Tell US Congress: Stop The Mass Surveillance!

https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/...ction_KEY=9260

Quote:
A new report in the Guardian shows that the National Security Agency (NSA) has collected the call records of every Verizon customer in America—millions upon millions of call records. This includes every call made, the location of the phone, the time of the call, the duration of the call, and other "identifying information"—for every single call made by a Verizon customer, regardless of whether they've ever been suspected of a crime.

And that's not all. Reports have now been published by the Washington Post and the Guardian based on information provided by a career intelligence officer showing how the NSA and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies. The government is extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person's movements and contacts over time.

From the article DWhite posted, I love this part:

I also love the way google play it:

Google to DOJ: Let us prove to users that NSA isn't snooping on them

Google is deep involved, there are tons of articles about their connections.

"Don't be evil"


Google-CIA-NSA Connections


Quote:
Consumer Watchdog’s latest complaints about the relationship of Google and the Obama administration are outlined in a 32-page report.

The paper questions a decision by NASA allowing Google executives to use its Moffett Federal Airfield near Google headquarters. Although H211, a company controlled by Google top executives, pays NASA rent, they enjoy access to the airfield that other companies or groups don’t have, Simpson said.

The paper also questions Google contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense and other agencies, suggesting that, in some cases, Google contracts were fast-tracked. The paper also questions Google’s relationship with the U.S. National Security Agency and calls for the company to be more open about what consumer information it shares with the spy agency.

When asked if other companies, including broadband providers, should disclose what customer information they share with the NSA, Simpson said they should, too.

“I understand the NSA is a super-secret spook organization,” he said. “But given Google’s very special situation where it possesses so much personal data about people, I think that there ought to be a little more openness about what precisely goes on between the two.”


Google charges the U.S. Government $25 per person for domestic surveillance

You have to read the entire article, it is much more than what they said.

Google Admits Handing over European User Data to US Intelligence Agencies

Quote:
Google has admitted complying with requests from US intelligence agencies for data stored in its European data centers, most likely in violation of European Union data protection laws.
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Googl...s-215740.shtml

Google the trojan horse that never wanted to comply with the European laws.

After reading this article, I guess it is time for Congress to modify the Patriot Act, it is very detrimental that allies are under surveillance with their google annexes all over Europe.
