Google to DOJ: Let us prove to users that NSA isn't snooping on them

There is a "serious misperception" about the National Security Agency's PRISM program, Google chief legal officer David Drummond said in an exclusive interview with Fox News. On Tuesday the company pushed back against the layers of secrecy surrounding the agency's alleged blanket snooping on American citizens. “We were as shocked about those revelations as anyone,” Drummond told Fox News, in an interview with Fox News' Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge. On Tuesday the Internet giant wrote on its official blog that it had sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and the FBI Director Robert Mueller, asking the agencies to allow Google to release more information about the national security orders it had received. http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/06/12/google-chief-officer-pushes-back-on-nsa-spy-program/
