Whistleblower Sentenced to Prison

The Washington Post is generally considered right of center in political circles.  I don’t disagree.  I find that bias to lend a bit less weight to their criticism of the Obama administration in general.  That said, this article correctly characterizes the administration as having a track record of being especially hostile to insiders who become whistleblowers.  Among other things, I was hoping for greater transparency and protection for whistleblowers under this administration.  I, as many others, have been severely disappointed with the Obama administration in these respects.
