    Did anyone watch this? It presented many questions as to how we would quickly, yet legally and without infringing on privacy, stop such a cyber virus from completely shutting down all forms of communication. The group assembled was bipartisan, with Michael Chertoff posing as chairman of the real "situation room" meeting of principals.

    I'm so glad the two hours has been put up on YouTube because we all need to be concerned about how easy this would be.

    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    I posted this here, because I wasn't sure where else it fit. So I leave that up to the mods.
