Cyberwar Hype Intended To Destroy The Open Internet
The biggest threat to the open internet is not Chinese government hackers or greedy anti-net-neutrality ISPs, it's Michael McConnell, the former director of national intelligence.
McConnell's not dangerous because he knows anything about SQL injection hacks, but because he knows about social engineering. He's the nice-seeming guy who's willing and able to use fear-mongering to manipulate the federal bureaucracy for his own ends, while coming off like a straight shooter to those who are not in the know.
When he was head of the country's national intelligence, he scaredPresident Bush with visions of e-doom, prompting the president to sign a comprehensive secret order that unleashed tens of billions of dollars into the military's black budget so they could start making firewalls and building malware into military equipment.
