I just can't believe this.
How many illegal prisoners does the US have, and by dodgy methods at that. How many people were traced on Teh Intarwebs? And where did that data come from? And wasn't it the beloved REG that posted an article about the CIA darkrooms at ATT facilities?
Seriously, it's okay for the US to steal/demand data, but not okay for other nations to do it. Super. Yahoo! is a global business. You have to play by the rules of the locale you are in.
The moral pygmy thing is just icing on the cake... glass houses, man. Glass houses.
