Google CEO denies company’s involvement in PRISMAssociated Press
SAN FRANCISCO— Google CEO Larry Page is denying reports linking the Internet search company to a secret government program that has provided the National Security Agency access to email and other personal information transmitted on various online services.
In a post on Google’s blog, Page says the company hasn’t joined any government program allowing the NSA to mine its computers for personal data about users of its search engine, Gmail service or YouTube video service.
Page’s assertion contradicts reports published late Thursday by The Washington Post and The Guardian tying Google Inc. and six other technology companies to a clandestine snooping program code named PRISM.
In his post co-written with Google’s top lawyer, Page wrote that any suggestion that Google is giving user information on a broad scale is “completely false.”
