Google “In Bed” With The CIA?

Threadwatch spots a disgrunt article named Former Intelligence Agent Says Google In Bed With CIA. Robert David Steele, a former CIA agent, “confirmed from his contacts within the CIA and Google that Google was working in tandem with “the agency.” Steele said, “I think that Google has made a very important strategic mistake in dealing with the secret elements of the U.S. government – that is a huge mistake and I’m hoping they’ll work their way out of it and basically cut that relationship off.” Scary, very scary.

Postscript: Statement from Google on this, “The statements related to Google are completely untrue.”
