    First off, I don't work for Google or benefit financially from Google. Of course this means I only know what I read about the case.

    Google and the other firms that have commented have refuted the key claim, the key scoop in the article in the Guardian: There is no back door or unlimited government access.

    Of course, this doesn't mean that Google doesn't give the NSA exactly what they want when backed up by a (FISA) court order. Do they have any choice other than complying with the letter of US law?

    And now Google is asking the AG to give them a waiver that will allow Google to remove the veil of secrecy on the court orders they have complied with.

    Frankly, I don't know what more you could want from them!
