War on Whistleblowers

Greenwald, Robert; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
This explosive film uncovers the perils to the careers and livelihoods of whistleblowers, both governmental and corporate, and the threats facing journalists who publicly try to right a wrong. The whistleblowers featured in the film continue the tradition of brave men and women who have come forward to tell the truth without looking for any personal gain - Daniel Ellsberg (The Pentagon Papers); Jeffrey Wigand (tobacco industry); Karen Silkwood (power plant health and safety procedures) and Mark Felt (Watergate). Four renowned cases of whistle-blowing serve as the backdrop to a much larger story of what happens to people who resort to the media to expose fraud and abuse: -Franz Gayl (Deputy Branch Head for the Space and Information Operations Integration Branch) - a lifelong Marine Gayl blew the whistle to stop unnecessary death and dismemberment of soldiers by replacing Humvees with MRAP's (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles) in Iraq. -Thomas Drake (Former Senior Executive of the National Security Agency)-exposed the Stellar Wind program, a super secret warrantless surveillance program that violated American's privacy rights. -Michael DeKort (Former Lockheed Martin Project Manager) -posted a whistleblowing video on YouTube after he found security and safety issues with the U.S. Coast Guard's 123 Coast Guard Cutter, manufactured for the Deepwater program. -Thomas Tamm (Former attorney of the U.S. Department of Justice) was classified as a whistleblower when he uncovered warrantless wiretapping by the National Security Agency (NSA) under the Bush administration. Includes interviews with whistleblowers Michael DeKort, Thomas Drake, Franz Gayl and Thomas Tamm, plus award-winning journalists David Carr, Lucy Dalglish, Glenn Greenwald, Seymour Hersh, Michael Isikoff, Bill Keller, Eric Lipton, Jane Mayer, Dana Preist, Tom Vanden Brook and Sharon Weinberger.
