program developed (in-house)...ready to go and the folks in charge preferred to hire outsiders...contractors, and poured our money into failure. The agency IG would not listen to NSA staff members, and it ended up in newspapers.
Whistleblower bump for later......
This should have been a major major story, I never quite got why the media didn’t go all out on this (especially since it happened during the Bush administration, and could have been used to attack Bush).....
Doesn’t the NSA have contingency plans to - - extra-legally - - get rid of traitorous scum like Drake?
If they don’t they should.
Good deal! Now, in the old days of the former Republic, we would have expected to hear of his tragic death in a canoe accident. We can only hope...
