Disagree with U.S. Policy? You May be a 'High Threat' to the Pentagon (VIDEO)

"Today in prefigurative policing: The Pentagon has a program that teaches federal workers to view colleagues as potential "insider threats" if they are vocally critical of U.S. foreign policy.

The program encourages government workers to keep Orwellian tabs on their co-workers and should be seen in the context of the Obama administration's relentless crackdown on leakers and whistle-blowers who shed light on the darker sides of U.S. government policy."*

We're supposed to have freedom of speech in the U.S., but if you're a government employee, you might not. According to documents, federal employees are told to view coworkers as "insider threats" if they disagree with government policy, and this could even amount to treason. Is this the result of this administration's obsession with leakers? Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
