Searching For Evil-Do-ers

If you’re using Google, someone might think you are evil. This article suggests that Google:

….has quietly provided assistance to several U.S. intelligence agencies, such as the Central Intelligence Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency, as the U.S. prosecutes its war on terrorism. In addition, Google may be providing assistance to the National Security Agency.

I have no idea if that is true or not, but it does sound plausable. Why wouldn’t those agencies tap into Googles knowledge store? Perhaps, at this very moment, several young gentlemen with crazed glints in their eyes, are searching Google maps, furiously g-mailing each other, looking up do-it-yourself sites of dubious distinction, all while making use of the damned technology of the infidel.

They’re probably also finding a lot of Wikipedia in the results.

The trouble is, they could just as equally be regular people looking up information, who just happen to conduct a few search queries that just happen to appear on the “suspicious” list.

How thin is the line?
