The Obama administration is running profitable businesses aground and their employees onto the unemployment line, but the owner of Lavabit, a small email-service provider in Texas, is threatened with criminal prosecution for closing its doors.
In amassing data about every American's communications, U.S. intelligence agencies are not only making many uneasy about their privacy, but also are endangering the nation's leadership in innovation and security in communications technology.
The encrypted email service reportedly used by National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden closed abruptly Thursday, with its founder saying that maintaining operations at the company would involve "crimes against the American people."
A Texas-based secure email service reportedly used by National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden says it is shutting down and can't legally explain why.
"I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States," Mr. Levison warned.
Mr. Levison says he has been threatened with arrest a half-dozen times already for shutting down the company.
