Top General Wants Google to Work with US Military Instead of China

Marine General Joseph Dunford questioned why technology giants like Google to not want to work with the Pentagon even as they seek out business with China, where companies have less freedom than in the United States.


The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said that it was inexplicable why Google would make compromises to advance its business interests in China where freedoms are restrained, and where intellectual properties are taken from companies.


Google dropped out this year from a $10 billion cloud computing contract with the U.S. Defense Department, in part because the company’s new ethical guidelines do not align with the project.
