Host: Jerome McDonnell of WBEZ's "Worldview"

*William Binney* had a 30-year career with the NSA, culminating as the Technical Leader for Intelligence. In that capacity he designed an information processing system named ThinThread, which was designed to sift through electronic communications while protecting the privacy of US citizens. This system was shelved (three weeks prior to 9/11) in favor of a more comprehensive system, TrailBlazer, that lacked privacy provisions. That program would grow to the massive worldwide eavesdropping system exposed by Edward Snowden. Binney resigned in protest at what he felt was a violation of the Constitutional rights of Americans.

His story is told in some detail in James Risen's book Pay Any Price: Greed, Power and Endless War.

*Marcy Wheeler* is an independent journalist who writes regularly on issues of national security, surveillance and civil liberties. She has written the blog Empty Wheel since 2011 and authored the book Anatomy of Deceit: How the Bush Administration Used the Media to Sell the Iraq War and Out a Spy
