Slideshow: Six US Whistleblowers Charged Under the Espionage Act

Dear Friends

Meet the six whistleblowers Obama has prosecuted under the Espionage Act—more than all other presidents combined.
The Obama administration has been carrying out an unprecedented crackdown on whistleblowers, particularly on those who have divulged information that relates to national security. The Espionage Act, enacted during the first World War to punish Americans who aided the enemy, had only been used three times in its history to try government officials accused of leaking classified information — until the Obama administration. Since 2009, the administration has used the act to prosecute six government officials. Meet the whistleblowers.
