DuckDuckGo isn't meant to protect your searches against the NSA, even if the search engine was based in the Netherlands there is no guarantee that the secret forces of the MMB aren't tapping the cables.
DDG is good because it doesn't store all your searches and pass them on to all it's advertizers. I'm only marginally concerned that a foreign inteligence agency knows about my posts on schneier - I'm more worried that Amazon puts up the prices on a book I want because Google told them I was searching for it
