|Google's David Drummond Says Obama's Speech On NSA Curbs Falls Short|
| 3:10 pm on Jan 27, 2014 (gmt 0)|
|Moves by US President Barack Obama to rein in spies at the National Security Agency do not go far enough, a senior figure at Google has told the BBC. |
David Drummond, the tech giant's chief legal officer, said the US needed to change its approach to intelligence to restore trust in the internet.
His comments are some of the first by a senior tech figure since a speech by the US president earlier this month.[url]Google's David Drummond Says Obama's Speech On NSA Curbs Falls Short[/url]
|"Let me be clear about it, in general they fall short of where any of the speech and the proposal and the speech fell short of where we'd like to see this go," Mr Drummond said. |
|"People really need to trust the internet and to trust internet companies and that really underpins a lot of the innovation," Mr Drummond said. |
"We've been concerned about the long-term user trust in the internet and what that means for acceptance for new innovations," he added.

This is like the pot calling the kettle black. Nobody, in public at least, is acquiring as much technology that has the capacity to track people as Google is.
