Some people say that whistleblowers should be put on pedestals as some of the greatest martyrs mankind has to offer. They tell the truth, and some believe that is patriotic, not traitorous. If you ever wanted to know corporation and government secrets, individuals like Mark Edward Whitacre helped you know.

Known as one of the most popular and well-known whistleblowers, he came to attention in 1995, when he became the highest-level corporate executive in US history to become an FBI whistleblower.

He actually pleaded guilty to criminal charges of embezzlement, tax evasion, and money-laundering before. He stole $9 million from the agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland. In the same time, he was secretly taping conversations for the government.

Even Hollywood has made a movie about his life. Called “The Informant”, Matt Damon stars as Whitacre. This documentary tells the story of his life, and how he worked for the government.
