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?

If Google (and the other companies involved) really want to tell the truth without getting in trouble with gag orders, they can say something like "We are unable to confirm any allegations of collusion with the government regarding access to our data stores". That sends the message that yes, we are compromised, and no, we can't tell you about it.

But they won't do that because they would bleed customers like a severed artery.

Such a perfect analogy. Well said.
