    Catch this sentence: "Americans need to know that they should not expect to have their cell phone and other communications be private--not if the government is going to have to take aggressive action
    to tamp down the threat..." (see below)

    War Game Reveals U.S. Lacks Cyber-Crisis Skills
    Washington Post (02/17/10) P. A3; Nakashima, Ellen

    The Bipartisan Policy Center recently staged the Cyber ShockWave, a
    simulation to demonstrate the plausibility of a cyberattack that could be
    as crippling as the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist strikes. "We were trying to
    tee up specific issues that would be digestible so they would become the
    building blocks of a broader, more comprehensive cyberstrategy," says
    former CIA director Michael Hayden. The simulation, in which the cell
    phones and computers of tens of millions of Americans were turned into
    weapons to shut down the Internet, had 40 million people in the eastern
    United States without electrical power and more than 60 million cell phones
    out of service. Privacy was a key stumbling block in any strategy the
    participants tried to put forth. "Americans need to know that they should
    not expect to have their cell phone and other communications be
    private--not if the government is going to have to take aggressive action
    to tamp down the threat," says Jamie Gorelick, a former deputy attorney
    general. Participants also struggled with how far to go in regulating the
    private sector. The private sector is not prepared to defend against a
    cyber act of war, says former U.S. Department of Homeland Security
    assistant secretary Stewart Baker.

    That woman is a curse to this country. All liberals are for that matter. While working for slick willie, she almost singlehandedly erected a wall of separation between Justice and Intelligence. Why????? To hide slick willies massive campaign donations, most coming straight from the Chi-coms.


    What were the other main consequences of that wall of separation?? A 9/11 terrorist owned laptop was RETURNED,,,without scrutiny or inspection. Thanks,,slick willie. Thanks, liberals.

    If you question this, read the formal 9/11 Commission Report.


    Dahaub, read this again;


    "Americans need to know that they should not expect to have their cell phone and other communications be private--not if the government is going to have to take aggressive action to tamp down the threat," says Jamie Gorelick, a former deputy attorney general."
