Obama Administration Turns the Internet Over to the Globalists

•, Kurt Nimmo
 On Friday the U.S. Commerce Department released its grasp on the internet. Oversight of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, will be passed on to the “global internet community” next year. ICANN, under a Commerce Department contract, has issued domain names since 2000.

The United States has played a leading role in managing internet technology but has faced pressure to globalize management of the internet over the last few years.

“We will not accept a proposal that replaces the NTIA role with a government-led or an intergovernmental solution,” said National Telecommunications & Information Administration boss Larry Strickling. The NITTA is an agency within the Commerce Department.

During the World Summit on Information Society more than a decade ago, it was proposed that governments not have too much control over the internet. “The international management of the Internet should be multilateral, transparent and democratic, with the full involvement of governments, the private sector, civil society and international organizations.”
