Google is working with the enemy: Top US general says the tech giant is ‘indirectly’ helping the Chinese military

The United States’ top general has claimed that Google’s work in China is ‘indirectly benefiting the Chinese military’.

Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, hit out at the search engine giant as he spoke during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Thursday.

‘We watch with great concern when industry partners work in China knowing that there is that indirect benefit,’ he said.

‘Frankly, “indirect” may be not a full characterization of the way it really is, it is more of a direct benefit to the Chinese military.’
