Richard Clarke in the news

Former White House Security Czar Richard Clarke was evidently on 60 minutes Sunday recently talking about terrorism & politics (he also has a new book on the way...). Interestingly, Clarke was part of a federal government effort to cozy up to convicted monopolist microsoft regarding an initiative to "bifurcate" the internet..

I believe we must decide to bifurcate cyberspace into the current area of anonymity on one side and a secure zone for critical infrastructure on the other

Recall also that the Department of Homeland Security chose Microsoft as it's exclusive supplier of desktop and server software. (DHS chooses the least secure product...)

From John Robb...
