"Whistleblowers are essential because we live in an imperfect world.  If we could trust governments to always behave ethically and not be acting in the interests of private individuals or wealthy companies which donate money to a particular party, we wouldn't need whistleblowers....many politicians are deeply corrupt ..the system of government has been twisted towards wealthy individuals and for that reason we need people in the system to call foul and point out the abuses which are occurring."

You would never hear a statement like this from any high ranking public servant in the U.S. and if they did make a statement it would not be published in the mass media.
