Are whistleblowers criminals or heros?


What do you think about this subject? Should we fear major classified leakage or dishonesty from our governments? Which is worse and why?

    That is the way the government wants us to act, like we just can't make it without them and that is how this administration bought most of their votes. They may be surprised to find out many of us still have a backbone!

    We were saying the same thing in the 1960s during the campus riots, Watts, Democratic convention and assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King. It was also during Vietnam, the development of real Civil Rights and a lot more.

    I find it odd they are not spying on potential terrorist? Why waste all that time and energy on innocent law abiding citizens, then give Miranda rights to a terrorist who has been caught? How many are they really fooling if "they" told truth?

    If so normal why wouldn't we have been told instead of pretending and even saying nothing like this would happen like it did under Bush, when in fact it is way over the top of anything any administration has done? Lies after claiming transparency?

    Yes it seems all the governments are playing a power game. Strange that ours is now at these critical time being so deathly quiet.

    You make some excellent points and I wish some of our government members give this some consideration before they call for a lynching party! There will no doubt be much more revealed in the next few days. This house of cards is going to tumble.

    Sorry I haven't been back in awhile. I am glad to see you think that way even being in the position you were. Clearly this man has opened a can of worms that we had a right to know about. I think he is very brave and did it for his country.

    Great comment that I don't see who with a clear conscience could argue with. I had no idea America was for sale but yes, this administration has shown me what some will put up with for a free phone. Whistle blowers may have saved us. We will see.

    Good to hear those words and my thoughts exactly. I think the man really is doing something that could cost him his life and he knows it. Look how long scandal has been spilling out of the White House and no one punished or even answering anything!

    The institutionalization of America is progressively (so to speak) criminalizing those who step out of line. Individualism is under assault. I would hope the reaction to these revelations will encourage more resistance, but I hear a lot of bleating.
