    Do you have any ideas about how Google data search are used by the administration?

    If we did, you would. We don't, you don't.

    So essentially, I think they can request essential data, but Google protects it to the last stand.

    The short answer is no.

    I don't think this is very accurate, actually.
    As in 2006 the Bush administration required search data when they were working on child protection laws, but at that time they needed mostly data on child pornograpgy searches.

    Sorry that's what I meant. Data can be requested, and Google will decide if it lets it out... what I mean is that the government dont get free access to whatever they need when they like... otherwise I expect many spammers would be getting jobs in the administration ;) lol

    You're very trusting :cool:

    Is this not the same government that can now tap any phone without a warrant? I think it is very safe to say they will have access to all systems.

    I think any specific keywords you enter into a search engine will be like a little beacon lighting up your IP address. Words like, al qaeda, how to make a bomb, preteen sex etc.


    This is the same government that set up and still denies to this day project echelon. Part of which is sited on UK soil. It was set up to evesdrop on electronic data eminating from behind the iron curtain. As soon as the cold war was over, the european parliament is convinced they turned it to tune in on european businesses. Commonly known as corporate espionage

    Remember, this is the only country in the western world to do away with human rights. (Guantanamo bay)


    The sooner there is a change of leadership over there, the sooner we might edge towards a slighly safer world.


    Oh, and we are no better over here.
    "We have not and never will cooperate in flights of rendition. To do so would be an illegal act"

    And later.....

    "We can confirm the USA has at times, asked for our assistance and we have oblidged"




    OK. That's me rant over with.
