      I just wanted to know if she went to jail.  It looks like she didn't, but lost her job.  She was on probation and the government can let you go for any reason when you are on probation.  The article doesn't say if it was before or after whistleblowing that it was decided to let her go.  Snowden will go to jail, Ms. Gray just lost her job.  Big difference.  Snowden would at the most just have lost his job that it looks like he hated anyway.  Firing a whistleblower is bad, but imagine if she would still stay and worked for the government.  Those around her would always distrust her and believe that she was looking over their shoulder.  Not saying it is right, but Gray doing the right thing and going thru the right channels saved her from going to jail or being a fugitive like Snowden.  She will get a good job eventually because she did the right thing.

      President Obama should do the right thing and praise all whistleblowers that go thru the right channels instead of punishing them.
