June 22, 2013 (AE) - There have now been three whistleblowers, from HIGHER positions than Edward Snowden, who have come out over the years and exposed that the NSA is collecting ALL DATA, that's everything, including analog data as well. The three significant NSA whistleblowers I'm aware of are:
- Russell Tice, Ex US Air Force Intelligence Agent (discussed in this article)
- Thomas Drake, Ex NSA Senior Executive (see info here)
- William Binney, Ex NSA Cryptanalyst Mathematician (see info here and see my previous article here)
My point here is that the media has been strongly promoting a "Metadata only" meme since the very beginning of the latest NSA Spying Scandal. Why has the mainstream media emphasized the innocence of the NSA by claiming they've been tracking "Metadata only", to protect us from "the terrorists", when it's well established from previous NSA whistleblowers that the NSA has been collecting and storing ALL DATA from all sources???
This is why I've been suspicious of Edward Snowden from the very beginning... he's told us nothing new, and he's avoided the elephant in the computer room...
