UPDATE: 10Sept2012: Stellar Wind: The Secret NSA Domestic Spying Program; Whistleblower William Blinney Tells All
(Activist Post) – As the anniversary of 9/11 approaches, instead of listening to mainstream media and government propaganda about what happened that day, and how all of the police state measures that have followed have made us more free, we should continue to uncover the lies of what really happened.
Now that the entire police state apparatus has obviously turned inward, as admitted in numerous government announcements and reports that are putting everyday Americans on terror watch lists, whistleblowers are stepping forward to reveal just how extensive and ongoing the surveillance has been. Instead of being heralded for their patriotism, these whistleblowers are being persecuted by the U.S. government. However, key insiders such as Sibel Edmonds, Susan Lindauer, and Thomas Drake have prevailed to reveal a startling amount of information that should concern any American who values civil liberties.
Former top NSA mathematician and code breaker, William Binney, has gone on record to publicly reveal the scope of a top-secret surveillance program that has directly targeted everyday Americans following 9/11. He is sounding an alarm about the massive scope of this project that engages in 24/7 warrantless wiretapping of the American population.
Surveillance and data collection of the U.S. population has been in the making for some time, perhaps best known through programs like ECHELON, but to have a 32-year, top-level veteran of the NSA reveal in the video below the domestic component of a program code named Stellar Wind, and his concerns that we are heading down the road to totalitarianism if not brought under control, should be a wake-up call to those who still believe that we are immune from the treatment that has been dished out across the rest of the planet.
Blinney has previously stated that the U.S. government retains “most” e-mail communications. In an interview with documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras published by The New York Times (itself thesource of leaks to intelligence agencies) A clearly fed-up Blinney begins by stating:
I’m tired of my government harassing me and violating the Constitution. Yes, I’ll talk to you.
He goes further to trace the origins and methods of a program which led to his resignation, as well as many other Justice Department officials, and the subsequent harassment he endured by his own government. He states that the scope of the data collection forms a map that can “show your entire life over time.”
The NSA is set to complete its $2 billion fortress of domestic surveillance by September 2013 that, as Blinney says, can store 100 years worth of electronic information. Coupled with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act up for renewal in December, insiders and citizens alike need to have the courage to confront the NSA betrayal of the very people whose money is funding their increasing power.
