Conversation with William Binney. William Binney is a former intelligence official with the U. S. National Security Agency (NSA) for over 30 years, and a whistleblower. Famous for his analyses and code breaking, Binney was a Russia specialist, starting as an analyst and ending as Technical Director. In October of 2001, Binney and his team resigned from the NSA one month after the catastrophe of 9/11. They argued that the NSA could have prevented 9/11 attacks, and they also opposed the unconstitutional explosion of surveillance directed at American citizens, and the creation of a global, private surveillance state. Binney will also discuss revelations alleging that President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and his CIA director John Brennan, created in 2015, a secret supercomputer system known as “OPERATION HAMMER,” to conduct illegal and unconstitutional government data mining and wiretapping against President Trump and millions of Americans. Binney claims the U.S. intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election is false.
