"If you take what has been happening since; in the post 9-11 security world, what you're seeing is the establishment of a surveillance society." - Thomas Andrews Drake on the degree of government surveillance on the American population post 9-11
"And you also have the fear element. Fear in itself is control. And what people will do when they're fearful is they will begin to censor themselves." - Thomas A. Drake on fear as a tool of control
"You go after the messenger because the last thing you want to do is deal with the message." - Thomas A. Drake on how the government attacks investigative journalists
The following video interview with whistleblowerThomas Andrews Drake, formerly with the National Security Agency (NSA), reveals the degree to which the NSA is conducting surveillance of the people of the United States in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Drake makes many excellent points in this interview, which I recommend viewing.
