    Google announced today that they will now be teaming up with the NSA (National Security Agency) on Cyber Security. This announcement doesn't seem to be getting much attention in the MSM. I'm not really sure why. In my opinion this is a pretty disturbing development. I would be very interested in hearing what others think. Thanks.

    I'm still pretty surprised that so few care about this. Hmm?

    Just imagine the uproar on the left if this development had occurred under Bush.

    Yea this development seems pretty disturbing to me. The MSM has been strangely silent on it though. I don't get it.

    I think you might, as usual, be reading too much into it.

    All the reports I've seen say that Google has asked the NSA for help combating cyber-attacks, including those that possibly originated from the Chinese Government.

    I'm pretty sure that's exactly what the NSAs job is.
