Sharp Criticism Follows Rejection of NSA Whistleblower's Retaliation Claim

WASHINGTON - Thomas Drake, a National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower, who reported billions of dollars in waste and rampant civil liberties abuses by the NSA on a surveillance program called Trailblazer, has had his claim of NSA retaliation for whistleblowing rejected by the Pentagon Inspector General’s Office. The IG’s Office reviewed only 5 months of ten years of retaliation in Drake’s complaint, according to a Pentagon summary of the probe obtained by McClatchy.
