Cyber Storm...

The government concluded its "Cyber Storm" wargame Friday, its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.


Participants confirmed parts of the worldwide simulation challenged government officials and industry executives to respond to deliberate misinformation campaigns and activist calls by Internet bloggers, online diarists whose "Web logs" include political rantings and musings about current events.


Deliberate misinformation campaigns and activist calls?

I do not like this exercise.  It sounds too much like an excuse for propaganda.  Free speech is not a threat from which a government should defend us.
