~rb25de: "Thomas Andrews Drake has my utmost respect." VIDEO

Thomas Andrews Drake

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thomas Andrews Drake (born 1957) is a former senior executive of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), decorated United States Air Force and United States Navy veteran, computer software expert, linguist, management and leadership specialist, and whistleblower. In 2010 the government alleged that he 'mishandled' documents, one of the few such Espionage Act cases in U.S. history. His defenders claim that he was instead being persecuted for challenging the Trailblazer Project. He is the 2011 recipient of the Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling and co-recipient of the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence (SAAII) award.

On June 9, 2011, all 10 original charges against him were dropped. He rejected several deals because he refused to "plea bargain with the truth". He eventually pleaded to one misdemeanor count for exceeding authorized use of a computer; Jesselyn Radack of the Government Accountability Project, who helped represent him, called it an act of "Civil Disobedience"

I just hope he didn't 'really' plea bargain

to become a deep COINTELPRO agent to steer everybody who's fighting for Liberty in the open, so the NKVD aka DHS can swoop in and round us up. It's hard to fully trust any of the guys, like AJ, seems good on the surface, but if you listen closely, he always evades the real culprits of the overall conspiracy. Here, is an interesting exposure of AJ. I have to agree with much (not all) of what is exposed, that I have questioned for a long time. It's all about staying informed with the alternative news and look for patterns to create facts. http://beforeitsnews.com/story/2269/715/The_Truth_About_Alex...

Just don't speak ill of the gubermint; you won't have a problem.

Seriously, Mr. Drake isn't a hero. He is merely doing what comes natural for any person of integrity.
On a side note, NSA should just be de-funded. You don't have to keep track of everyone in order to find a few bad guys.

Wow! Excellent Video of him talking to RT

There is no price for Freedom. No kidding! I've gone from earning 100k a year working as a contractor for the MIC to earning less than 20k as a delivery driver but have never felt more free in all my life!

I had a home with a pool, waverunners, 6 TV's, and all the rest to now owning 1 car and living in an efficency apt with a crt tv that is never turned on. (it came with the unit) I have 1 bill to pay each month. That's it...other than food and petro. That's freedom baby.

And like he says...I'm fighting for my child and future generations. I'm 48 and woke up WAY TOO LATE to be much more help than a teacher. I'm doing all I can but the youth and the adults are all seriously brainwashed. It's much worse than I thought as far as trying to reason with people who I thought were intelligent. But, I never give up. It's become a challenge for me. And I enjoy it. :)

Your words like RP's.
