Video is now available online of the GAP sponsored presentation by thought leaders, whistleblowers and journalists. The event brought members of the press and public to the National Press Club in Washington, DC to participate in a very necessary discussion on the current state of US national security, the NSA surveillance program, and the future of whistleblowing and journalism in the United States of America.
The first panel – moderated by nationally syndicated columnist David Sirota – focused on the stories of three NSA whistleblowers – Thomas Drake, Bill Binney and J. Kirk Wiebe – and one telecom whistleblower Babak Pasdar. They were joined by experts from the Cato Institute and the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) and GAP National Security & Human Rights Director Jesselyn Radack.

James Risen of the New York Times moderated the second panel, which focused on the future of the free press and an increainsly anti-whistleblower America.
