Google Transparency

Here is a new feature from Google. It tells how many government requests it gets from around the world to remove content from services, or provide information about users of  services and products, or shut down sites. It shows by country for six month increments. Sensitive government requests are not shown, due to national security concerns. Not surprisingly, the US seems to top the list for numbers of requests. LINK   Personally, I am tired of the 'transparency' word. What ever happened to plain old 'truth' and 'honesty'.
