- 1 hr 6 min
This intriguing documentary reportedly deals in depth with several instances in which the United States government has sought to punish whistleblowers, people who endeavored to bring violations of the law or incompetent practices by their supervisors to the attention of the public, so that reforms might occur. The producers use interviews with reporters and scholars to cast greater light on this subject. Some of the people discussed reportedly include: Daniel Ellsburg, who released the controversial Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War era; engineer, Michael De Kort; scientist, Franz Gayl; NSA official, Thomas Drake; and Bush Justice Department attorney, Thomas Tamm.
