I'm just curious... they're getting away with releasing all of these kinds of spying technologies to the public which I think must mean that they work for a government agency of some sorts or at least is contracted with them. Perhaps they work for the CIA? Maybe all of google employees are really undercover CIA agents?

Long answer Yes!

Short answer is also yes!

The Google is a CIA powerhouse, and will kill you if you disobey!

*Bows to almighty Google God*

This is conspiracy speculation at its finest.

If this was the case, then why would The Pentagon ban Google from it's US bases as per this article in the times:

I'm sure the usual crowd will be here shortly to confirm your speculation and paranoia...and to tell me I'm an undercover agent or something like that. That's how it usually works.

That doesn't mean that google doesn't work for the CIA. That just means the Pentagon doesn't want US bases using google. Google could very well hand over our search histories to the CIA.

People in the know understand that the Pentagon and the CIA are separate, distinct, and often warring entities. For decades, the the Joint Chiefs have tried, unsuccessfully, to bring the intelligence apparatus of the executive branch under their control. In fact, such a desire, on the part of JFK, was one of the reasons he was so hated by the power centers in DC.

When you understand that the Pentagon has a huge interest in ensuring that the CIA can't spy on their activities, then the Times Online article begins to make a lot more sense.

The generals at the top know that allowing Google queries means allowing CIA oversight of said queries, which means allowing fine-grained Presidential oversight of their soldiers' and commanders' computer activities.

The Executive branch has proven time and time again that they would use any and all measures, legal and otherwise, to exert political influence over the Pentagon. The generals have simple decided that banning Google reduces their exposure to nefarious press leaks designed to force politically unpopular Generals to resign.
