(Note strong language in paragraphs 6 and 8) By Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A pair of Google Inc employees involved with the internet companys security systems have publicly lashed out at the National Security Agency, with one of the employees accusing the organization of subverting the law by intercepting communications on cables linking Googles various data centers. Nobody at the U.S. National Security Agency or the British intelligence agency will ever stand before a judge and answer for this industrial-scale subversion of the judicial process, wrote Mike Hearn, an engineer at Google, on his personal Google+ page on Tuesday. The comments follow a report in the Washington Post last week that the NSA had gained access to an overseas cable or switch that relayed Google and Yahoo Inc traffic through an unnamed telecommunications provider.
