Lieberman Bill Gives Feds ‘Emergency’ Powers to Secure Civilian Nets

• Wired
Joe Lieberman wants to give the federal government the power to take over civilian networks’ security, if there’s an “imminent cyber threat.” It’s part of a draft bill, co-sponsored by Senators Lieberman and Susan Collins, that provides the Department of Homeland Security broad authority to ensure that “critical infrastructure” stays up and running in the face of a looming hack attack.

Heh, good luck with that. Short of the cyberwarfare specialists in the military (most of which the Pentagon axed) and a handful of specialists and contractors for the intelligence agencies (most of which have better things to do) the government's tech people are assclowns. Even if what they were asking for was possible, which it isn't because the network was specifically specced and designed by DARPA to resist just such a takeover to keep it out of enemy hands, they don't have the wherewithal. Good effing luck, retards.
