    Thomas Drake; 'Yes' Would do it Again
    Thomas Drake, former NSA senior official who the government tried to convict of ten felony charges, some by using the Espionage Act, joins the show with his attorney Jesselyn Radack, National Security and Human Rights Director for the Government Accountability Project. Just a few months ago all of the charges were suddenly dropped, and Drake pled guilty to one misdemeanor charge of unauthorized computer access. This was a case carried over from the Bush administration, and pursued actively by the Obama administration.
