Summary "Bill Binney was a brilliant cryptologist, long-time National Security Agency analyst and technical director. He developed a sophisticated program named Thin Thread for gathering data capable of providing clues, in real time, of potential terrorist threats. Built-in safeguards would have prevented the massive surveillance methods later exposed by Edward Snowden. Why was this program killed off? Who was behind it?"--Container.
