NSA PRISM Scandal for Tech Giants Server Access

NSA PRISM Scandal for Tech Giants Server Access

Most of the Silicon Valley head honchos denied any knowledge of allowing the NSA access to classified information. However, a spy program was leaked to the newsmen who flaunted it before the entire world. The whole purpose of the scheme was to eavesdrop on the secret conversations of ordinary citizens in the US. According to the Washington Post, the communication service providers were the culprits in this regard. It was basically a Power Point document that listed several tech companies that had cooperated in the nefarious plan. But when questioned most of the self-same company executives refused to acknowledge their guilt. In fact, they appeared shocked and flabbergasted about the scandal.

Basically, the document was a part of PRISM, a venture started by George W. Bush. The neoconservative agenda of hunting out potential terrorists had been started by Bush Junior. And though it should have died a natural death with the end of his eight year term in office, such an act didn’t happen. What did take place was a rebirth of the post 9/11 paranoia (like the proverbial phoenix rising out of its ashes). Among some of the culprits on the list were: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple.

All the heads of the giant tech companies professed ignorance regarding the matter. People at Apple spoke of how they didn’t even know what this thing called PRISM was in the first place. The executives at Facebook said that they did no such act and that they always carefully scrutinized any request for private information before complying with it. The Google administration stated blankly that Google cared deeply for its users’ confidentiality.

Microsoft responded by saying that it only divulged data when forced by the law to do so. And finally Yahoo representatives said that their company takes its users’ privacy quite seriously. But the facts speak for themselves. It seems that both the NSA and the FBI have access to secret documents thanks in no small part to the PRISM program. Even call records were being investigated thereby invoking the public ire. Many people have expressed grave concerns about this blatant disregard of human rights. The whole issue is expected to explode into a full-fledged scandal that could rock the establishment.
