“Former Top NSA Official: “We Are Now In A Police State””

William Binney

William Binney

According to Wikipedia William Binney is “…a former highly placed intelligence official with the United States National Security Agency (NSA)[3] turned whistleblower who resigned on October 31, 2001, after more than 30 years with the agency. He was a high-profile critic of his former employers during the George W. Bush administration, and was the subject of FBI investigations, including a raid on his home in 2007.

Binney continues to speak out during Barack Obama’s presidency about the NSA’s data collection policies, and continues interviews in the media regarding his experiences and his views on communication intercepts by governmental agencies of American citizens. In a legal case, Binney has testified in a sworn affidavit that the NSA is in deliberate violation of the U.S. Constitution.”

The Washington Blog says this:

Last year, Binney held his thumb and forefinger close together, and said:

We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.

But today, Binney told Washington’s Blog that the U.S. has already become a police state.

Binney told us today:

The main use of the collection from these [NSA spying] programs [is] for law enforcement. [See the 2 slides below].

These slides give the policy of the DOJ/FBI/DEA etc. on how to use the NSA data. In fact, they instruct that none of the NSA data is referred to in courts – cause it has been acquired without a warrant.

So, they have to do a “Parallel Construction” and not tell the courts or prosecution or defense the original data used to arrest people. This I call: a “planned programed perjury policy” directed by US law enforcement.

And, as the last line on one slide says, this also applies to “Foreign Counterparts.”

This is a total corruption of the justice system not only in our country but around the world. The source of the info is at the bottom of each slide. This is a totalitarian process – means we are now in a police state.

I don’t suppose anyone here doubts Binney’s point. The link above has some additional information about his presentation.

The real question is this: Is there anything that the citizens can do to stop this? And if so, what?

    Vote the people out that allow this scrap to happen. Make it loud, make it painful. It will never fully stop in the digital age because it is TOO easy to grab data, but throttle it down to something reasonable.

    Think its bad now, HAH, just wait ’til they get that UTAH monstrosity up and running later this year…then We The People will really experience what all those inmates in North Korea’s Camp 14 are going thru…Habeus Corpus??? What’s that? We The People will finally have reached the true sense of the word “collective!” And these sleezebag lawmakers in all of Washington DC approved this surveillance program of ALL, every single one of We The People.
