Barack Obama ran for President on a platform of reversing the Bush-era policy of using the NSA to conduct illegal surveillance. But invoking the Espionage Act of 1917, the Obama adminstration has made unprecedented attacks on government employees who inform the press about NSA surveillance.

At 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, the Columbus Film Council is screening Robert Greenwald's new film War on Whistleblowers: Free Press and the National Security State at the Drexel Theatre, 2254 East Main Street. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.

The Obama administration "has pressed charges against no fewer than six government employees, more than all previous presidential administration combined," said Juan Gonzalez of Democracy Now.

"In the film, Greenwald also interviews government oversight experts and investigtive journalists who warn about the chilling effect prosecutions may have on potential whistleblowers and the journalists who help them."
