    One Of The NSA's Original Whistleblowers Says The Goal Is 'Total Population Control'

    William Binney is one of the highest-level whistleblowers to ever emerge from the NSA. He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold War but resigned soon after September 11, disgusted by Washington’s move towards mass surveillance.

    On 5 July he spoke at a conference in London organized by the Centre for Investigative Journalism and revealed the extent of the surveillance programs unleashed by the Bush and Obama administrations.

    “At least 80% of fibre-optic cables globally go via the US”, Binney said. “This is no accident and allows the US to view all communication coming in. At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US. The NSA lies about what it stores.”

    The NSA will soon be able to collect 966 exabytes a year, the total of internet traffic annually. Former Google head Eric Schmidt once argued that the entire amount of knowledge from the beginning of humankind until 2003 amount to only five exabytes.

    Binney, who featured in a 2012 short film by Oscar-nominated US film-maker Laura Poitras, described a future where surveillance is ubiquitous and government intrusion unlimited.

    “The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control”, Binney said, “but I’m a little optimistic with some recent Supreme Court decisions, such as law enforcement mostly now needing a warrant before searching a smartphone.”

    The entire planet is aware of the NSA's Orwellian agenda, yet this fascist agency is still doing business as usual, thanks to a complicit bunch of criminals known as the US government.

    it's time to improve the way we control the people that we employ to run the business of government, so that they cannot misuse that cool technology.

    Well documented and we were quite warned long ago.


    In the need to develop a capacity to know what potential enemies are doing, the United States government has perfected a technological capability that enables us to monitor the messages that go through the air. Now, that is necessary and important to the United States as we look abroad at enemies or potential enemies. We must know, at the same time, that capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left such is the capability to monitor everything—telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide.
    If this government ever became a tyrant, if a dictator ever took charge in this country, the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back because the most careful effort to combine together in resistance to the government, no matter how privately it was done, is within the reach of the government to know. Such is the capability of this technology.

    I don't want to see this country ever go across the bridge. I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return.[9][10][11]

    With Habeas Corpus effectively repealed in this country by our beneficent government, it is safe to say that tyranny is rather well established here.

    Yes, but it has arrived so incrementally that it has been accepted as normal. Fear and security following crisis' is the only time you typically see quick advancements, as with the years immediately following 9/11. And our left and right partisans give cover to their parties and presidents, seeing party loyalty as superior to country and constitution. so it will continue.

    Doesn't seem far off. The NSA at this point has proven more a danger than a benefit. Time to get rid of it.

    Yes, get rid of the capacity for signals intelligence. Excellent idea.
