I've learned in Snowdens "Permanent Record" that CIA and other intelligence agencies are hosted by Amazon AWS and Snowden makes a point that decision by US government is not a very good one. I think its one of the reasons why Amazon got in position to pay 0$ in taxes, they litteraly own US inteligence IT infrastructure and they have power to get away with it.

@nikolal possible. But couldn't be the whole story. Amazon employs really smart people to find legal loopholes.

It isn't whole story of course, I was just pointing how powerful they are in that aspect.

@nikolal I expect this also means the gov will always be reluctant to take action against . They're in bed with them essentially (consider 's relationship with police etc.)
