Before the NSA gathered matadata, but now they gather calls. The former employee of the NSA William Binney reported that the agency traced almost all telephone conversations of citizens and nearly 80% of worldwide fiber-optical cables were passed through the territory of the USA.
It’s not surprising, because it allows the government to trace all entering communications. At least 80% of our calls and our personal data are recorded and stored in the USA while the NSA denies that they collect everything. The NSA main aim is to control the whole population completely.
However decisions which were made by the Supreme Court recently encourage very much, for example, law enforcement are obliged to receive the warrant on access to user‘s personal data.
Binney’s statement confirms that data provided by the FBI‘s former agent Tim Clemente after act of terrorism in Boston was true. He explained that during the investigation law enforcement received all details of the telephone conversation between the suspected Tamerlan Tsarnayev and his wife Katherine Russell.
When a journalist asked how the government could obtain all data, he answered simply and laconic: "Welcome to America". All is already known during the conversation, and is intercepted despite that we know it, or not. Also Clemente explained that all phone calls are intercepted even during conversation, and nobody is interested in our opinion.
