Can the U.S. detect, thwart and respond to a cyber offensive that would leave our nation vulnerable to other, possibly more conventional, offensive efforts? Visions of a “Cyber Pearl Harbor” are forcing decision makers to take steps to avoid such a calamity.
Phi Beta Iota: Pedestrian — and 22 years late. The US Government refused to heed the many warnings from Winn Schwartau and others, including Congressional testimony in 1990 — just as it ignored peak oil and peak water and disease warnings in the 1970's. It appears that 25 years — a quarter century — is the lag time that can be directly related to corruption within those institutions that wish to ignore ethical evidence-based decision-support, and instead continue to betray the public trust and fail to do their Constitutional duty.
