Tenet calls for Internet security

The Washington Times is a wingnut rag, but they got there first so everyone links to this UPI story about ex-CIA chief Tenet's calls for Internet security at an information-technology security conference in Washington.

Sound bite of interest: "Access to networks like the World Wide Web might need to be limited to those who can show they take security seriously" (Like the Department of Homeland Security which standardized on MS software, reknowned for its security)

As an aside, "the national press, were excluded from yesterday's event, at Mr. Tenet's request, organizers said."

Oh, and there are plenty of .mil addresses on spambot lists.
