    Looks like all those hackers recruited and placed on our payroll has paid off, lol.

    This is pandora's box, and it's been opened. Unlike enriched uranium, this can't be traced, it's simple to do (relatively speaking), and just about anyone can do it, though some much better than others.

    Things like this are exactly why our government still rellies on paper for so many things, despite budgetary concerns.

    Well, what do you believe?
    How many visits have there been in the past ~20 months? Russia may have enough data on it to pin down any enriched fuel that comes from it but I doubt anyone else does.

    one of my fears is that this will set off a chain of events that results in an attack on the US. every militaristic nation in the world probably has stuxnet now, and most have probably made used it to make their own weapon.

    that's the problem with game changing weapons : it's only a matter of time until your "enemy" gets one.

    i'd prefer we use more of our innovative power to address energy and the economy. want to disarm Iran? stop buying oil.

    Stuxnet is an open source virus. Anyone can get their hands on it and use in it or as a variant of it. It has been available for some time now.

    Further, there are already severe sanctions on Iran and they are producing oil and IIRC just stockpiling it.

    And that is the virus we know of. Do we really think that we know of our government most powerful cyber weapon? I highly doubt we are that informed.

    BHO had collected more money from Wasll Street than any other previous president, which explains all the crony capitalism going on with GM, GE, Solyndra and all the rest. Perhaps there might be change but thats unlikely with Obama spreading the dough around.

    Obama still flush with cash from financial sector despite frosty relations - The Washington Post
