Homeland Security Explains Why Google Wasn’t Seized, Sort Of

The big news this week was without a doubt the domain seizure of 6 sport streaming sites, a few days before the Super Bowl.

This third round of seizures surprised many people, starting with the sites owners, through the public all the way to a US Senator.

In an interview with Public Radio, Homeland Security Investigation Special Agent James Hayes was asked to explain why the authorities didn’t take Google down. This wasn’t the question Hayes expected, and out of nowhere he suddenly cut out.

Luckily Hayes came back, but not with the right answers.

Some great analysis of the interview, and why Homeland Security failed again to explain the seizures, is available at Techdirt.
