US Government Watching, Storing Citizen Emails
It’s disappointing, but unsurprising to learn from an NSA whistleblower that the U.S. government may be storing emails and other personal data on servers with FBI access. William Binney, a retired NSA codebreaker who ceased service in 2001 as a matter of conscience, warned Americans that nothing they do online is private — including sending emails.
The retired NSA analyst said the following to Russia Today:
[T]he FBI has access to the data collected, which is basically the emails of virtually everybody in the country. And the FBI has access to it. All the congressional members are on the surveillance too, no one is excluded. They are all included.
