Cyberattacks Target Oil in the Middle East
According to an article in The New York Times, on August 15 of this year a successful cyberattack struck Aramco, Saudi Arabia’s national oil company and the world’s largest oil producer.

Tech at Saturday Morning: Google’s FTC problem; Panetta unhinged on cybersecurity
Funny how Google says they can’t fix Googlebombs when the fact is, Google is constantly improving its search algorithms. After all, the Bush-era Googlebombs of WhiteHouse.gov disappeared pretty quick after Obama was elected.

The Pentagon quickly sought to roll back the remarks. “We face the threats from rising powers — China, India, others — that we have to always have sufficient force protection out there in the Pacific to make sure | Read More »
CIA chief: Waterboarding aided bin Laden raid
If you haven’t read this piece by Dan McLaughlin, consider it your must read of the day.
