The Intelligence Apparatus No Longer Protects Our Country From Terrorism … We Need Fresh Legs
William Binney is the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information. A 32-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, Binney was the senior technical director within the agency and supervised thousands of NSA employees.
Binney sent Washington’s Blog an article from Monday showing that a member of the cyber collective Anonymous tipped off Texas police to the imminent shootings by Muslim extremists.
This is the objective of intelligence agencies that I worked in – predict intentions and capabilities in advance. I agree with my VIPS [i.e. Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity] associates, hire Anonymous and fire the bums we got including the intelligence committees and the FISC [U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court].
After all, when was the last time our “intelligence community” predicted anything like this in advance????
Binney and other top NSA whistleblowers have previously explained that the intelligence agencies should have stopped 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Paris shootings and other terrorist attacks. But corruption prevented them from stopping the attacks.
Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity – a group composed of former high-level military and intelligence officials – recently called for independent intelligence analysis to keep our country safe.
