Former NSA Tech Director William Binney is one of the best analysts in NSA history. acTVism Munich was fortunate to interview Binney exclusively for the first in their ongoing series of video interviews featuring whistleblowers sharing their inside story.
Munich, Germany — William Binney achieved a top level position of NSA Tech Director within the National Security Agency and then resigned on October 31, 2001, after more than three decades of employment to blow the whistle on the agency’s mass surveillance program — he asserted the NSA was “purposefully violating the Constitution.”
Mass surveillance directly contradicted the targeted spying the NSA claimed it was practicing, and that its technology is “better than anything that the KGB, the Stasi, or the Gestapo and SS ever had.”
Binney, Snowden, and many whistleblowers have faced the biting criticism brought by those unwilling to believe their government capable of violating the rights of the people.
acTVism Munich was fortunate to interview Binney exclusively for the first in their ongoing interview series featuring whistleblowers with the inside story.
With its goal of divulging those issues otherwise buried by an excess of corporate media propaganda, acTVism’s investigative journalism and high-quality videos feature pertinent information that you’re not being told.

Code Red: A Global Initiative
In 2014 a group of the world’s most renowned privacy activists, whistleblowers, technologists and legal experts united to work on the development of a global initiative to fight surveillance.
Led by privacy veteran Simon Davies and former MI5 intelligence officer Annie Machon, the project has developed into the Code Red initiative.
Its aim is to create the next evolutionary step in the growing movement to curb excessive government power.
The project will build bridges between the technology, media, legal and policy worlds and will become a strategic hub for the many activists working in this arena.
Code Red will also create a clearing house for information in the anti-surveillance movement and will support whistleblowers and sources.
The following whistleblowers provide their views on the issue of privacy in the video above:
William Binney: Former highly placed intelligence official with the National Security Agency (NSA) turned whistleblower who resigned on October 31, 2001, after more than 30 years with the agency.
