While spreading an atmosphere of fear after 9/11, our government has
violated our laws, prevented the Congress and courts from doing their
Constitutional duty, created a surveillance state and concentrated power in
the executive, all in the name of keeping us safe. In an effort to reverse
these ongoing unconstitutional activities, William Binney revealed the
National Security Agency's massive domestic spying program, Stellar Wind,
which intercepts domestic communications without protections for US
citizens. Binney disclosed that NSA sought and received access to
telecommunications companies' domestic and international billing records.
He told the public that, since 9/11, the agency has intercepted between 15
and 20 trillion communications. Binney also revealed that the NSA concealed
Stellar Wind under the patriotic-sounding "Terrorist Surveillance Program,"
in order to give cover to the warrantless surveillance program's violations
of Americans' constitutional rights.
