Why is Rumsfeld doing the monster mash?
What do you know about psyops? There is a declassified document called the "Information Operations Roadmap" obtained by the National Security Archives at George Washington University using the Freedom of Information Act that seems to see the internet as the "equivalent to an enemy weapons system," noting the slogan "fight the net" appears several times in the context. The document, signed by "Master of Puppets" Rumsfeld, recommends that the U.S. "should seek the ability to provide maximum control of the entire electromagnetic spectrum." U.S. forces should be able to "disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems dependant on the electromagnetic spectrum."
So. It seems the U.S. military seeks the capability to knock out every telephone, every networked computer, every radar system on the planet, or so says Adam Brookes, a BBC Pentagon news correspondant in an article titled "Bloggers Beware."
And, how does this relate to the whole Google lawsuit thing? Or doesn't it?
