(DV) Whitney: The Pentagon's War on the Internet :
"The enemy, of course, is you, dear reader, or anyone who refuses to accept their role as a witless cog in New World Order. Seizing the internet is a prudent way of controlling every piece of information that one experiences from cradle to grave; all necessary for an orderly police state... The War Dept. is planning to insert itself into every area of the internet from blogs to chat rooms, from leftist web sites to editorial commentary. The objective is to challenge any tidbit of information that appears on the web that may counter the official narrative: the fairytale of benign American intervention to promote democracy and human rights across the planet."
Here ya' go people, the administration that just ok'd a 385 million dollar contract to Halliburton subsidiary, KBR to build detention centers in the u.s. now has someplace to lock up us pesky bloggers that dare challange the official version of the "truth".
* Note: The Associated Press reported on 2-13-06, “The government concluded its ‘Cyber Storm’ wargame Friday, its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.
“Participants confirmed parts of the worldwide simulation challenged government officials and industry executives to respond to deliberate misinformation campaigns and activist calls by Internet bloggers, online diarists whose ‘Web logs’ include political rantings and musings about current events.”
“Misinformation campaigns”? “Political rantings”? “Musings about current events”?
The administration’s resolve to foreclose on free speech has never been stronger and continues apace.
