And, it is leading to much more dredible sources regarding what is going on stepping forward.
The best expose on PRISM now comes from the 40 year career NSA employee, William Benny, who became the director of Intelligence there under Geroge W. Bush. He has gone public since Snowden and detailed the full capabilities of PRISM and what the NSA was doing.
However, he has done us all a service by blowing the lid on this for whatever reasons. PRISM and the programs associated with it are establishing an hugely obtrusive Federal surveillance of all American citizens. What was billed to be directed only at ISlamic terrorists...we could "trust them," on that, has turned into a massive program that by default gathers info ON ALL US.
A .guv program implemented under the auspices of "national security" has wound up a Trojan Horse, betraying a citizenry which assumed our governance would continue acting as our guardians -- not Peeping Toms.
Instead, Mosque activity is near-verboten, monitoring Muslim communications is sloppy (see Boston Marathon).
Moreover and inexplicably, official immigration policy has been to import AND subsidize Muslim immigration. A disturbing Big Picture of systematic constitutional abuse is emerging as Snowden is its catalyst. There is NO justification in the name of "security" to completely trash the 4th Amendment.
JH, I just read that 2nd interview. I’m not sure how many times I said “S.O.A.B.!!!” (the real words, not the acronym.)
Binney may be a bit in left field, but still, he was a senior employee / dept. head at NSA...
There’s more from him available, if you do a web search.
No he did not do me any favors..nor most Americans who already knew.
More importantly he is a man who is hunkered down in a communist country..surrounded by attorneys and advisors...spilling what we have already know...to any nation around the world.
It’s showtime..and he’s taking many “viewers” with him....while our country is being invaded, torn down and destroyed from within....we watch a 29 year old who’s defected and stolen intelligence that has interfered with how countries are now negotiating.
He’s a traitor...and a defector..a liar and a fool.
