Google’s Eric Schmidt denies knowledge of NSA data tapping of firm

Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, has insisted he had no knowledge of the US National Security Agency’s tapping of the company’s data, despite having a sufficiently high security clearance to have been told.He said that he and other members of the search company were outraged by the tapping carried out by the NSA and the UK’s GCHQ – first revealed in the Guardian in June – and that they had “complained at great length” to the US government over the intrusion. Google had since begun encrypting internal traffic to prevent further spying, he said.
