NSA Whistle-Blower Tells All - Op-Docs: The Program
William Binney, a 32-year veteran of the
National Security Agency, helped design
a top-secret program he says is broadly
collecting Americans' personal data.
The program, called Stellar Wind is ongoing.
It is a subversion of the Constitution and of
any number of laws.

Top Justice Department officials threatened
to resign in 2004 because Stellar Wind violated
the law. Their objections to the law are not
public nor do Americans currently have any
say in this matter.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that
oversees the NSA is scheduled to be reauthorized
in December 2012. Thirteen senators have signed
a letter expressing concern that the law allows
the collection of personal data from US citizens.

As Binney says, "We can call ourselves a democracy
but that doesn't mean that we will stay that way."
