Disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden about the agency’s vast capability for spying on Americans’ electronic communications prompted a number of tech executives whose firms cooperated with the government to insist they had done so only when compelled by a court of law.
But Al Jazeera has obtained two sets of email communications dating from a year before Snowden became a household name that suggest not all cooperation was under pressure.
I’m so surprised.
Maybe I’m missing something, but what’s wrong with Google execs attending a meeting on security of mobile devices? The article seems to implicitly accuse them of agreeing to participate in the NSA surveillance program, but the actual emails have none of that.
