Could Google be a spook?
Is Google's quest to manage the world's information leading straight to the CIA?

Former CIA clandestine case officer Robert David Steele made some very hot comments on his appearance on the Alex Jones radio show. Steele cites his contacts within the agency with the information that Google and the CIA are involved with one another.

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."

In reference to Google's fight against the U.S. Department of Justice for the privacy of its users, Steele claims that it was an elaborate charade intended for the public eye.

"Google was a little hypocritical when they were refusing to honor a Department of Justice request for information because they were heavily in bed with the Central Intelligence Agency, the office of research and development," concluded Steele.

From reports, Steele did not bring evidence to light in order to back up his claims, and neither Google nor the CIA are yet commenting on the matter.

Who cares? I do, and here's why:

People constantly go on about the glory of the free market and our wonderful capitalist economy while ignoring the blatant evidence to the contrary -- we have government institutions interacting at deep levels with our most lauded 'free market' corporate interests, we have DoD and In-Q-Tel money (i.e. tax revenue, people ... public funds) pouring into private outfits in the guise of 'investment' ... it's ridiculous to pretend anymore that this is the kind of thing Adam Smith wrote about, folks.

This phenomenon is getting to absurd levels. It is a serious issue for everyone to consider that we are losing, here and now, the delineation between these companies and government spies and institutional powers that be. When consumer choice shrinks and the remaining corporations are influenced by the officialdom and spies, how does this keep us free exactly?
