"Before obama sensor's[sic] out the internet i want to say..." that this thread is not even worthy(in my opinion) of even being in "skunk works"...this has the smell of a B.T.S. "RANT" all over it!
The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 (PDF) gives the president the ability to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any "critical" information network "in the interest of national security." The bill does not define a critical information network or a cybersecurity emergency. That definition would be left to the president.
