AIR FORCE SEEKING CONTROL OVER ALL COMPUTERS


Jesus H Christ with a laptop. What in the hell is the US becoming? Certainly nothing I'm comfortable with.
The Air Force wants a suite of hacker tools, to give it "access" to -- and "full control" of -- any kind of computer there is. And once the info warriors are in, the Air Force wants them to keep tabs on their "adversaries' information infrastructure completely undetected."

The government is growing increasingly interested in waging war online. The Air Force recently put together a "Cyberspace Command," with a charter to rule networks the way its fighter jets rule the skies. The Department of Homeland Security, Darpa, and other agencies are teaming up for a five-year, $30 billion "national cybersecurity initiative." That includes an electronic test range, where federally-funded hackers can test out the latest electronic attacks. "You used to need an army to wage a war," a recent Air Force commercial notes. "Now, all you need is an Internet connection."

I'll be as polite as I can. I have nothing to hide. Ask me anything and I'll give an honest answer. Medical? Financial? Faithfulness? Sexual proclivities? Just ask.

But keep your fucking nose out of my business!
