Google and the NSA: A Non-Denial Denial?

by on March 17, 2008 · 0 comments

Chris Soghoian has an important post on the C|Net News blog examining a Google statement to him about whether it has facilitated or participated in government surveillance.

In response to Chris’ question, “Is Google sharing ‘huge volumes’ of search records with the government?”, a Google spokesperson said, “Google was not part of the NSA’s Terrorist Surveillance Program.”

That’s answer that should peg anyone’s non-denial denial detector. Google should be more direct and forthcoming.
