Zuckerberg Phones Obama for Answers About NSA Spying

• http://www.wired.com, By Robert McMillan
Apparently, that’s what Zuck did last night, shortly after the website First Look Media reported that the NSA had been masquerading as a Facebook server in order to infect target computers. “I’ve called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our future,” Zuckerberg wrote in a note he posted to Facebook today.
When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we’re protecting you against criminals, not our own government.
–Mark Zuckerberg
A White House spokeswoman confirmed that Zuckerberg and Obama spoke last night, discussing “recent reports in the press about alleged activities by the U.S. intelligence community,” but she declined to tell us what exactly was said. It seems, however, that Facebook’s CEO and founder did not get what he wanted. “Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform,” Zuckerberg wrote.
