“If you blow the whistle, you should be thanked. You should be protected for doing the right thing. You shouldn’t be ignored and you certainly shouldn’t be punished.” – Barack Obama, 2014/08/07
Note that Obama is not referring to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden here, but whistleblowers in the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal.
The “most transparent administration ever” (Obama) remains a myth.
“If You Care About Privacy, You’ll Be Outraged By What President Obama Just Said.” Matt Connolly, Mic.com (2014/08/09).
