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 the
constitutional rights of Americans.
