Schmidt is president of the Information Security Forum, a nonprofit consortium of 300 large corporations and public-sector organizations working on cybersecurity issues.

Schmidt, a cyber-adviser in President George W. Bush's administration, will be based in the National Security Council. He will report to the national security adviser to coordinate federal government cybersecurity policy for both military and civilian agencies


A veteran of the U.S. Air Force and FBI, Schmidt earlier in his career served as chief security officer at Microsoft Corp and as chief information security officer at eBay... he worked in President Bush's admin as a "cyber-advisor". lol any dirt on this douchebag, his powers or his connections?

Why is he a douchebag? Because he's in government? And why look for "dirt" in the first place? That's how J. Edgar Hoover worked and we know how that turned out.

Late in life and after his death, Hoover became an increasingly controversial figure. He exceeded the jurisdiction of the FBI.[1] He used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders,[2] and to use illegal methods to collect evidence.[3] It is because of Hoover's long and controversial reign that FBI directors are now limited to 10-year terms.[4]

uh, how does any of that pertain to me? the guy has corprate connections and has served (serving) in the last two white houses that just happen to be our two worst presidency's in almost 100's years if not ever... the guy is our nation's "cyber chief". the chance this guy isnt a douchebag is slim to none... you dont get into a position like that and not be part of the scheme of things.
