Russell Tice, a "20-year veteran" who served as a "high level intelligence official" with both the National Security Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency, is the "whistleblower who was dismissed" from the NSA in May 2005, "just days after he publicly urged Congress to pass stronger protections for federal whistleblowers facing retaliation." Tice "condemns reports" that the NSA "has been engaged in eavesdropping on U.S. citizens without court warrants. Tice has volunteered to testify before Congress about illegal black ops programs at the NSA. Tice said, 'The freedom of the American people cannot be protected when our constitutional liberties are ignored and our nation has decayed into a police state.'" [1][2][3]

The National Security Agency has warned Tice "that he should not testify to Congress about accusations of illegal activity at NSA because of the secrecy of the programs involved," Bill Gertz reported in the January 12, 2006, Washington Times.
