Who is Q?
Dec 27, 2017
The recent internet posts coming from “Q” appear to be posted by Thomas Drake, who wears a lapel pin in the form of a Q.
He began working for the NSA on September 11, 2001. He has been a long-time whistleblower, working against corruption and waste. Certainly, he would be in a position to know many things and has the training as an analyst to understand the meaning of events. As a long-time advocate of truth in government, he would also be the type of person who would write these posts.
Below is part of his story, but I suggest that you take the time to read a more extensive biography posted on Wikipedia here:
Thomas Andrews Drake (born 1957) is a former senior executive of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), a decorated United States Air Force and United States Navy veteran, and a whistleblower. In 2010 the government alleged that Drake mishandled documents, one of the few such Espionage Act cases in U.S. history. Drake's defenders claim that he was instead being persecuted for challenging the Trailblazer Project. He is the 2011 recipient of the Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling and co-recipient of the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence (SAAII) award.
On June 9, 2011, all 10 original charges against him were dropped. Drake rejected several deals because he refused to "plea bargain with the truth". He eventually pleaded to one misdemeanor count for exceeding authorized use of a computer. Jesselyn Radack of the Government Accountability Project, who helped represent him, called it an act of ”civil disobedience.” …
In 2000 he was hired as a software systems quality specialist and management and information technology consultant for Columbia, Maryland-based Costal Research & Technology Inc. (CRTI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Alexandria, Virginia-based Computer Systems Management, Inc. (CSMI). In late 2001 he went to work at the NSA as a full-time employee at the Signals Intelligence Directorate at Fort Meade, Maryland, with his actual first day on the job as an NSA employee being September 11, 2001.
