If you were in a leadership role in a country other that the United States, would you trust your country's secrets, or any information for that matter to the hands of Microsoft, Amazon, Google, or any other American company?

Bit of a broad rangign set of data "secrets" and "other info". Name, emial address, website - why not?

Secrets - wouldn't want them on the internet at all!

I guess I am not being specific enough, I'll point to the *latest* news regarding what got me thinking about this:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/202 ... 5-mi6-gchq
Priti Patel is under pressure to disclose whether the UK’s most sensitive national security secrets could be at risk after the disclosure that its spy agencies signed a cloud contract with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Labour is demanding that the home secretary explain why GCHQ, MI5 and MI6 will use a high-security system provided by the US-based firm, and whether any risk assessment was undertaken before the deal was signed.
I'm glad to see there's someone in the Kingdom asking whether or not this is wise. When I first posted, I had read that the contract had just been signed.
