High-Level NSA Whistle Blower Reveals NSA’s Ultimate Goal
The NSA is gathering and storing more than meta data.
Recently, William Binney, an ex-NSA code breaker and now whistle blower, revealed the end game of the NSA’s data collection and storage efforts.
The NSA isn’t simply gathering data on terrorist activity.
They are gathering information on ALL of us.
Keep in mind, they are gathering all of this data with virtually no oversight or restraints.
The NSA’s end game?
“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.”
Perhaps Orwell’s 1984 was more of an instruction manual for our government rather than a warning for us as citizens?
Funny how we read 1984 and discussed the evils of communist USSR as a totalitarian regime.
Never did we imagine we’d turn into Big Brother.
