Whistleblower

Remember the name Russell Tice. He's one of the whistleblowers who reported the NSA spying program to the NY Times last month. According to Tice, if used to its fullest, the program could monitor the communications of millions of American citizens. Tice was quoted as saying that for most Americans who tried to send overseas communications, "more than likely they were sucked into that vacuum." So much for selectivity.

Interestingly, Tice was dismissed from the NSA last year for "psychological concerns." This could mean all sorts of things, and that's just the ambiguity the conservative media machine thrives upon. Any bets on how long before this guy is called a "nut" on Fox?
