Funny...

...but actually not really all that funny, is it?



Of course, Google is the only search engine actively fighting handing over search records to the Justice Department. Mind you, these are everyone's searches that the government wants, not just those searches associated with people already suspected of crimes.

I think it's important to understand that Google's motivation in disagreeing with the DOJ is not entirely based on its love of the Constitution. It also is protecting its commercial enterprise while easily acquiring a positive image amongst people like you and me. If there wasn't money to be made, I doubt that Google would be fighting the good fight. Mammamoo

Between wiretapping and this, I wonder if intelligence agencies really have the capacity or willingness to find meaningful information through all this data.

I don't think self-interest and principle need to diverge for the latter to be legitimate.
