    to take advantage (to the limited sense there are advantages) of the protections of the Whistleblower Act one must follow the act. The act requires reporting to an IG or member of Congress.

    So while its lawyerly to use the act's definition of whistleblower it is disingenuous to imply that he is also afforded the protections of the act.

    He had options, options that may not be great, where he would have been able to tell his story under protection. But he didn't chose that path.
