  •  I admire your courage, and Drake's (12+ / 0-)

    I wonder how many of us would have the guts:

    I painstakingly resurrected the e-mails, gave them to my boss, and resigned.  As Lindh's prosecution barrelled rapidly towards trial, and it appeared from what the Justice Department was saying that my e-mails still had not been turned over to the court, I gave them to the media.

    If it serves the interests of the powerful it is a leak, and is ignored.  If it serves the interests of the people, it is whistleblowing, and it is punished.  

    Politicians, at least liberals, praise whistleblowing in concept, but almost everyone who blows the whistle gets punished.  Mr. Drake joins a long list.

    I don't belong to an organized political party. I'm a Democrat.
