Just another day in Washington

U.S. DoD prepares to boot into the Matrix: A Pentagon position paper lays out the rationale for Total Information Systems Control:
"It seems to see the internet as being equivalent to an enemy weapons system. 'Strategy should be based on the premise that the Department [of Defense] will 'fight the net' as it would an enemy weapons system,' it reads. The slogan 'fight the net' appears several times throughout the roadmap. The authors warn that US networks are very vulnerable to attack by hackers, enemies seeking to disable them, or spies looking for intelligence. 'Networks are growing faster than we can defend them... Attack sophistication is increasing... Number of events is increasing.' And, in a grand finale, the document recommends that the United States should seek the ability to 'provide maximum control of the entire electromagnetic spectrum'. US forces should be able to 'disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems dependent on the electromagnetic spectrum'."
It's just a position paper, and the Pentagon writes position papers on all kinds of nonsense, but it's certainly interesting, consideri-- ow ow ow ow ow okay I'll stop I'll stop just turn it off (Via Hoffmania.) _____________________________________________________ On today's episode of CSI:Dorkwatch, Little Ricky gets PWNED!
