Google and the CIA

Dailytech has a story of a former CIA officer who claims that Google and the CIA are in bed together.

Steele said, “I think that Google has made a very important strategic mistake in dealing with the secret elements of the U.S. government – that is a huge mistake and I’m hoping they’ll work their way out of it and basically cut that relationship off.”

In reference to Google’s fight against the U.S. Department of Justice for the privacy of its users, Steele claims that it was an elaborate charade intended for the public eye.

“Google was a little hypocritical when they were refusing to honor a Department of Justice request for information because they were heavily in bed with the Central Intelligence Agency, the office of research and development,” concluded Steele.

If true, it looks like Google is indeed becoming evil. All the more reason to search anonymously using Black Box!

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all. Google is too important for the CIA not to infiltrate. Back in the 70’s the Frank Church Senate investigation found that over 400 media organizations had been infiltrated by the CIA. I don’t know if it means that Google has bad intentions. I am under the impression that the CIA can infiltrate without the knowledge of the decision-makers of an organization.

    I like Windows Live search,myself, but I might be just a little biased.

    Google is a strange, strange entity. Their business model is innovative, but I do not think that it can last.

    In the information age, knowledge is power and all that, and as my seven-year=old daughter says, “Google knows everything.” I can see the allure of such a connection for both parties, but man it just plain creeps me out to know that it’s going on.
