U.S. counterterror agency lacks "Google-like" search

• Reuters
A senior counterterrorism official said on Wednesday his agency lacks "Google-like" search capability that could have identified the suspect in the attempted Christmas Day airline bombing.
The National Counterterrorism Center, the agency charged with reviewing disparate data to protect against attacks, does not have a computer search engine that could have checked for various spellings of the alleged bomber's name and his birthplace in Nigeria, the center's chief told a Senate hearing on security reform.

On the other hand, this looks like a plea (though probably planted intentionally) for Google to hop deeper in bed with Uncle Sam.
