Uhm, yes, we all suspected it but now it seems demonstrated. The Gestapo-like National Security Agency (NSA) has been running for years a snooping program known as Prism that effectively allows them to control all Internet communications without any kind of judicial authorization or anything.
The first company to join the program was... guess who? Microsoft, naturally. Then followed Yahoo!, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, YouTube, Skype, AOL and Apple. These companies give full access to the cops to snoop in your communications without any limitation nor guarantee.
