They just so want Die Hard 4 to be true.... but SCADA systems don't run on networks connected to the Internet, or other public network and if they ever were to be connected to a public network, you'd sack the Network Architect rather than give the CIA a budget to go chase these elusive 'cyberterrorists'.
Even bridging to a critical control network is a firing offense in major suppliers.
That attempt to link terrorism and the internet was simply to give ammo to Bush & Blair to silence dissenting voices on an uncontrolled medium. Those damn bloggers keep going off message! How dare they! Lets call them cyberterrorists and silence them!
Now I see the CIA wants to reduce the number of connections to the internet for the USA.gov to 50 points, so that only 50 political appointees could control the outflow of information.
And that it wants access to all messages and all communications all the time. Except the destroyed CIA water boarding videos, and related emails, oh and except Bush's secret GOP email account used to bypass the requirement to keep records.
Yeh gee sure, I really believe this story.....
