Stellar Wind

There’s a chill wind blowing through the our government.

Since 9/11 it’s been known that the NSA has been wiretapping email and phone calls as part of a domestic spying program. Now the evidence is piling up that as of December of this year, a new data center in Utah is getting ready to come on line to store every single bit of data they can capture from banking transactions to your Amazon shopping history.

Now the guy who wrote an important piece of the data-mining software (he originally wrote it to spy on the Soviet Union) is coming out in public protest to his software is being used to spy on US citizens. Documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras profiles William Binney, a 32-year veteran of the National Security Agency, in her upcoming film to be released in 2013.

Wired magazine ran a profile on the NSA datacenter in Utah back in March.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (eff.org) has filed suit against the NSA and has been pursuing the government in court. Read more at Jewel v. NSA.
