Internet Infrastructure : Hanging on "a Wire and a Prayer"

Few realize the way in which a terrorist attack could cause devastation,  without deaths,  bombs and explosives,  but by attacking the internet.  Reading this article and pondering a web sabotage is important.

And yet equally important is the protection of a free democracy from over-zealous Presidential powers.  Civil liberties groups were concerned with the breakdown of civil liberties under the spying possibilities of Bush's Patriot Act.  Now,  the Cyber-security Act of 2009 raises the same questions under  a Barack Obama administration.
