    would be for Congress to give them retroactive immunity for any laws they might have broken in whistleblowing.

      is change the books so that it is not a crime to disclose government wrongdoing.

      Even better would be legislation that would compel people to blow the whistle whenever they encounter governmental wrongdoing.  That gives whistle blowers even more cover because then they can say, "I didn't have any choice but to reveal these secret activities.  The law requires me to blow the whistle."

      The true measure of a man's character lies not in how he treats his friends, but in how he treats his enemies.
