 TRUTH IS TREASON IN THE EMPIRE OF LIES…

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer revealed the extent of harassment that the NSA has engaged in to bully tech companies into revealing American citizen’s private information. Mayer is pushing for the right to publish how many requests they get for personal information from the spy agency. For now, the company is forbidden by law to disclose how much data they provide to the government.

From the Guardian

During an interview at the Techcrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, Mayer was asked why tech companies had not simply decided to tell the public more about what the US surveillance industry was up to. “Releasing classified information is treason and you are incarcerated,” she said.

Mayer said she was “proud to be part of an organisation that from the beginning, in 2007, has been sceptical of – and has been scrutinizing – those requests [from the NSA].”

Yahoo has previously unsuccessfully sued the foreign intelligence surveillance (Fisa) court, which provides the legal framework for NSA surveillance. In 2007 it asked to be allowed to publish details of requests it receives from the spy agency. “When you lose and you don’t comply, it’s treason,” said Mayer. “We think it make more sense to work within the system,” she said.
