11:05 pm
at the moment we are in a state of the universe like deception i took an oath to support for the constitution i take it all its forms i. started selling that was important and it was her act to call these people super heroes it is not so good because the church the work. for some people their superheroes for others simply traitors whistleblowers like daniel ellsberg thomas drake william binney and would
11:06 pm
snowden. hackers and activists like the wiki leaks founder julian assange and the former british secret service agent an emotional they want to support the complete surveillance of our society they oppose intelligence agencies governments and corporations and for this they are threatened hounded and imprisoned. quietly so committed what drives them. to. san francisco california. the cradle of our modern day. puter industry home to creative technicians and visionaries hackers and whistleblowers.
11:07 pm
in a suburb of san francisco lives the godfather of all whistleblowers. daniel ellsberg . and probably the only whistleblower that i know of who can make a living as a lecture because i'm the one who was put on trial for a hundred fifteen years under one who isn't involved in the president being resigning because of his crimes against lee sure he made me notorious enough. that i can make a living here who literally. studied economics science at harvard in the one nine hundred fifty s. after graduating he enrolled like many fellow whistleblowers in the military. and. you she courage here all around you of the conventional sure high courage you've been trained for you've been disciplined for but you sheer it happens you
11:08 pm
have the training works and people are risking their bodies and their life. every minute. at the end of the one nine hundred sixty s. ellsberg worked at the u.s. embassy in vietnam. he became known by publishing the secret pentagon papers which proved that the us president had lied to the american public about the vietnam war for years. ellsberg decided to make the documents public after meeting peace activists who had refused the draft. i would not have thought of doing it if i didn't have the example of many many people . who are going to prison for nonviolent resistance to the craft. in one nine hundred sixty nine ellsberg began smuggling parts of the pentagon
11:09 pm
papers out of the government agency he worked for and copy them over the following months. a total of seven thousand pages of secret documents. in march one nine hundred seventy one he passed the documents to the new york times who eventually printed them. ellsberg surrendered himself and was charged with theft and unauthorized possession of pentagon material. the trial collapsed when it came to light that nixon and illegally wiretapped ellsberg. and agents had broken into his psychiatry ists office. ellsberg there after remained a free man. if they arrest me or indict me then i will say it was only me.
11:10 pm
patricia ferrie and actually did cooperate. should happen and she i couldn't figure out why she wasn't indicted that way because she had don't want to copy. her free her fragrance folder paper or here i thought it was because she didn't want such a beautiful woman sitting next to me at the defense table in front of the jury. i would advise people now not to do what i did to reveal themselves if they can avoid it. i reveal myself for this same reason no dear. essentially we knew that other people would be suspected and maybe even charged with concern consensual evidence against. people who might look more more guilty than you did.
11:11 pm
in a way i would rather take the risks of democracy and the risks of. mr daniel ellsberg thank you. thank you have a third panelists will be joining us from russia one of the one of my real heroes and i think many people in this room many people in the hacker community many people in america. edward snowden welcome. thank you more than forty years after daniel has been n.s.a. employee edward snowden emerges as a whistleblower in the usa now has
11:12 pm
a new public enemy number one. thanks to manning and now do you i'm getting more favorable publicity. in forty years is already happening. because suddenly people who were all for putting me in prison for life before now realize that i was really a very good guy i was the. i was the good whistleblower and so i'm i'm totally you of course rejected this from the beginning that i didn't want to be a foil for. showing a badly to people that i totally admired there was a moment of hope x. hobart's conference in july in new york city. ellsberg was having a live conversation with snowden we have a front as a mayor and as members of the global community and know the broad outlines of the policies that have a significant impact on our lives and i think that's something that tom grant
11:13 pm
showed me how to do the right way. there was a moment where he said. very clearly very distinctly that i showed him the right way. i had always hope that it's now become a law. thomas drake served during the cold war in europe in the one nine hundred eighty s. with the u.s. air force which included work as a signals analyst on spy planes hoovering the soviet union so my day job is a reconnaissance orbiter country. and thereby by the way it was computers. this is it was a vast a world that you're now you you bowl is particularly your very quickly you know the old or this. is you know chaos. virtual that are
11:14 pm
in the one nine hundred ninety s. drake worked as a software developer for the cia in september two thousand and one he was hired as a senior analyst by the n.s.a. . my first ever job as nine eleven we were working you know sixteen eighteen hour days i mean it was about those four months after nine eleven or a blur because as it was just. your net we recognized that this was a significant event in history. whatever you got in a fight whatever you got the labs we need it whatever tools you can use to prosecute those behind. nine eleven do it. i was selected as the designated senior executive and say the lead up that effort to find anything we had to fight and so i did and that's where i brought to the
11:15 pm
attention of others tools techniques programs things are in the lab things are pilots things are being dissed testbed the mantra that went out from n.s.a. by general hayden he kept going around saying we just need to make americans feel safe again feel safe even at banners. and i discovered during those first couple three weeks after nine eleven all this information that we as you imagine was pouring in after nine eleven literally being use to monitor and survey oil and intercept u.s. domestic communications on an extraordinarily broad scale. i was finding this out within days of nine eleven and others were coming to me say what are we doing top. among the snowden documents were figures for the u.s. secret service budget. since september eleventh they supposedly doubled by twenty five billion to fifty two billion u.s.
11:16 pm
dollars in two thousand and thirteen. the surveillance programs continue to metastasize they continue expand it in ways that still have not been fully revealed. and this became sort of the collect all mindset mentality what does that lead to well yes you're the koreas ation you have these other interesting arrangements with certain internet providers and telecommunication concerns to temptations are enormous and it's like a you know give us access or back in or open it up and that's what happened i mean and now you're seeing a lot of this unfold. the national security agency n.s.a. for short the largest foreign intelligence agency in the usa has been responsible for the worldwide monitoring of electronic communications since one thousand nine
11:17 pm
hundred fifty two. some of the thirty five thousand employees weren't comfortable with the massive expansion of surveillance since september eleventh. all of the colleagues that i knew which was just a handful bill binnie ed loomis kirk we chose to retire from the n.s.a. . in late october two thousand and one they realize what was happening they could not stand by and see the subversion of the constitution and all the work that they had done being used for mass surveillance they left the agency i begged them to stay i chose to remain and fight from with it as long as i could i got mad at them you know so i my my objective was that counterattack i don't believe in defense you know just sitting back and being defensive i mean you have to get out there and attack so that's what i started doing that was my point it's time to attack so basically was
11:18 pm
a declaration of war. against my government. william binney mathematician and programmer initially worked for the n.s.a. as an analyst then later as the technical director of the secret service. as the boss of a six thousand strong team he developed a wiretap program that anonymously filtered and processed large volumes of data. i tried to do the the right thing right after nine eleven trying to make a contribution that would make a difference they refused to accept it so it was basically blocked that there was nothing i could do they would accept nothing from me the n.s.a. directors decided against the program from vinny's team and opted for another they collected much more data. the problem is i helped in
11:19 pm
designing the system that's in use. because i knew what was possible once they started using those programs and opening it up to massive data input on everybody in the planet so it was pretty clear that it was obvious to me how they were using it and what they're doing with it so i mean because i understood the design of the systems. and so after that when they started spying on us citizens violating the constitution i had to leave i couldn't be a part of all the criminal activity that was going on and that's fundamentally i call that treason against the country so i got out at the end of october day two thousand and one. one year later binney submitted a complaint to the u.s. defense department for wasting state funds the complaint was examined but had no effect the patriot bill binnie became a combative whistleblower a role model for many today.
11:20 pm
this man says his friend came here intelligence integrity in two thousand and fifty to really. believe represents the path you think side of that you will between two money clip this series like two hundred and he said tell me this integrity is pretty. as is yours as is told and so worse of you. so thank you thank you i knew every major leader in the city general hayden personally and i have to say that i met. with a true taker the character since i left sid. opted
11:21 pm
out of the system his colleague thomas drake fought against the violation of civil rights from within the n.s.a. . my new for the moment i stood up to my own supervisor and i went to her and said what are we doing violating the prime directive to cannot spy on americans our war. i confronted my boss i go to the oed the officer carroll so i confront him. and then he says don't ask any more questions. now you're faced with a dilemma i didn't give the order i'm not the one that was implementing the survey of the master valence program the digital dragnet what do you do i chose to blow the whistle. but how do you do that knowing there's a master valence program and knowing the n.s.a.
11:22 pm
was targeting targeting journalists. i made arrangements in encrypted form to communicate. with this reporter. then i made a decision that i would meet the reporter. that was in february of two thousand and seven. the journalist subsequently published a number of articles about the waste and mismanagement of the n.s.a. the repercussions were enormous but the n.s.a. let the attacks come to nothing as drake did not prove the central part of his criticism with documents. these tactics suddenly stopped working in two thousand and thirteen. edward snowden is material that stuff he took out made it absolutely impossible for them to deny what they were doing because it simply laid out in
11:23 pm
their terms on their slides what they were doing and it was impossible for them to deny it. i don't think mr snowden was a patriot. the way in which these disclosures happened have been. have been damaging to be united states and damaging to our intelligence capabilities. people ask if it is the patriot or traitor you know that's the headline in all these things edward snowden patriot drives me nuts the very thought you know that people could regard it was a traitor we will likely. face is the cost in human lives tomorrow's battlefield in some in some some place where where we will put our military forces. when we ask them to go into harm's way and i think that's that's the greatest cost that we face with the disclosures that have been presented so far
11:24 pm
. was the person. who did what he absolutely should have done how many people should have done what you did. what. is it. true that. tension for tomorrow she. being a patriot. obedience to authority. putting aside your obligations to your people to your country for the benefit of your government is the. way it is. until the revelations by edward snowden the warnings of intelligence agency critics were always shrugged off as speculation only after he had published all the original documents was there proof and concrete evidence provided for the first
11:25 pm
time. documents all the difference it is more risky to do that it also makes all the difference in terms of political effect. and i gave the documents less than one percent of the start and documents have been published. that's terrible. it's a terrible thing those documents do not belong. to a journalist they do not belong to him but so they do not belong to the national security agency they belong to history they are part of something that humanity has gone through every single one of us have been has been a victim of the national security agency spying all human beings who use the internet are victims of it and the victims deserve to know what has happened to them.
11:26 pm
i think the opportunity is in producing a very broad global outrage about what has happened in every country and informing all the victims of that surveillance about what is actually happening to them and releasing enough documents so that all the technical industries. hackers and computer programmers can go over and over governments can work out how to protect us. julian a son hacker and journalist who was interested in computer programming from an early age as a teenager he had already hacked into foreign data systems and military networks later he studied physics and mathematics in melbourne in two thousand and six he founded the whistle blowing web site wiki leaks which publishes secret documents of
11:27 pm
governments intelligence agencies and corporations i know ellsberg was an insider. was an insider. would say that i was never in side up. i was. inside. you know trading intelligence and big companies as a computer hacker and later as an alan analyst analyzing their material. so i had a good set of team sense for what they were about that i never had the theory that one should work for these organizations the people who were in the u.s. national security system it was like their own drug. drug of that made them powerful because they were a group that had a lot of power and that system has a way of talking about how the world works and how the united states
11:28 pm
empire is a good thing you can take a long time towards that drug out of the system and don't knows what it is nearly entirely wash that out of his system but the more recent whistleblowers they still have perhaps some way to go the only difference i have from a charge is i think the only view is i think that he probably believes more in the value of total truth or near total transparency than one to. stay. quiet.
11:29 pm
the latest news as it breaks out of this show failed vaccination rates here have dropped significantly with detailed coverage passport onto the streets and follow break the country has her way and despite being the underdog in the tournaments. from around the world there is growing resentment towards this currency you know exists here in senegal but throughout the francophone west africa. too involves. a soviet era automobile manufacturing booky books. with a decades old blue book is being torn up and we would buy and signed. under western style management and socialism works in the us you appear destined for a cock shot the russian engine on

11:33 pm
11:34 pm
and wiki leaks highly explosive documents can still be published anonymously that otherwise would be withheld through nondisclosure or censorship. according to wiki leaks all documents were checked for authenticity one major aim is to force corporations and intelligence agencies to abide to more transparency and social responsibility to shed light on their well kept secrets which cover up illegal and immoral behavior. to get on here as the front if you're going to. fall on what we was dominant. on. somebody kind of dog in afghanistan also afghanistan's entry there's just as a rhetorical counterattack which is like something out of. it is to say no no no you do that. and. unfortunately the u.s.
11:35 pm
press is sort of. so. that pretty prince this nonsense so what he needs reveals very concretely the string accurate documentation of the us is our own records shows that it was involved in one way or another in the deaths of more than one hundred twenty thousand people in iraq and afghanistan between two thousand and four and two thousand and ten. and the us government's response is maybe hypothetically as a result of this release of this material some afghan family or u.s. soldier could face risks that's the standard accusation or like what tom drake did threaten military lives exposing corruption fraud waste and abuse doesn't threaten military lives continuing them threatens military lives the end result is that the force admit last year on the earth that a single person had been harmed as a result of publications.
11:36 pm
sons demand the protection of individual privacy on the one hand and on the other radical transparency of governments and corporations but one of the motives of whistleblowers why do intelligence insiders step forward into the light risking their careers their lives to expose the wrongdoings of those in power. is there a common name a collective mission of this broad alliance and wild mix of patriotic excede good service agents and arctic hackers cyberpunks and intellectual publicists. a common theme with among all of us is that we support human rights and that we
11:37 pm
support the public's right to know information and especially when it threatens the public or threatens the democracy or freedom of individuals i mean that's the kind of common theme that goes through all of that i think but it's a lonely act that you come it as one person but i was convicted by the truth of what i knew so i made a conscious choice to yes violate a non-disclosure agreement and we also took the oath to protect and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic so that means even our government if it's violating the constitution so we have we have the responsibility to stand up against that it's the moral agency you're confronted by activity that demands a response. and you're in a pious where you have access to information you have access your eye witness such
11:38 pm
an eyewitness or you or you were brought into awareness. five especially when you've got someone have a specific going to see it. when he's been off their mind i'm just mundus contest is gonna stevens initial event association with events on this. then. tons of my phone baskets in and out of tons of. buses i'm done on site this does. have an advantage. so all of sudden bosses would need someone to fuck. off and mention the fed it isn't me me this is missive knowing full from. the. high profile leaks we fun fun fun mending friends node and. it does fun but it's kind not when it's. this absolute movement and i know steve
11:39 pm
music will have always just i mean this to call these people super heroes is not so good because it. will they get it i admire that but they're not me i'm not a superhero who thinks of themselves as the super hero me not you know we're sixteen year old. dream of. you excuse for not doing it it doesn't take a ship or here these people know these people were going to take a ship or here with michael in the fog it was no wouldn't it is the name go on to a. few months to a month on clothes and most of whom this is. often install the. sign in if it becomes act you know who become to be annoying because of us and we could put in who become tin of the on the inside thing was going with this all the . to push it's own somebody khana is presumed to do is of interest because that's
11:40 pm
all in all though. it's because in the in the chilis it was snowden intended on the at least seem to be in. thirty to seem to even want to seem to. him this is. what i see when was it puts its name this i'm getting seen him on the snowden what is this the monthly julian that is posted to be interesting in the many coming to tony's top of the top officer vowed not to let this be a nation that. is not traditional have to the consequence of events. then gets to live no if someone does it. up this with the best of a dozen sleuths are many identity for. kids as does. the peeking but some of them that's most in the pledge attention that doesn't mean we have a new mindset to most this tool.
11:41 pm
each democracy punch. each country whether it's going to be democratic or not knowing everything about the private lives of all of their citizens to religious leaders through journalists their judges and their ordinary people could be turned into informants. with those people knowing almost nothing about the good of the guy who would be ok it should go to and the people being transparent you guys this is the most ridiculous i've ever seen you know you fire everybody in the country and everybody in war you're not an invalid. and so your secret. if you
11:42 pm
don't have prissy in your communications if you can't guarantee they can hold a telephone conversation or rational mellow view stuff from the internet or read books once that is known to the authorities and it can even begin to sell censor what you say and what you read. and. is a former agent of the british national intelligence agency m i five. even going to withdraw a little bit feel normal life because you're told you can't mention your being a christian by five and that means that people tend to focus much more on their life within and i thought i'd say begin to socialize a lot more with other people there because you can talk that stuff. and also you end up mainly in the relationships with your fellow intelligence offices it is how i met my former partner and colleague david shayler. when schiller made the illegal practices of the intelligence service public and supported him in becoming a whistleblower. in one nine hundred ninety seven shortly before the publication of
11:43 pm
the secret documents the couple flew to france. they went underground for a year and subsequently lived in paris for to use in two thousand they returned to london or went to prison. was spared since then she fights for government accountability and campaigns for the rights of whistleblowers when david shayler and i ended up going on the run after the whistle on a series of crimes when i thought. we were very conscious of exactly how they could be told here celeste it is so where every week. thought well the telephone might be compromised the computer would become pleased there might be microphones in where we were living there might be little video cameras recording what we did and also people might be turned to report against us so they're all these different techniques that they can use and this is way back in the ninety's and a lawyer so even at that point when we were on the run from ever cross europe we
11:44 pm
used the only sure fire way that we need to communicate to each other securely which was to put a piece of glass or ceramic on a surface and put one sheet of paper on it and then you cover it so that nothing can read what you write in the paper you don't say anything you just write what you want on the piece of paper and then he will allow the other person to eat that message so there is no order they can be no video and there could be no imprint under that one piece of paper and of course you have to get rid of that piece of paper so you have to burn it up pulverised the ashes and the cost it the winds all to actually startle you because we know that our computers our telephones all of that can be compromised the video can be switched on the audio commiseration maybe they can log what we write on the keyboard they can even and this comes from the snowden disclosures they can even use my queries apparently to beam into the screen and read what you're typing.
11:45 pm
we live in a digital world where little remains unseen turning privacy into another luxury good. bleak science fiction visions of a powerful surveillance apparatus with seemingly endless technical possibilities. now only seems a question of time how does this change our behavior if every move we make every word we say is recorded a nationalized which roles will we have to play and whose writing script. having lived with that sense in demick surveillance i can tell you it's a corrosive to human spirit so once you lose that sense privacy and you start to
11:46 pm
self censor you start to be an effective and fully integrated system of that country supremacy in my view is the last defense against a slide towards a police state or to tell a terran isn't if you let go of your rights from moment you've lost them for a lifetime and that's why this matters is because it happened and we didn't know me or told. so you say you have nothing to hide see it nothing to worry about i have nothing to fear you'll hear all the language ok fine church heard your individual or her house
11:47 pm
yes well just give your keys your car or rent a car or other road of the city yes you have your purpose do you use of google eulogy you know if. you have facebook or give me all your passwords you have a medical records trudeau's over to me to oh by the way all those bank accounts and all phone records you're just given to me for safe keeping you can have independent courts can you have an independent critch none of the n.s.a. now has the potential to know every source of every journalist and every story. following the e-mail. following the people with their g.p.s. with their with their rifles. this is. the op this year here and. talk to me at the meeting master general is not about. it's not about surrendering me it's about surveillance us.
11:48 pm
it's about watching the company for everybody in the country and on a global scale. in harsh contrast to the recently emerged facts great public outcry has not yet been heard. now why don't people care in the u.k. it's a very easy answer partly it's cultural because he still in love with james bond and political leaders immediately came out in defense of the intelligence agencies saying we know what they do they follow the law everyone go back to sleep don't worry so the train you sit in the u.k. and it wasn't i think in as i said a usa brazil and germany but it's amazing how quickly people forget or in this and
11:49 pm
this does my message to. the next move in pursuit of. this mission and something kind of dawned on to. me in bushland. t.v. nixon burger. king in that. when it became known in autumn two thousand and thirteen that the private cell phone of german chancellor angela merkel was tapped by the n.s.a. the public outcry in germany was initially large until then the german american friendship had been close and germany believed to be an equal partner the united
11:50 pm
states. new friends spine and friends of course they do everybody does this i mean we caught the israelis spying on us several times what did that do to our relationship but not really anything because we know everybody does that ok if you're a leader of a country in the world you're a target everybody wants to know what you're thinking so you are a target friends and foes everybody's looking to see or trying to find out what you're thinking universally true i mean that's that's why diplomacy was started right back and thousands of years ago so so i mean it's nothing new chancellor merkel when she found out as to her private phone was being tapped i mean she should have and understood that from the beginning i mean there and her security should have told her that from the beginning and given her some protection since all the leaders understood it the fact that it's exposed you have to be a object maybe publicly but in reality afterward you the relationship is too
11:51 pm
important to jeopardize just for a simple thing that you already knew was happening. as you have anything i know of this dimension. this into this year that in different states in fairness that would be key leaks it's the n.s.a. affair the. t.v. it's own was all ha's and few see. good. kind on the mukesh. what's the cinema before google now to only give us a visit that's only part of my. problem
11:52 pm
