Google asks DOJ and FBI for permission to disclose details of NSA spyingSubmitted by independent_thought on Wed, 06/12/2013 - 04:51
Major Internet companies are urging the Obama administration to give them permission to disclose more details about national security requests for their users’ data.
Google sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller on Monday, arguing that the information would prove that the company is not turning over massive batches of its users’ sensitive personal data to the government.
“Google’s numbers would clearly show that our compliance with these requests falls far short of the claims being made. Google has nothing to hide,” Google Chief Legal Officer David Drummond wrote in the letter.
