NSA illegally obtains calls & texts, claims ‘error’ Again!


 

 

The NSA will never stop its collecting everything on everyone. If you have not seen the interview of Former NSA chief William Binney which I have included, do take the time to take a look. He reveals the “Stellar Wind” project and it should worry us all. Yet our somnolent congress does nothing.

The NSA has been caught improperly collecting Americans’ phone data yet again, just months after a similar incident forced them to (supposedly) purge hundreds of millions of records captured without FISA authorization.

The agency unlawfully slurped up a “larger than expected” volume of call and text records from one US telecom provider under the metadata-collection program known as Section 215, according to a document obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union as part of its ongoing lawsuit against the agency. The heavily redacted file does not reveal which company was affected, or how many of its “call detail records” were illegally collected between October 3 and 12, 2018.

The NSA never outs themselves and admits ‘We made a mistake’ – it only comes to light when the ACLU or some group sues,” Swann told RT.

If there is no accountability for those who continue to break the law – because that’s what they’re doing – then why would they ever stop doing that?

 

 

The NSA has stated they wouldn’t mind dropping Section 215, however, president Trump has suggested he’d like it to continue indefinitely. 

Former NSA chief William Binney confirmed that the agency is only letting it go of the controversial program Section 215 because they have something much more sinister going on.

“There is no oversight of the upstream program,” Binney told RT, referring to an NSA program that collects not only phone records but emails, “chatter,” and “everything on the fiber optic network.” Upstream is “the major program that’s copying the collection of bulk data on everybody, not just in the United States but on the planet.”

The filmmaker Laura Poitras profiles William Binney, a 32-year veteran of the National Security Agency who helped design a top-secret program he says is broadly collecting Americans’ personal data.

    Initially, Americans step up to serve out of a sense of patriotism. Over time, this begins to change through a combination of factors: young staffers being trained by seniors to do what they’re told not having the big picture of the consequences; careerism sets in around the tenth year; arrogance and believing that only they have the big picture; doing things that are in direct contravention of our founding documents, and so on… with political ideology taking the helm with more than a few. We can control the senior levels through voting for the right politicians (executive level), but there isn’t much we can do about the tens of thousands of mid to lower echelon of senior bureaucrats. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. 1984 anyone?

      There is no concern regarding this which in my mind is the ultimate “hemlock” that we are accepting to drink…. As you described, the bureaucrats now have the upper hand and can destroy anyone who dares enter into their path. Finis.

    I have friends who left the NSA because it wasn’t a mentally healthy place to work.
    Paranoia.
