Latest Snowden leak: 'NSA hacked into Google & Yahoo data streams' [Sam Sacks @ RTAmerica]

The National Security Agency has infiltrated the links between Yahoo and Google data centers worldwide, according to the latest leaks by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Tapping into these links allows them to secretly siphon off information from those companies' data streams. The links between data centers are not encrypted, though Google announced in September that they will begin encrypting their links. Gen. Keith Alexander, head of the NSA, says that, to his knowledge, this program does not exist. RT's Sam Sacks has more information on how the latest revelations are different from the previously disclosed Prism surveillance program.
