They , along with all the other tech companies should do it anyway. Then they should stop allowing it. This is one of the most shameful things the government has ever done.
What would happen if they released the information? CEO arrested?
Just one small part of a long process...
The government's refusal to let the companies speak more freely about the data requests simply means that Microsoft and Google will now move forward with joint litigation against the government regarding the matter.
The NSA has to much power, if legal action is taken. There is a good chance the CEO's, board members, and high ranking managers will start to " have accidents ".
Do I think the NSA would kill citizens to protect its power over the people?
Yes. Without a doubt.
Maybe the data in question could "accidentally" leak out because it was "accidentally" placed on a public server. Or because an executive accidentally left a laptop in a journalist's office, all accidental-like.
Or maybe a "hacker" (nudge nudge, wink wink) could somehow defeat the system protections and gain access to this sensitive data, such as if the company started following the NSA's published guidelines actual practices on managing data security.
Both Microsoft and Google have a lot of data. They can't possibly stay on top of all of it. Accidents happen.
That would be my guess. Holder likes to do that sort of thing.
Oh yes, they would go after public figures and further damage themselves.
That makes perfect sense.
It actually does because the government is living in it's own little bubble.
Is that why the bill to partially defund the NSA almost passed the house? They would be ensuring their own defunding if they did something like that.
Close only counts in horseshoes and atom bombs.
And if they did this, it would't be almost. It would pass if they did something like assassinating public figures.
