I just visited Drudge Report, and encountered the new lead story. While scanning the text I was struck by the sequence of the headlines in the last 24 hours. First there was a full panic about hacked government sites and ISIS threats to our soldiers. And now, the president uses the moment to push his next effort to control the internet. ~ TD
YahooNews: Obama renews push
for cybersecurity law
Washington (AFP) – President Barack Obama made a renewed push Tuesday for cybersecurity legislation Blah blah blah…
Blah blah blah… Sony attack… Blah blah blah… Twitter account that was hacked by Islamist jihadist sympathizers yesterday… Blah blah blah…
“…make sure that we are much more effective in protecting the American people from these kinds of cyberattacks…” Blah blah blah…
…enhances collaboration and information sharing amongst the private sector” Blah blah blah…
…allow the private sector to share data on threats without fear of liability… Blah blah blah…
Remember the panicked headlines this morning about generals’ home addresses being published on ISIS hacked Twitter and CENTCOM pages?
Well now all you have is a couple of links on the lower right column of the DrudgeReport.
AND please note the downgraded link above:
“Tracked Back to Maryland.”
ISIS hack tracked to somewhere in Maryland?
Hmmmm… kinda close to DC, dontcha think?
And one line of speculation about the “Sony Hack” was that it was a mutually beneficial fraud pulled of by Sony and the White House. It would benefit Sony as a publicity stunt for the release of a tediously sophomoric movie, and the White House in their push to take control of the internet. You know, the internet? That pesky place where the government still can’t force their spin on every piece of news?
Is it just me, or is anybody else’s “Spidey sense” tingling about this sequence of news stories?
