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?

Who's lying every one

So the the government doesn't get the data directly from the internet companies but the data goes through a data broker who takes the anonymous Google data and matches it to users (just one example of many). The truth and the lie exist in a state like quantum indeterminacy. To paraphrase from a popular recent movie there are some more responsible than others and they will be held accountable. Of course in the new America we will probably see whoever leaked this data go to jail for a very long time while those that have committed crimes against our shrinking freedoms will be rewarded with wealth and great career prospects.
