Watch the enclosed YouTube Video and do an Internet search on Mark Klein and Whistleblowing at NSA and then answer the following questions.
1. Of course, this is not the only instance of someone “going public”; the former NSA employee Edward Snowden allegedly did something much more serious recently. Do you agree that it is more ethical to protect the public than one’s employer? Why?
2. Based on what you read in this chapter, what steps should AT&T take to make sure that one of its employees doesn’t find it necessary to blow the whistle on them again?
3. What rights (if any) do you think employers violate when they try to silence whistleblowers?
4. If Mr. Klein were still an AT&T employee, what discipline (if any) do you think would be appropriate for his whistleblowing, and why?
