When Ellsberg leaked state secrets from the McNamara Report to the press, he went into hiding in his Cambridge home. Two weeks later, he turned himself in. He did what Senator Dianne Feinstein ordered Snowden to do, "come back and face the music."

President Obama ran his initial campaign on a pledge for transparency and a promise to enhance whistleblower protection, both of which have been scrapped. Instead, the administration now forwards the narrative that whistleblowers by their very nature are a threat to national security.
