NSA … Tragedy and Hope

 

The NSA’s Enigma Machine …

Enigma

KL-7 ADONIS, POLLUX US rotor-based cipher machine – KL-7 was an electro-mechanical rotor-based off-line cipher machine, developed by the National Security Agency (NSA) in the US. It was introduced in 1952 and served for many years as the main cipher machine of the US and NATO. It is relatively light-weight (9.3 kg) and is essentially a more advanced version of the German Enigma machine. It replaced the wartime SIGABA (ECM Mark II) and in some countries, such as the UK and Canada, also the CCM and the British Typex machines.  For article, go here https://goo.gl/urjAVm

Tragedy and Hope

Published on Jan 28, 2015

A 36-year veteran of America’s Intelligence Community, William Binney resigned from his position as Director for Global Communications Intelligence (COMINT) at the National Security Agency (NSA) and blew the whistle, after discovering that his efforts to protect the privacy and security of Americans were being undermined by those above him in the chain of command. The NSA data-monitoring program which Binney and his team had developed — code named Thin Thread — was being aimed not at foreign targets as intended, but at Americans (code named as Stellar Wind); destroying privacy here and around the world. Binney voices his call to action for the billions of individuals whose rights are currently being violated. William Binney speaks out in this feature-length interview with Tragedy and Hope’s Richard Grove, focused on the topic of the ever-growing Surveillance State in America. On January 22, 2015: (Berlin, Germany) – The Government Accountability Project (GAP) is proud to announce that retired NSA Technical Director and GAP client, William “Bill” Binney, will accept the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence Award today in Berlin, Germany. The award is presented annually by the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence (SAAII) to a professional who has taken a strong stand for ethics and integrity.

“If they are after you, they are going to get you one way or the other!”

NSA & Intel Community are Empire Builders

“It’s a totalitarian procedure ….”

Empire building, “…keep this going!”

Totalitarianism #2

Atrocities

The NSA leadership are Borgs who need Lobotomies.

Broken Laws

Statistical Accomplishments ………….. False Claims

Critics say bureau is running a sting operation across America, targeting vulnerable people by luring them into fake terror plots.  From the Guardian

On “Your World” today, Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the recently released FBI report that admits no major terror cases were cracked by the NSA’s surveillance program.

FBI agents haven’t cracked any terrorism cases thanks to the snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday.

The Washington Times reported:

Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations.

The FBI did finally come up with procedures to try to minimize the information it was gathering on nontargets, but it took far too long, Mr. Horowitz said in the 77-page report, which comes just as Congress is trying to decide whether to extend, rewrite or entirely nix Section 215.

Backers say the Patriot Act powers are critical and must be kept intact, particularly with the spread of the threat from terrorists. But opponents have doubted the efficacy of Section 215, particularly when it’s used to justify bulk data collection such as in the case of the National Security Agency’s phone metadata program, revealed in leaks from former government contractor Edward Snowden.

The new report adds ammunition to those opponents, with the inspector general concluding that no major cases have been broken by use of the Patriot Act’s records-snooping provisions.

Napolitano told Neil Cavuto that the Patriot Act is “unconstitutional.”

“I hate to say I told you so, but I’m going to say it, I told you so,” Napolitano said. “Those of us who believe that the entire spying program violates the Constitution have been arguing not only is it unconstitutional, but it does not work.”

“We now have proof positive from the inspector general of the Justice Department himself…not a single case, not one, not one prosecution, not one conviction has been helped as a result of this spying,” he added.
