Obama

 

Your one last place to hide will be taken over by the government with the newly appointed “cyber czar”…just think, all those bloggers out there who have been spreading there “hate” messages all over the internet will now have to worry about the government watching their every move. If I were them, I would go deep into the internet underground and form an internet rebellion to counter such an invasion of government control. Not only has the government silenced your voice in congress now they are appointing a “czar” to silence your voice online…I see computers being shut down all over the world……I wonder if those of us who have praised President Obama will be rewarded for being good boys and girls? (in case you take this seriously…stop it…they aren’t after us…lol)

“To oversee an enhanced security system for the nation’s computer networks, Obama is creating a “cyber czar” as part of a long-awaited plan stemming from a review he ordered shortly after taking office.

On Friday, Obama is expected to lay out broad goals for dealing with cyber threats while depicting the U.S. as a digital nation that needs to provide the education required to keep pace with technology and attract and retain a cyber-savvy work force. He also is expected to call for a new education campaign to raise public awareness of the challenges and threats related to cyber security.”

“Government and military officials have acknowledged that U.S. computer networks are constantly assailed by attacks and scans, ranging from nuisance hacking to more nefarious probes and attacks. Some suggest that the actions at times are a form of cyber espionage from other nations, such as China.

Obama is not expected to announce who will get the job during Friday’s unveiling of the review, according to an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the selection process is ongoing. Other officials close to the issue say a handful of experts — both in and out of government — are under consideration.” http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090529/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_cyber_struggles

Don’t Be A Dick, Cheney!

Former Vice President Dick Cheney may have largely stayed under the radar during his time in the Bush administration, but he is not going softly into that good night, seemingly launching a one-man campaign to fight for his legacy and — in his view — the safety of the nation.

He took his case to the airwaves again Tuesday, and lashed out at the Obama team’s decision to soon hand over 44 photos showing abuse of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan to the American Civil Liberties Union as a judge had ordered. Cheney said releasing the photos would only make the country less safe.

The photographs are part of a 2003 Freedom of Information Act court case by the ACLU for all information relating to the treatment of detainees. Courts had ruled in favor of releasing the photographs into public view even though Bush administration officials argued that releasing the photographs would violate the Geneva Conventions, which protect prisoners of war and detained civilians “against insults and public curiosity” and it would also violate U.S. obligations toward detainees and could even prompt outrage against the United States. http://www.abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=7574605&page=1

Where have you been VP Cheney? The outrage was going on the entire time you were in Office! Now, you want to protect the detainees? You are just trying to cover your own ass. Go back to sleep, sir. You were and are, continuing to be an embarassment to your party and this country. Don’t worry, President Obama will clean this one up for you too.

UPDATE: President Barack Obama is seeking to block the release of hundreds of photos showing prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan being abused, reversing his position after military commanders warned that the images could stoke anti-American sentiment and endanger U.S. troops. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_pentagon_abuse_photos

No one wants to create problems but we need to be careful we are not doing this just to cover up past administrators mistakes. Our troops have my toal support!
