Yahoo! is apologising to the Senate committee for misleading it about what the internet firm knew about its cooperation with China's pursuit of dissidents. Michael Callahan, a Yahoo! VP, told the committee the firm had no idea why the Chinese government was investigating journalist Shi Tao. But according to today's Wall Street …
And that's the truth!
Anyone who suggests that he knew the score all along and intentionally kept it secret is a filthy liar! :P
Yet the American government is giving immunity to the companies that assisted it with warrantless wiretapping.
It's somehow okay for the CIA to torture people but not China?
So...it would have been OK to hand the victim over to be tortured and imprisoned for a decade or so as long as he'd said they were doing that...?

It's OK as long as a US company makes a profit from it. It's also OK to help corrupt Nigerian government officials skim millions off of a deal to replace a nicely-working Linux installation (x 17,000) with a crappy, crawling Windows installation (also x 17,000), as long as a US company makes a profit. And it's OK destroy the Alaskan wilderness environment, as long as a US company makes a profit.
I'm just happy there is no commercial US firm making "unbranded" ICBMs with nuclear warheads. It's scary enough having them under the control of Kaiser Bush, without giving, er, selling them to North Korea, Iran, Burma, Indonesia... And Paris Hilton.
