Posted in Cyberterrorism, Shoeshine at 2:57 pm by George Smith

From the wire: The source of the intelligence leaks that revealed the National Security Agency’s massive domestic surveillance program last week was identified on Sunday by the Guardian as Edward Snowden, a soft-spoken 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of NSA defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton … “I don’t want to […]


Mr. Cyberwar-Shoeshine

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Cyberterrorism at 9:24 am by George Smith

There’s no place safe from electronic Pearl Harbor, not even lowly Huntsville, Alabama. Or rather, there’s no place the plutocrat cutpurses and their shoeshine boys in the national cyberwar industry find too small if there are taxpayer dollars to be taken off the rubes. Infamous cyberwar-shoeshine man, Mike McConnell, picked up his check from the […]


To protect and serve the plutocracy: Our cyberwar defenders

Posted in Cyberterrorism at 1:44 pm by George Smith

I continue to maintain the cyber-defense industry is for the haves. Half the populace could be in plywood shacks and lining up for a chance to have what’s left of the laundry done at homeless centers and we’d still have to put up with warning about cyber-attacks on the financial system. These assembled quotes, inspired […]


The Plutocrat of Cyberwar speaks

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Cyberterrorism, Decline and Fall at 9:19 am by George Smith

A dose of horseshit from plutocrat Richard Clarke today, one of the fathers of cyberwar and cyberterror furor going back to the Clinton administration. Clarke opines on the pages of a Boston newspaper. Very little of it is worth reading for value in 2011 America. Arguments about cyberwar are of no interest to the American […]


Cult of Cyberwar: Cult Chieftain wins debate, bad guys thought good fellows by audience

Posted in Cyberterrorism at 8:41 pm by George Smith

Wrong venue, wrong audience. You’re in the wrong place when you’re trying to argue ” ‘The Cyber War Threat Has Been Grossly Exaggerated’” before an audience at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.” — this from NPR here. Sort of reminiscent of famous catastrophic bills in rock and roll. Like the Jimi Hendrix Experience opening for […]


Cult of Cyberwar & the grand old party of crazy mean people

Posted in Cyberterrorism at 1:21 pm by George Smith

Today, speaking for itself: Several Republicans have criticized President Obama for placing new limits on the use of U.S. nuclear weapons, but Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., raised eyebrows among liberal foreign policy observers by suggesting during a Wednesday rally with Sarah Palin that the American nuclear arsenal is needed even to deter cyber attacks. “If […]


Cult of Cyberwar: I’ve already seen this movie

Posted in Cyberterrorism at 1:27 pm by George Smith

Everyone in the political class and mainstream media acts like the current news about cyberattack on the nation is unique. It’s not. There was a paroxysm on it back in 2003 when the first strategy to secure cyberspace was unveiled. At the time, I was asked to comment on an old article addressing it in […]


Cult of Cyberwar Chieftain Admits Cult Has Overdone It

Posted in Cyberterrorism, Extremism at 9:45 am by George Smith

One of the headmen of the Cult of Cyberwar, James Lewis of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, admits the cult has overdone it in recent months. This in a short essay, “The Cyber War Has Not Begun,” here. Lewis writes: No nation has launched a cyber war or cyber attack against the United […]


Cult of Cyberwar: Laugher of the Day

Posted in Cyberterrorism, Extremism at 12:54 pm by George Smith

Americans are nothing if not the foremost braggarts in the world. It’s embedded in the national DNA. There isn’t a day that goes by without someone being proclaimed a rockstar, a wizard, a true star. Usually in complete absence of any proof why this should be so except that lickspittling in corporate America. Today’s headline […]


Cult of Cyberwar: When Booz Allen’s Mouthpiece Attacks

Posted in Cyberterrorism at 2:13 pm by George Smith

Smiling Mike McConnell, one of the most famous salesmen-in-chiefs of the cult of cyberwar. Committed to hiring computer security specialists from the clutches of the government then leasing them back at premium rates for the benefit of Booz Allen business. From today’s news, Mike McConnell of Booz Allen’s cybersecurity sales unit, again making a putsch/pitch […]
