Meet Three American Heroes Whose Lives Barack Obama Tried To Destroy

"That is the question posed by the new documentary Silenced, which follows three national security whistleblowers who fight to reveal the darkest corners of America's war on terror while enduring the wrath of a government increasingly determined to maintain secrecy," Democracy Now! reports.

"The three are former Justice Department lawyer Jesselyn Radack, former senior National Security Agency official Thomas Drake, and former CIA officer John Kiriakou.

"On the heels of the film's premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, we speak with director James Spione about the extraordinary lengths the government has gone to in order to wreak havoc on the whistleblowers' personal lives through a sustained campaign of intimidation and harassment."

Here's Democracy Now!'s interview of Spione, including a trailer of the film. A transcript of the interview is here.
