“The Government Blew It” On The NSA Scandal Says Zuckerberg

While speaking at TechCrunch Disrupt, Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook CEO spoke out about the recent and on going NSA scandal, voicing his concerns that the public deserve to know more about the sort of programs the government are running, asking for more transparency.

“I think the government blew it” he said, “We take our role very seriously, It’s our job to protect everyone who uses Facebook. It’s our government’s job to protect all of us, our freedom and the economy. They did a bad job at balancing this.”

It isn’t the first time he has spoken out either and lets be honest, nearly all of us has something to voice on the subject of the NSA in recent months, “Oh that’s really gonna help companies that are trying to serve people around the world,” Zuckerberg cracked. “I think that was really bad.”

His frustration comes from not being able to publicly disclose how many HSA requests it grands and denies, either way you can bet its a pretty huge number given the vast user base of Facebook and the amount of information people share on it.

Do you agree with Zuckerberg on this one? Let us know in the comments section below.
