Google Ties to NASA, NSA, DHS, et al & Obama (the side show)...

Google ties to Obama just means Google ties to the White House -- no matter WHO sits in the Oval Office -- Democrat or Republican.  It's about Technology Transfers & the Exchange of private information, private conversations & even the Zeroing In on targeted locations -- even individual residences -- and for what reasons.  Just another Done Deal -- no probing questions asked or dots connected by those 'consumer watchdogs' that will ever really amount to anything ...

But NSA also has legal power to force Google to hand over the private information of its users. How Google executives handle this potentially conflicted relationship is largely unknown: neither Google nor the NSA are talking...

For a company so committed to making all our information open for the all world to see, Google has been anything but transparent about its corporate dealings. Eric Schmidt may have stepped down from the CEO’s seat last week, but he needs to be shown the witness chair in Congress. Americans deserve answers and nothing other than Congressional hearings will produce them ...
