RT America on Apr 11, 2020

Chris Hedges talks to William Binney, intelligence analyst and NSA whistleblower, about the Washington Post revelations over the CIA and West German intelligence (BND) setting up a Swiss company, Crypto AG, to sell encrypted machines to more than 120 governments worldwide. From 1970 to 2018, the CIA intercepted foreign government communications. Among the countries buying the machines were France, Iran, the Vatican, and Venezuela.

“It was the intelligence coup of the century,” stated the CIA’s own report on the program.

Russia and China did not buy the service.

  4. The paranoia of the oligarchs is palpable.
    With the demise of Truthdig, it’s good to see Chris is still on the job. (Miss Mr Fish though).
