Bill Binney, a former highly placed intelligence official at the US National Security Agency (NSA), who, after more than 30 years of service, resigned in 2001 and became a whistleblower, believes a new investigation must be conducted into the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 in New York City.
Binney recently signed the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s petition, stating, “There is clearly evidence that needs to be considered in a review of what happened in 9/11. We the public deserve an honest complete review of the facts with scientific interpretation and implications as to what really happened,” the Washington’s blog reported on Sunday.
Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is a US non-profit organization of architects, engineers, and a demolition expert who dispute the results of government investigations into the September 11 attacks, including the 9/11 Commission Report.
Founded in 2006, the group demands that Congress pursue “a truly independent investigation” into the September 11 attacks as they believe government agency investigations into the collapse of the World Trade Center have not addressed the “massive evidence for explosive demolition.”
Binney was the original NSA whistleblower and one of two NSA veterans whose example inspired Edward Snowden.
A 32-year NSA veteran, Binney was the agency’s former senior technical director until he retired in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks. He is widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, one of the world’s top crypto-mathematicians who managed thousands of employees at the agency.
According to Binney, the NSA used the 9/11 attacks as a justification to start a giant mass surveillance. In 2012, he estimated that the NSA had intercepted 20 trillion communications “transactions” of Americans such as phone calls, emails, and other forms of data.
Binney continues to speak out against the NSA’s data collection policies, and continues interviews in the media regarding his experiences and his views on communication intercepts by governmental agencies of American citizens.
In a legal case, Binney has testified in a affidavit that the NSA is in deliberate violation of the US Constitution.
