    If you want to have a debate, let's have a debate.  You want to name call and pontificate, that's another matter.

    BTW, I already know the distinction you will make and it is faulty.  But go ahead.

    He who would trade liberty for security deserves great customer service.

      legally blow the whistle.

      There are dozens of avenues for anybody working for the government, even in the capacity of a contractor, to blow the whistle on illegal behaviors.

      Stepping outside those bounds makes one a criminal.

      You don't get to disclose classified information because you disagree with a legal policy that was vetted by all three branches of the government simply because you don't like the policy. That is criminal behavior and is punishable by life imprisonment. IF a charge of aiding the enemy can be attached, it becomes a capital offense.

      The Green Tea Party is as dangerous as the original Tea Party.
