LIBE whistleblower hearing at the European Parliament

This week I was invited to give a statement to the LIBE Committee at the European Parliament about whistleblowing and the NSA mass surveillance scandal.

I was in good company: ex-NSA Tom Drake, ex-Department of Justice Jesselyn Radack, and ex-NSA Kirk Wiebe. As well as describing the problems we had faced as intelligence whistleblowers, we also suggested some possible solutions.

We were well received, even to the extent of an ovation from the normally reticent MEPs.  We also all did various interviews for TV during the day, but this is the only one I have tracked down so far.

Here is the video:
