I thought Al Gore invented the internet. (No, just joking). Well, that was alot of history there, thanks.
Erasurehead just filled me on the fact that the pentagon's sensitive stuff lives on a separate secured network (internet?), that no one could hack
So now I wonder why then is Rockefeller using the public internet as an example of a threat? How can any of the gov's info be comprised if it's on a
closed secure network?
Al Gore flubs his line, he meant to say he invented the Green Movement. Naturally this is why Al isn't run for office anymore. The script for that
speach was being sent to the teleprompter over the Internet, honest mistake right?
You have the internet (open network) intrenet (closed network) ethernet (over the air atmospheric signal connection to the attena to the lines of the
An intrenet is designed to contain the communications and flow of information just between a closed network of computers that are all wired to one
another. Some government agencies and private business have an intrenet. Most though still have some ability to access the internet itself. Though
their intrenet IP Addresses aren't ones that could be found through a google search, to provide your PC an address to access their servers. The
military and government though sometimes use the ethernet, through laptops, to gain access to the Internet, to gain access to the Intrenet that they
actually have the address of the servers too. For about 800 dollars or depending how good a negotiator you are, you can pick up a U.S. Army, Marine
Core, or Airforce laptop used at a bazaar in many places of Pakistan. Some end up there when security details running private contractors into
Afghanistan get ambushed, some just get misplaced by careless officers that they are sometimes traced back to, if it's an American Intelligence Agent
who is lucky enough to snap it up while on sale before anyone else does in the Bazaars. This is one of the ways that you might actually come accross
the codes to the intranet servers, through the internet to get there, the addresses, passwords, and security codes are stored in these laptops for
convenience in their memories.
Hackers try all the time to guess the security codes and IP Addresses of government computers, the firewalls are designed to be virtually impossible
to get through, but evidently some hackers live for glory.
The truth is that the U.S. Military is ambushed frequently in escort missions well scheduled in advance of contractors, because the Taliban sometimes
finds the schedules already stored on recently acquired laptops are can easily connect to the Servers the information is typically accessed by the
soldiers responsible for these missions.
The hard part about securing the Internet is that even though it can be easy to detect an intrustion to the firewall blocking it then from where the
intruder is actually trying to go in a huge intranet network of servers and personal workstations attached to them is hard once they are in, it's
also hard to trace back to where it came from at times.
Sometimes the only thing you can then do is shut down the network and reconfigure the firewalls, but then you are loosing all that productivity in the
Rockefeller though is much more worried about the corporate private sectors computers, which in his mind, is the government, and is the military,
because the military does not exist to secure our nations borders, but exists to secure areas of the world where our corporations are having a hard
time safely doing business, and keeping their contracts honored, the government essentially exists to pass into law the bills that help grow the
corporations, and sometimes fund them with tax dollars, and to direct the militray. Because of how the world is really run and our nation, men like
Rockefeller, see the corporations they own as the government and as the military.
Corporate computers are much more vulnerable to attack because they have to communicate with a far wider variety of sources using the internet.
Hacking into a major bank's network, and transferring their funds out electronically could bring a bank down in relatively short order. Hacking into
a large brokerage's computer, or even the Nasdag or Dow and executing bogus sell or buy orders could trigger a sound corporations stock to plummet in
value, wipe out investor confidence and prevent investment and cash flow into a large corporation, imagine if at the same time that corporations bank
account was being drained through another account, now imagine that corporation is Gruman with billions of dollars of defense contracts, producing
equipment for the military, it no longer has cash on hand, or investors funding, to pay it's employees and buy it's raw materials, and delivery is
delayed to front line troops waiting on it. Now of course the Government will step in and get Gruman money, but now you are really exposing the
malfesance in government a lot more than you care to, because they have to cook up some phoney new bill, that leads to some phoney new purchase, to
justify publicly why they are giving Gruman more money for the weapons they arlready paid for, which even if you wanted to be honest and say hey,
it's because this computer attack took place that did this and that, now you have just told every hacker in the world, you too might succeed in
something similiar by admitting it happened.
The Internet is a very dicey proposition in so many ways for the Powers that Be which Rockefeller is one of, and so you better understand, just who
Rockefeller really is, while everyone joked that Dick Cheyney ran the White House for George Bush, who Dick Cheyney bowed and took his orders from was
Senator Rockefeller. He the man!
As in the, as in the man.
He is the man who also runs CFR, the Council for Foreign Relations it is one of the families many corporations and philanthropic foundations.
CFR has a subsidiary in New York City, called the United Nations. You might have heard of it.
As far as the United States goes, he is actually the man in charge, and is the second most wealthy and powerful man in the world. A world the United
Nations meets in New York, so he can keep on top of most of them too.
So when Rockefeller says the Internet is dangerous to the U.S. Government well that is him, if he says it is dangerous to the U.S. Military, that's
him too, and if he says it's dangerous to the Corproations well that's him three!
If he sneezes the rest of the world reaches for a kleenex and you should too, you never know what you might catch!
