Submission + - Government releases DoD report critical of NSA (dailykos.com) 1

decora writes: "Jesselyn Radack of the Government Accountability Project has a summary of the newly released DoD Inspector General report (pdf) on NSA's Thinthread and Trailblazer programs. The DoD found that NSA "disregarded solutions to urgent national security needs" and that "TRAILBLAZER was poorly executed and overly expensive". NSA contractors had a "fear of management reprisal" for cooperating with the DoD audit. The FBI later raided the homes of several people involved with the report, and Thomas Drake faced Espionage Act charges for retaining information from it. Those charges were dropped two weeks ago. Radack and GAP represent Drake on whistleblower issues."
