Thomas Drake | Enemy of the State

How the US Government Tried to Turn a Truth-Teller into a Traitor

There’s a lot of talk about “cancel culture” these days but I believe the worst form of “cancel culture” is when you don’t just lose your job, but get framed, labeled an enemy of the state, and threatened with life in prison for simply speaking truth to power. That’s what happened to Tom when he blew the whistle on the fraud, waste, and abuse of the government’s illegal mass warrantless surveillance program.

I had the honor of speaking with Drake about his incredible story.

I recommend this story for anyone concerned about America’s move towards Fascism. We all know about Edward Snowden. But according to Edward Snowden himself, “If there hadn’t been a Thomas Drake, there couldn’t have been an Edward Snowden.”
