“Facebook in particular is the most appalling spy machine ever invented. Here we have the world’s most comprehensive data base about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations, their communications with each other, their relatives, all sitting within United States, all accessible to US intelligence. Facebook, Google, Yahoo, all these major US organisations have built-in interfaces for US intelligence. It’s not a matter of serving a subpoena. They have an interface that they have developed for US intelligence to use. Now, is it the case that Facebook is actually run by US intelligence? No it’s not like that. It is simply that the US intelligence is able to bring to bear legal and political pressure to them. And it is costly to them to hand out records one by one, so they have automated the process. Everyone should understand that today, when they add their friends, they are doing free work for United States intelligence agencies for building a data base for them” – Julian Assange.
