‘U.S. Government’s threat to internet’, says Mark Zuckerberg

The founder and CEO of Facebook , Mark Zuckerberg , said on Thursday (13) that called for President Barack Obama to say that the U.S. government is destroying confidence in the internet with their spy programs.

“I called for President Obama to express my frustration with the damage that the government is creating for our future,” said Zuckerberg in a text on his official site (click here to sign in English) in the social network, showing his irritation with Washington.

“Unfortunately, it seems it will be long until a complete renovation is done,” he lamented.

“The U.S. government should be a defender of the internet, not a threat. Should be transparent about what you are doing, or people will think the worst,” he added.

The review was published a day after the revelation that the National Security Agency ( NSA , its acronym in English) mimicked the Facebook servers to infect computers with malware that allowed the collection of data from computers on a massive scale.
