Very interesting indeed! I'm surprised the government is letting google disclose this information. Normally, they like to keep us in the dark.

This is good and bad news. When a government ask for help to shut down a botnet lets say that is good news. When a government ask for help tracking a terrorist that is also good news IMHO.
I'm amazed like RustyHavoc that this information is public now. Now the bad news, this power in the hands of the wrong government agency's hands is scary. Note! That list is probably not complete. The N.S.A has a web site that is a good read. Figure this out, for years No Such Agency (NSA) was very secret or didn't exist to the public and now they have a web site. I got to figure that it isn't a tell all site.
