What protections should whistleblowers receive?

Recommended Posts

For this discussion, I'm particularly interested in whistleblowers that may have released classified information, i.e. Manning, Snowden, etc.

I believe that whistleblowers should be given quite wide protections since what they are doing is alerting authorities to illegal activities. It is quite brave to do such a thing even at the risk of your job, career and reputation. I, for example, agree with Snowden leaking the information that he did......especially since what he was uncovering and revealing was unconstitutional and illegal. I always say that sunlight is the best disinfectant. Those who are blameless have nothing to hide...and thus I see no reason for employees (private sector or government) who uncover illegal activities.
