    Drake understood that the NSA, under Hayden's management, was subverting the Constitution.  He went through 'official channels' as a whistleblower; the valuable evidence he gave to government investigators was expunged from the record.  After years of living with this conflict, Drake spoke to a reporter.  Although he disclosed no classified information, he was still persecuted and his livelihood has been destroyed.  He now works in a retail Apple store and continues to speak out about the lawless NSA surveillance state.
