I watched the film, coincidentally, on the day the Bradley Manning verdict came down. Manning's not one of the featured whistleblowers in the film, but they four who are share much the same story: they tried to do the right thing and suffered the consequences. Usually that means losing your job, being blacklisted from government and corporate jobs, huge legal bills, and worse. The film also features the journalists who help blow the whistle, and highlights the perils they also face - generally cutting off access so that they cannot continue as reporters on government or military issues. Anyone who cares about their country should watch this film and then push to support whistleblower protections. Highly Recommended.

Great documentary, made me really sick to know how stupid US. Military industries lobbyists don't really care for anything but making money. Unbelievable.

Americans are not as free as they think they are, they live in a delusion of freedom. It maybe that the Western world we live is not as free as we all believe, sadly it may be so. I really do not know but i suspect this may be the case. After the death of President Roosevelt every President since appears to have had their own agenda and that appears it is to wage war where ever they can find a conflict. This country can seem to not be able to exist without a conflict. Anyone who has paid attention and read or watched stories such as "THE PAT TILLMAN STORY" OR "THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA & the VIETNAM CLASSIFIED PAPERS". Cover up after cover up. It seems if we are to believe these many programs which by the way are available we should revise our opinions and take the care to absorb the HORROR. I also suspect the truth will one day be revealed about the real ASSASSINATION of President Kennedy, not in my time!!? This is not news it is just not achnowledged by the US GOVT. There are books and dvds on the subject, it is there if citizens are aware, pay attention and source them. The majority of the populace are not interested or pay any attention as to the running of our Western countries or who are the real people we entrust our country, our lives and the future lives of our children and grandchildren, so on and so forth. Is it collective amnesia? It is not rocket Science, is it? They have made a national treasure of President Kennedy. Why was he eliminated? Why have so many people swallowed the story that one man with a dodgey rifle took Kennedy's life!!!! Why did the Secret Service allow an ooen car with very little protection? I believe the other story about a French Hitman. Did President Kennedy want to withdraw from Vietnam?Read more ›

It wasn't a cinamatic masterpiece, but it WAS a story worth telling. I worked for DoD and it was every bit as corrupt as the recent media releases and movies portray. When I read about how the victim in sexual assault cases 'had it coming' or wasn't "credible" (think Air Force Academy rapes, Anita Hill, or the latest General Sinclair case) I always laugh wryly. The government goes WAY out of its way to discredit the victim, and, as Monty Python would say, "plummage (or in this case facts).........don't enter into it". The irony is federal employees are compelled to uphold the constitution and defend their country against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. But when those employees do so, all of a sudden you are falsely chacterized as a 'stripper' or a 'drug user' or god knows how many other unseemly things. (Think the female scientist in The Bourne Legacy). It's standard operating procedure. I've seen firsthand what Dept of Defense does to their own employees and citizens .......it makes me think their characterization of foreign leaders, axes of evil, and terrorist groups is not to be believed. "Ummm.....what weapons of mass destruction?"
