Top NSA Spying Chief: “If You Ever Get On Their Enemies List, Like Petraeus Did, Then You Can Be Drawn Into That Surveillance”

Government Spies On All Americans … And Harasses Anyone On Its “Enemies List”

We’ve noted for years that national security laws are being used to stifle dissent … more than to protect us from bad guys.

We noted in 2008:

While Hoover’s FBI had its “enemies list”, and carried out numerous dirty tricks including Cointelpro, the current governmental actions are a lot worse.

For example, we’ve noted that anyone who questions government actions or policies may be labeled a potential terrorist.  And we’ve also documented that spying is used to crack down on political protest.

In a new interview, the former head of the National Security Agency’s global digital data gathering program – William Binney – says that “not doing anything wrong” isn’t grounds for avoiding trouble:

The problem is, if they think they’re not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does.

Binney also confirms that the pervasiveness of spying under Obama has only “gotten worse”.

And he notes that the government will go after anyone who is on its enemies list:

If you ever get on their enemies list, like Petraeus did, then you can be drawn into that surveillance.

And see this, this, this and this.

Postscript: This is not some post-9/11 reality. Spying on Americans – and most of the other attacks on liberty – started BEFORE 9/11.

  • Hersh is very credible..He has access to very sensitive information from many credible resources.
    I do agree that the weapons being procured from Libya’s arsenals and funneled to the Syrian (CIA Contract) Rebel forces was the reason that Ambassador Stevens was placed on the hit list..I think he had a problem with it and in the end before his death he was going to go public with it …….
    Knowing the Men in Black….from my unique experience with them….Yep they sanctioned Stevens..set him up and the rest is history..
    Hilliary and Kissinger were in the plot up to their neck..Which by the way…They should be hung for it……She is very dangerous…if you cross her …you are dead on arrival….proven fact…
    Semper-Fi…May the truth set you free……….

    I love those two people!

    Mr. Binney has courage, integrity, and fine moral compass. He would be someone who could be counted on to fix this mess we have. I hope they don’t kill him.

    As for her – I can’t decide if she’s yummier than she is interesting and smart…or vice/versa… :)~

    We continue to be informed about the government and their use of surveillance, to the American people’s detriment. I have been on that enemies list and still am.
