A Good American

I watched the 2017 documentary, “A Good American.” Everyone should watch this film. You can get the dvd on amazon if you don’t have Tubi or Netflix.

“A Good American tells the story of the best code-breaker the USA ever

had and how he and a small team within NSA created a surveillance tool
that could pick up any electronic signal on earth, filter it for targets
and render results in real-time while keeping the privacy as demanded
by the US constitution. The tool was perfect – except for one thing: it
was way too cheap. Therefor NSA leadership, who had fallen into the
hands of industry, dumped it – three weeks prior to 9/11. In a secret
test-run of the program against the pre-9/11-NSA database in early 2002
the program immediately found the terrorists. This is the story of
former Technical director of NSA, Bill Binney, and a program called

Bill talks about how the 3 letter agency gave false evidence to a judge and raided his place pulling weapons on his son, his wife getting dressed in her bedroom and Bill, who was in the shower.

Years later, we can identify with the pattern of giving false info to a judge and being raided.

Nothing has changed my friends. This can happen to anyone.
