Whistle-blower says NSA is only interested in control.

With all the attention focused on Edward Snowden, the world forgets that he is not the first NSA whistle-blower. Nor might Snowden be the last. William Binney blew the whistle first following the 9-11 attacks on the United States and a third whistle-blower is probably leaking new information to the media.

William Binney praised Edward Snowden and warned the agency is obsessed with control.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to The Guardian, William Binney is the highest-level NSA whistle-blower, resigning from the agency in disgust after the 9-11 attacks. Binney cited the organization's move towards mass surveillance as the reason for his resignation.

On July 5, he spoke at a confidence in London in which he said about 80 percent of the world's internet traffic is monitored in detail. And by next year the NSA will have the ability to capture all of the internet's traffic in real time.

Fight back against Evil by spreading God's word!

This is not "metadata" as has been previously suggested, but it is every keystroke, every image, and every instant message sent online. Binney also added, "The NSA lies about what it stores."

That's refreshing to know - the organization simply lies. It's also unsurprising. But the question is why?

According to Binney, the reason is nothing less than control of the world's population.  Control for the sake of control. This was also echoed by Snowden earlier this year when he released a letter saying the NSA's motivation was about control.

The NSA also spies on close allies the same as it does on enemies. Recent spying revelations have strained relations between the USA and its allies, most notably Germany.

According to The Guardian, "The NSA will soon be able to collect 966 exabytes a year, the total of internet traffic annually. Former Google head Eric Schmidt once argued that the entire amount of knowledge from the beginning of humankind until 2003 amount to only five exabytes."

Binney also praised Edward Snowden for his bravery in coming forward to reveal to the public what the NSA has been doing. He said he regretted that he did not do as Snowden did and take documents with him.

He accused the NSA of collecting all the information they could, but of stopping no attacks. He called the NSA the greatest threat to national security in the United States since the American Civil War.

As Binney speaks and Snowden warns, a new source may be opening inside the NSA, leaking new information about what is happening there. Recently the source code for a secret program known as "XKeyscore" was leaked to the media. That code did not come from Edward Snowden, but a new source within the NSA. Could more NSA employees be developing a conscience about their work?

Presently, the NSA hoovers up virtually all the information on each individual who uses the internet. Soon, all that information will be gathered in real time. Despite this mass surveillance, safety of the American people has not increased.

The NSA can tell if you're having an affair, what you like to eat, what places you visit and who your friends and enemies are. The agency can compile a complete dossier on any individual filled with all sorts of detail. This has been confirmed by Binney and now Sowden and leaks of such information have become public knowledge.

Despite this incredible power, the agency cannot point to a single terrorist plot it has foiled. Not a single ring of pedophiles has been busted using NSA information. However, the IRS has been pointed to tax evaders by the NSA, an illegal act, discovered by accident earlier this year when court documents were improperly redacted.

In fact, Congress is asking the all-powerful NSA to hand over copies of Lois Learner's allegedly deleted emails.

There is supposed to be a tradeoff between privacy and safety, however we are quickly learning that this is a myth; there is no tradeoff, only loss.
