What do Google, AOL, Skype, Facebook, Apple, Hotmail and Yahoo all have in common? They have all been caught turning over private user data to the government’s spy agency, the NSA. All these companies routinely turn over the emails, voice calls, text chats, photos, files and even logins and passwords of their users, including Americans.

“There is a massive apparatus within the United States government that with complete secrecy has been building this enormous structure that has only one goal,” journalist Glenn Greenwald recently told Piers Morgan (who knows all about spying and hacking people’s private data). “And that is to destroy privacy and anonymity not just in the United States but around the world.”

Tech companies rush to issue (false) denials

Immediately after these revelations surfaced over the past few days, all these companies began denying any involvement with the NSA. “Google CEO Larry Page and Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg are denying reports that depict two of the Internet’s most influential companies as willing participants in a secret government program that gives the National Security Agency unfettered access to email and other personal information transmitted on various online services,” reports the San Francisco branch of CBS News.

But what nobody is yet revealing is that all these companies are required by law to LIE to their own customers about secret government surveillance.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, you see, makes it a federal crime for any company participating in the surveillance to publicly acknowledge the existence of that surveillance. Thus, executives at Facebook, Google, Skype and others would all face arrest and federal prosecution as “terrorists” if they admitted the truth to their own users.

That’s just how far down the rabbit hole this government surveillance program goes: Not only does the government spy on you and everything you do — “they quite literally can watch your ideas as you type” — the government can also force all the tech companies cooperating with the spying to publicly deny the existence of the program.

The New York Times goes on to report:

In at least two cases, at Google and Facebook, one of the plans discussed was to build separate, secure portals, like a digital version of the secure physical rooms that have long existed for classified information, in some instances on company servers. Through these online rooms, the government would request data, companies would deposit it and the government would retrieve it, people briefed on the discussions said.

This is how companies like Google and Facebook can claim, with a straight face, that the NSA doesn’t have “backdoor access to our servers.” They don’t need it! What actually happens is that Google, Facebook, Yahoo and others simply deposit all user data at another location — a “gateway” where the NSA copies it off.

Now you understand how to correctly parse this fake denial by Google’s chief executive Larry Page, who says, “The U.S. government does not have direct access or a ‘back door’ to the information stored in our data centers.”

It doesn’t need “direct access.” It has INDIRECT access that was set up by Google!

Here are the diagrams from the top secret PRISM program that tells the truth:

These diagrams show how the bulk of the world’s electronic communications move through companies based in the United States.

Providers and data

The PRISM program collects a wide range of data from the nine companies, although the details vary by provider:

Participating providers

This one shows when each company joined the program, with Microsoft being the first, on Sept. 11, 2007, and Apple the most recent, in October 2012:

Are you concerned that your government is not only invading your privacy, but they are also violating the U.S. Constitution, which is illegal, to do so?  The U.S. Government does not trust you, because they fear that you will find out just how corrupt they have become! – John Loeffler, Fountain City, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
