    Hey, I once heard that if you wrote the words "Bomb, President & Allah" or spoke them on the phone, you'd be put on a list.

    Oh NO!....I just did!:D

    Um, you really need to start checking dates on things......he resigned back in March, 2009.

    On March 5, 2009, less than a year after the position was created, he stated that he would resign as the Director of the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) on Friday, March 13, 2009. He stated that a lack of cooperation from the NSA and insufficient funding led to his resignation.

    And he wasn't "Obama government" he was a Bush appointee from the get-go.

    Cyber-Security Chieft post WAS created during Obama administration. You are obcessed with BUSH too much. Obama is in charge. 'Lack of cooperation and insufficient funding' were not the REAL reason which he RESIGNED according to this article. It's what it's.

    What part of 2008 not being part of the Obama administration don't you understand? And why do you keep posting last year's news as if it were current?

    Beckstrom joined the Bush administration's Department of Homeland Security in March of 2008, to create a new inter-agency group to coordinate information sharing about cyber attacks. From the start, concerns about how the new department would fit in with other parts of DHS. Beckstrom was not a cybersecurity expert, but was apparently chosen for his private sector background, and his management abilities.

    I know who Rod Beckstrom is but the reason I posted this news was to show you that not everybody in the administration agreed with his boss's policy but you may know it.

    Furthermore, it's nice to hear how this cyber-security affects our democracy process. Understood?

    I'm not good at number. Now, you see why i have hard time keeping track the number of my Obama threads daily. It's done UNINTENTIONALLY. Please don't jump on me when you see my #5 Obama threads.

    I appreciate the reminder from liberals here such as reflexblue.

    First off, it's not "news" if it's 10 months old.

    Second of all, his "boss" was not Obama, his "boss" was Bush and so no, I did not expect him to agree with Obama nor was I suprised when he quit less than 2 months after Obama took office. Were you?

    It's news in the context of another cyber security czar being named. The letter referenced by the OP was sent last week.

    No, PF13, it was NOT "sent last week." Your source is decidely out of touch with reality in more ways than one.

    From The Huffington Post
    03/ 6/09 08:09 PM


    In a blunt letter to Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, Beckstrom complained about a shortage of money for the center and a clash over whether the National Security Agency should control cyber efforts. The role of the NSA in protecting domestic computer networks has triggered debate, particularly among privacy and civil liberties groups who oppose giving such control to U.S. spy agencies.

    It doesn't matter where it came from, Harry, the point is that the letter was sent and released back in early March of this year - not last week as PR keeps insisting.

    That's a line from Enemy of the State. It's an interesting movie to watch today with the benefit of over a decade of hindsight.

    From the OP's link:


    I see no reason why the HuffPO is more reliable than the NMJ. Point is there are problems, as we have seen this week.

    Maybe because the date on the HuffPo is March, 2009? Which is almost 10 months ago - not "last week" and they were aleady quoting the letter?

    Besides that, your title here is quite misleading. Where, in the letter, did it say "YOU ARE CRAZY?"

    By the way, are you still insisting that the Cyber-Security Chief position was something Obama created or are you ready to concede that Bush set that one up?

    If Obama wasn't crazy, his chief would not leave, would he? It's common sense!

    Bush was talking about creating cyber-security position BUT Obama officially created it 5 or 6 months ago. Did you forget Obama sworning his chief few months ago?
