The golden age of whistleblowing

Since 1917, eleven whistleblowers have been accused of violation of the American Espionage Act, and over a half of these have occured during Obama's years in office. SILENCED depicts how the mentality within the American government changed after 9/11, and how the methods of protecting national security grew increasingly ruthless and violent. The documentary follows three american citizens who blew the whistle on wrongdoings comitted by American law enforcement authorities in the war on terror. And as their stories unfold, we learn how much they have had to sacrifice in order to get the truth out there.
