18. Wrong.

President Obama has prosecuted leakers, not whistleblowers.

You want to know why he has prosecuted more leakers than previous administrations? Because there are more of them.

Obama has greatly enhanced and expanded whisteblower protections.

He created a National Declassification Center that will issue a report in December of this year.

Many of the leakers he has prosecuted are holdovers from Bush, Jr. days.

Equating leaking with whistleblowing is disingenuous, IMO.



Stop looking for heroes. BE one.
