Tax Dollars at Waste: USAF Cyber Command Suspended

Remember all that press last year about the pending Internet apocalypse? I sure do. At the time I said "how convenient - this AF General is looking for money for his 'Cyber Command' program and suddenly there's a huge, looming, imminent threat." Well, as it turns out, this program has now been suspended. It's little wonder, too. As the article points out, it's not like there aren't already computer warfare divisions in the Navy and Army already that have well-established track records (didn't the legendary SANS guru Stephen Northcutt have involvement with the Naval program some 20-30 years ago?!?). So, perhaps, for once, we'll see less tax dollars wasted for this one small instance. Oy!
