WASHINGTON, DC: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he’s called President Barack Obama to express his frustration over what he says is long-lasting damage caused by the U.S. government’s surveillance programmes.

Posting on his Facebook page, Mr. Zuckerberg wrote on Thursday that he’s “been so confused and frustrated by the repeated reports of the behavior of the U.S. government.” He added that when Facebook’s “engineers work tirelessly to improve security; we imagine we’re protecting you against criminals, not our own government.”

The post comes a day after the news site Intercept reported that the National Security Agency has impersonated a Facebook server to infect surveillance targets’ computers and get files from a hard drive. The NSA said the report is “inaccurate.”

White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden confirmed that the President spoke with Mr. Zuckerberg.
