The White House's acting cybersecurity czar announced her resignation Monday, in a setback to the Obama administration's efforts to better protect the computer networks critical to national security and the global economy.

The resignation highlights the difficulty the White House has had following through on its cybersecurity effort. President Barack Obama first outlined his cybersecurity plans in a high-profile speech May 29, announcing his intention to create a top White House cybersecurity post -- a position he has yet to fill.

I have a deep feeling that this resignation will come back to haunt this Adminastration during the next election if Obama tries to run for his second term. That is of course he doesn't try to pass a law removing term limits as discussed and reported by almost every media source. I also believe that this is a great thing in the fight towards keeping our liberties and privacy rights when it comes to the Government spying on everyday John Q Public as we should be the target of this BS war on terror put in place to control us more then targetting those who might/may attack us. We really should pay attention to who he picks to replace Melissa Hathaway.
