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?

Nobody should be surprised by any of this, and it shouldn't take to crystal ball to have predicted it years ago. Trust is nothing more than an illusion to help people sleep better at night. In truth, people can't even be trusted to act in their own best interests so why anyone would think a government or for-profit company would is beyond me. These entities have a single primary goal - to control the behavior of others. They're great at it and no tool is left unused.
