Three former US government employees, from the Justice department, and the National Security Agency (NSA), witnessed unethical and illegal actions while employed. They spoke this week at the well known European conference for computer programmers and hackers, the annual Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg, Germany, (#29c3).
Their attempts to stop the illegal actions resulted in their being targeted with attacks, violent threats, and attempts to discredit and silence them by the very government they once served honestly and with dedication. Their crimes? They have committed none. Their perceived crimes by their government? They did not turn a blind eye to the corruption and wrong doing that would result in harm to their fellow US citizens.
