  •  Anybody heard about a whistleblower and NSA .. (none)
    This morning while I was driving to work, I heard on the CBS radio news that a whistleblower has come forward and talk openly about the NSA and the domestic spying.

    In fact, the news reader also mentioned the name of the person who has come forward. Did anybody hear this? And who is this person? Did anybody mention this in dKos or diary it?

    I searched at CBSnews.com, but could not find anything.

      Are we still routinely torturing helpless prisoners, and if so, does it feel right that we as American citizens are not outraged by the practice? -Al Gore

      it's from a story in The Washington Times

      A former National Security Agency official wants to tell Congress about electronic intelligence programs that he asserts were carried out illegally by the NSA and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
          Russ Tice, a whistleblower who was dismissed from the NSA last year, stated in letters to the House and Senate intelligence committees that he is prepared to testify about highly classified Special Access Programs, or SAPs, that were improperly carried out by both the NSA and the DIA.
          "I intend to report to Congress probable unlawful and unconstitutional acts conducted while I was an intelligence officer with the National Security Agency and with the Defense Intelligence Agency," Mr. Tice stated in the Dec. 16 letters, copies of which were obtained by The Washington Times.
