Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

"Plausible Deniability" was a term thrown around a lot during the 80s and 90s in the US with regard to certain alphabet organizations operating on US soil in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act and other legislation designed to prevent the use of our own military against our citizens. Basically, if the organization's director has no knowledge of the operations being performed, he can't be held accountable for the inevitable backlash.

Now it sounds like the corporations are the ones practicing plausible deniability.
