"...the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (H.R. 3289/S.743), which among other things, would provide intelligence community workers safe, legal channels for disclosures of wrongdoing"

This is not accurate. There's already a safe (as in confidential), legal channel for disclosure of classified information - the Office of Special Counsel. See 5 U.S.C. 1213(a), (h), and (j).

The Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act would update disclosure mechanisms for disclosing information to Congress, but these channels would not be considered "safe" because they contemplate the Inspector General forwarding the disclosure to the whistleblower's management.
