I probably wouldn't do any thing.

It doesn't really get you to any kind of tipping point, so there is really no need to leak information. Most of the time the political elites just flip it around against each other: Republicans blaming it on the Democrats and vice versa.

If I were happy with the system, ignorance. Otherwise, I'd prefer information.

well,if you may take cameras inside,make snapshots of whatever should be revealed,or try taking the file on an encrypted stick.
Now,if you took pictures,you should put that info in a document. Now,go to a lousy internet cafe that has no cameras,then spread it on the net(esp. Newssites,wikileaks,anonymous,ect)

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Well...if Manning had "Anonymity, then how did his identity get revealed?

Why don't you read a bit about what really happened instead of embracing the first Non Sequiter?

Care to elaborate?

RE: How DO you whistleblow?
I don't care enough to leak shit or read leaked shit.

So the government killed a few people, I don't care.
So the government is making illegal phone taps on people of interest, I really don't give a flying rat's ass hooting fuck.

And nor does anyone else. They just like to pretend they care.
I mean like, look at the uproar, is the uproar an uproar because some schmuck from Iraq had his phone lines tapped?
Fuck no, people don't give a shit about some Iraqi douche. The uproar is about the government maybe doing something that they think effects them personally.
And it doesn't, thus why the fuck does everyone give a shit? Who cares!

Well, concerning the NSA, they haven't done any illegal phone taps.

I know, I'm just throwing it out there as a random example of something people would have a fucking cry over.

RE: How DO you whistleblow?
Here I'll tell you guys how to whistleblow.

Step one.

Drive around and find somebody else's wireless connection, or use a public wireless service.

Step two.

Use a throw away laptop to upload the information.

Step three.

Upload the information, destroy the laptop, and never say anything to any one about it.

NOTE: remember not to login to anything personal on the disposable laptop. Preferably using a fresh install of windows/linux/osx, with only the information you want to upload.

The question assumes you care, if you don't want to leak the info then the question is moot... ಠ_ಠ

RE: How DO you whistleblow?
Yeah unfortunately leaking information has to be done with extreme paranoia due to the ruling of Bradley Manning.

Personally I would recommend using a motels internet service, since they frequent travelers it should make finding out who uploaded what a bit harder to deal with.

Also checking out things like freenet, tor, or i2p to make the origin of the upload even harder to pinpoint.

Muff's guide to whistle blowing:

Step 1:

Place whistle between lips and hold it in between your lips with your lips.

Step 2:

Blow.
