Nobody wants to acknowledge that Google has grown big and bad. But it has. Schmidt’s tenure as CEO saw Google integrate with the shadiest of U.S. power structures as it expanded into a geographically invasive megacorporation. But Google has always been comfortable with this proximity. Long before company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin hired Schmidt in 2001, their initial research upon which Google was based had been partly funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). And even as [CEO Eric] Schmidt’s Google developed an image as the overly friendly giant of global tech, it was building a close relationship with the intelligence community. (link below)
The rumors have been circulating for years: “Google is a tool of the CIA/NSA.” Of course, without hard proof, like someone with official authority confirming the authenticity of the rumors, most people in this fairtale country will refuse to believe or accept the possibility that the rumors are fact.
But there’s there’s a lot “smoke,” there’s always a very dangerous fire. The truth about Google is straight out of a conflagration of “Animal Farm,” “1984” and “A Brave New World:”
Caught red-handed last year making petabytes of personal data available to the U.S. intelligence community through the PRISM program, Google nevertheless continues to coast on the goodwill generated by its “don’t be evil” doublespeak…In 2008, Google helped launch an NGA [National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency] spy satellite, the GeoEye-1, into space. Google shares the photographs from the satellite with the U.S. military and intelligence communities. In 2010, NGA awarded Google a $27 million contract for “geospatial visualization services.”
“National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.” I’ll bet almost everyone reading this has never heard of that organization. I had not until now. And friends and colleagues wonder why I refuse to activate the GPS function on my cellphone.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts posted this article from Newseek – LINK – in which Wikileaks’ Julian Assange describes his encounters with Google’s Eric Schmidt and the lesser known but more dangerous Jared Cohen, a staunch Nazi-esque neocon and former White House insider with access to the deepest levels of U.S. defense and intelligence centers. Cohen seemingly has married Google’s profound technology and data scalping capabilities with the darkest and more dangerous areas of our Government.
