GOOGLE is getting WH and State Dept. support & air cover. In reality,
they are doing things the CIA cannot do. But, I agree with you. He's
going to get himself kidnapped or killed. Might be the best thing to
happen to expose GOOGLE's covert role in foaming up-risings, to be
blunt. The US Govt can then disavow knowledge and GOOGLE is left
holding the shit bag.
