Google and NSA team up: Do you feel safer online?

The world's largest Internet search company and the world's most powerful electronic surveillance organization are teaming up in the name of cybersecurity.

Under an agreement that is still being finalized, the National Security Agency would help Google analyze a major corporate espionage attack that the firm said originated in China and targeted its computer networks, according to cybersecurity experts familiar with the matter. The objective is to better defend Google -- and its users -- from future attack.

No doubt, with NSA involvement, we'll hear the complaints from the ACLU, the far left wing, anti-intelligence community who don;t give a rat's a** about America's cybersecurity, but will scream about privacy rights being abused,etc. just like they did with the Patriot Act provisions.

Of course the 'Googlers' will be properly 'vetted' and 'cleared' for sensitive data!! We don't need any 'Techno-Leakers'!
Don't know why it's even being discussed [OOPs, forgot about the 'Anonymous', 'Unauthorized Senior Officials' and the 'host' of Leakers to the Media and Fourth Estate"!
Guess who benefits the most from all this 'chatter'?

as a fringe libertarian, this obviously disappoints. but it is not a surprise.

"do no evil" became a sick joke the day Google sold out Chinese dissidents.
