This is a 2013 documentary about whisle-blowing.
What happens when you know your government is doing something illegal and tell the public about it?
Well... that is the subject this documentary is all about.
The film introduces you to the surprisingly profound dilemma that would-be whistleblowers face, and the hard path that follows once the decision is made.
The Obama administration was to make the decison-making process transparent and to work for the American people.
Unfortunately, however, this documentary shows otherwise.
View it and judge for yourself.

The War on Whistleblowers, began under Bush and greatly increased under Obama, goes after the bravest and most patriotic Americans [Cate Jenkins of the EPA, Thomas Drake when he was at the NSA, Jeffrey Sterling at the CIA, John Kiriakou formerly with the CIA, et cetera, et cetera] to make an example of anyone who dares cross the super-criminals within the US government. [Why do you think federal office buildings are so well guarded? Because that's where the criminals are!] President Obama has enacted the Espionage Act against more Americans than all previous presidents combined! George W. Bush should have been impeached; so should Barack Obama! [And murder suffices when the corrupt courts aren't used: LaVena Johnson, found raped, beaten and killed in a KBR tent, due to leave early from Iraq in 2005 because she was uncomfortable with some of their highly questionable procedures - - Philip Merrill, head of the Ex-Im Bank during the Iraq War, scheduled to meet with a journalist on Monday, while on the weekend on his yacht half his head is blown off by a shotgun, his body found 12 miles away weighted down by a ship's anchor.]

The feature moves smoothly af first. But then the screen freezes at the 58:28 mark. Cleaning the disc (a total of 3 times) didn't help. Being unable to finish a DVD is very frustrating.
