Who is Reality Winner? A discussion with three US national security whistleblowers:
- Thomas Drake (US)
- Lisa Ling (US)
- Jesselyn Radack (US)
It has been eight months since FBI agents arrested Reality Leigh Winner, a young female contractor and an Air Force veteran with top secret clearance. Reality is accused of leaking a classified report about Russian interference during the 2016 US presidential election.
Despite promises of running "the most transparent administration ever", the Barack Obama presidency wielded the Espionage Act against more whistleblowers than all previous presidencies combined. As a consequence of choosing to shoot the messengers rather than heed their warnings about indiscriminate surveillance, the impact of military technology and human rights abuses, those programmes have now been handed over to the Trump administration largely unreformed.
