Google’s chairman Eric Schmidt ripped into the NSA after reports surfaced that the NSA was spying on Google’s data center.
“It’s really outrageous that the National Security Agency was looking between the Google data centers, if that’s true. The steps that the organization was willing to do without good judgment to pursue its mission and potentially violate people’s privacy, it’s not OK,” Mr. Schmidt told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. “The Snowden revelations have assisted us in understanding that it’s perfectly possible that there are more revelations to come.”
The internet search engine has registered a complaint with both the NSA and President Obama along with members of congress.
Google had cooperated in the past and didn’t have similar objections to privacy invasions when they were turning over information on users to the NSA.
