Wired magazine reports that on Friday, May11, the National Security Agency’s decision not to realease to the public documents confirming or denying any relationship it may or may not have with Google concerning cypersecurity and encryption was upheld by a federal appeals court. The Wired article says that former NSA chief Mike McConnell told the Washington Post that the collaboration between the NSA and private companies like Google was “inevitable.”
David Kravets who wrote the article, concludes, with tongue firmly in cheek, “If we removed all the legalese, the appellate court upheld the government’s often-said contention that, “if we told you, we’d have to kill you.”
