Read what whistleblower William Binney just said about the NSA, SHOCKING!
Binney worked for the NSA for 30 years, when he was forced to resigned in October 2011 after reporting about waste in the agency.
Now he has become a critic the NSA’s surveillance tactics, when asked about the resent leaks in the White House he makes a very interesting point. Putting the blame clearly on the NSA for the Flynn leak.
Binney stated of the NSA: “If they weren’t behind it, they certainly had the data. Now the difference here is that FBI and CIA have direct access inside the NSA databases. So, they may be able to go directly in there and see that material there. And NSA doesn’t monitor that. They don’t even monitor their own people going into databases[…] So, any way you look at it, ultimately the NSA is responsible because they are doing the collection on everybody inside the United States. Phone calls. Emails. All of that stuff.”
Of course the National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s conversations with Russian officials could have been picked up because the NSA listens in on the Russians, not that they were necessarily spying specifically on Flynn.
But that doesn’t apply with the other leaks, as Binney points out.
Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: “Absolutely. How did they get the phone call between the president and the president of Australia? Or the one that he made with Mexico? Those are not targeted foreigners.”
