驚爆謊言 | A Good American
一個可以阻止 911 恐怖攻擊事件的系統卻因為國家安全局的謊言和腐敗而停住了。前國安局情報員比爾比尼和他的團隊發明了一個可以監控任何電子訊號，並過濾出特定訊息的系統，但在 911 恐怖攻擊事件的前三周，這個系統卻被國安局放棄。本片清晰而冷靜地分析此事件背後的腐敗、謊言以及私欲。
The best code-breaker the US ever had together with a small team within NSA starts to develop a revolutionary surveillance program. It can pick up any electronic signal on earth, filter it for targets, render results in real time and all of it without invading privacy. The program is perfect – except for one detail: it’s too low cost. Therefore the tax dollar hungry NSA management dumps it – three weeks prior to 9/11. This is the story of Bill Binney, a program called ThinThread and how the perfect alternative to mass surveillance was ditched by NSA for money.
