Dangerous Blogger

This is a bit old, but check out this article from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. File this under “weirdness.”

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.

Since when did free speech become a threat to national security? Big Brother is not only watching, he’s getting weirder and more paranoid.
