The government is not prone on following they law, nor are they a big fan of whistleblowers. This is true of both Bush and Obama.
Whistleblower Andrew Drake appears on RussiaToday and breaks down how we’ve become a surveyllance society. In sum, he says we are all now presumed guilty and hypocrites because America/UN would bomb other countries for doing the same thing.
As the former senior executive of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), Drake is very much ‘in the know’ when he says the NSA had a secret deal with the White House.
