Former House oversight staffer hopes to see more "above top secret" releases - by IndyRadio
Dianne Roarke has suffered more than a decade of government harassment because she decided to go through channels as a whistleblower when she saw the NSA surveillance take a questionable turn before September 11, 2001. The reports from her and a handful of former NSA employees triggered an investigation that was 90% redacted when it was released in 2005, and in 2007 her house was raided by the FBI.
