William Binney Quotes:
“The KGB, the Stazi, and the Gestapo could never have dreamt of having anything as great or as comprehensive as this capacity to monitor the population. Their primary focus, they tried to get information about their population so they could control it, and that’s fundamentally what dictatorships and totalitarian systems do around the world. And that unfortunately is the way [the US government] is going.”
“The data that’s being assembled is about everybody, and from that data then they can target anyone they want.”
“Nobody could show anything in court, it was done with the secret court, under secret interpretations of laws and so on. This was all a secret government.“
“What they did, they wanted to charge him with having classified material, so they crossed it out [the unclassified mark] and put a classified mark on it …. it’s framing people. That’s basically what they tried to do to us. They tried to fabricate evidence to convict us and put us away for 35 years, just like they tried to do with [Thomas Drake].”
“What they’re doing is covering up the biggest swindle that the world has ever seen. They’ve swindled hundreds of billions of dollars out of us the paying taxpayers – [or] added it the debt.”
