    White House picks new cyber coordinator

    By LOLITA C. BALDOR
    Associated Press Writer Dec 22, 7:00 AM EST


    WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House has tapped a corporate cyber security expert and former Bush administration official to lead the effort to shore up the country's computer networks and better coordinate with companies that operate 80 percent of those critical systems.

    Howard A. Schmidt, a former eBay and Microsoft executive, will become the government's cyber security coordinator, weathering a rocky selection process that dragged on for months, as others turned the job down.

    President Barack Obama is expected to make the announcement Tuesday, according to a senior White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been made public yet.

    Interesting LACK of "Security" in the AP Headline...

    I have some Questions... Why have so many others "turned the job down"?...

    Why go after a Former Bushie?...

    And a Big Bad Business Executive?...

    Wonder what his Bonuses were while Barry was Railing Against Bonuses?

    MeThinks this is a Bushie because when the Screams of Civil Liberties Violations start coming, the Left can Exuse them by Blaming it on a "Former Bushie", and in the End do NOTHING to Stop the Claimed Violations.

    Any Thoughts on this?...

    :)

    peace...

    "They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.



    The new version would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for "cybersecurity professionals," and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license. "

    Did S.773 become law?

    I really don't know why we need a cyber-security czar. Can someone explain why we need someone from the government to manage how secure my internet connection is. I'm OK with managing government networks to make them more secure but where does govt get the right to manage the security of my network?

    Honestly, I really just don't trust Obama. I think he is a crook and a second-rate dictator or at least he is trying to be one.

    Man imagine siezing public networks in an emergency. Kinda like in FL people coming on your property and removing Citrus canker infested orange trees without permission or repayment.
    Damn commies.

    With the global warming thing going belly up, you'd think Obama would pick Al Gore. I mean, he did invent the internet.
