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."
In a cryptic note posted Thursday to the Lavabit website, owner Ladar Levison said the company is folding rather than becoming, in his words, "complicit in crimes against the American people."
Ladar Levison, owner of the Lavabit LLC email service, said in a blog posting that he had been "forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people, or walk away from nearly 10 years of hard work by shutting down."
