National Security Agency whistle-blower Thomas Drake on his ordeal after he exposed waste, mismanagement and possible constitutional violations at the governmental agency. Accused of retaining classified information with the intent to distribute, he was the subject of an unprecedented prosecution by the Obama Administration using the Espionage Act of 1917.  The case fell apart last year.  Drake was awarded the Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling in 2011.  Also joining us,  Jesselyn Radack, Thomas Drake’s attorney and a whistle-blower in her own right in the John Walker Lindh case.  She is the author of TRAITOR: The Whistleblower and the “American Taliban” and the Director of National Security and Human Rights with the Government Accountability Project.
