This is a pretty old post, but this article kept getting censored by Facebook and led me to give up on Facebook totally as a means of communication. It was termed “Abusive Content.” I feel a crackdown in the form of cyber-security act is behind Anonymous’ future attack against Facebook. It would be like Facebook and Anonymous were two arms of the same animal. That animal wants control of the internet.
Should Obama Control the Internet?
A new bill would give the President emergency authority to halt web traffic and access private data.Thu Apr. 2, 2009 12:33 PM PDT
Should President Obama have the power to shut down domestic Internet traffic during a state of emergency?
Senators John Rockefeller (D-W. Va.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine)
think so. On Wednesday they introduced a bill to establish the Office of
the National Cybersecurity Advisor—an arm of the executive branch that
would have vast power to monitor and control Internet traffic to protect
against threats to critical cyber infrastructure. That broad power is
rattling some civil libertarians.
The Cybersecurity Act of 2009
(PDF) gives the president the ability to “declare a cybersecurity
emergency” and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any “critical”
information network “in the interest of national security.”
