Cyber Storm tests US infrastructure defences
[...]I think the government was running the risk of being forced to be accountable for takings when I was about to quit certain email accounts due to extremely slow page download time. Maybe they're covered under the new eminent domain legislation. Could this possibly also account for why I couldn't publish on my blog for several extended periods of time during the past week? Big brother is taking steps to prohibit freedom of speech and expression! The police state encroacheth, evolveth and further manifesteth.
The operation, codenamed Cyber Storm, was carried out by the US Department of Homeland Security, and received assistance from the UK’s Ministry of Defence and the National Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre (NISCC), which works to prevent similar attacks in the UK.
Some 115 federal and state agencies, private sector organisations and other foreign governments took part in the week-long US operation.
The exercise also looked at how blogging web sites could be used by protesters or terrorist groups to spread misinformation.
Ah, it's so nice to know that I am a marked blogger.
Everything is back to "normal" tonight though. Have a good weekend.
With that said, I would like to humbly re-request your resignations from the executive administration, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney.
