NSA wasting a billion dollars on unnecessary program--
NSA Whistleblower Speaks Out on Verizon, PRISM, and the Utah Data Center | Libertas Institute | Advancing the cause of liberty in Utah: "LI: Why do you suppose that they took those retaliatory actions against you?
WB: I was among another five people who were really complaining about NSA. Under the regulations for employment with the government, you’re required to report fraud, waste, and abuse. And that’s to be done to the Inspector General at the Department of Defense. So that’s what we did.
Specifically, with a program called “trailblazer“, they were wasting a billion dollars on that program, when all the issues with it have already been solved, and we had been part of that solution.
LI: But why retaliate? Because they were so invested in the outcome of the project?
WB: Yes, and all the companies that were involved in it. They all had a vested interest in keeping it going."
