    By leaking the origin of the Stuxnet cyberattack, President Obama's Administration has invited an Iranian cyberwarfare counterattack on the United States.

    My God! what is the problem with the Obama administration? Do they have to leak everything?

    It's a very dangerous and stupid game they play.

    ^^^

    The FBI is investigating who leaked the information.

    "The FBI has opened an investigation into who disclosed information about a classified U.S. cyberattack program aimed at Iran's nuclear facilities, according to two people familiar with the probe. The investigation follows publication last week of details of the cyber-sabotage program, including the use of a computer worm called Stuxnet, which Iran has acknowledged it found in its computers.
    The Central Intelligence Agency ran the operation in conjunction with Idaho National Laboratory, the Israeli government and other U.S. agencies, according to people familiar with the efforts. The covert effort also includes drone surveillance and cyberspying on Iranian scientists, the people said."

    Did America's Cyber Attack on Iran Make Us More Vulnerable?

    "After years of downplaying offensive U.S. cyber capabilities and fretting about Chinese cyber weapons, a major assumption has been turned on its head: America has now conceded that it conducted the most sophisticated state-sponsored cyber attack in the history of civilization."

    "Both China and Russia have gone on the record saying that they would view an operation like Olympic Games--a military-led cyber attack against another country--as an aggressive act. (The National Security Agency is a defense intelligence agency; the Central Intelligence Agency, which is not, almost certainly played a role in introducing the weapon into the Iranian centrifuge processing system.)"

    "In the end, the U.S. officials who approved Olympic Games decided that America's national security interests demanded an action that, if revealed, might hinder its long-term interests. Our enemies in the cybersphere will help determine whether it was worth it.".

    Obama disagrees with you, so you better not vote for him. So you agree you'll be voting for Romney, who is guilty of no such thing.

    In other words, it doesn't support Iranian retaliation.

    Two reactions to this. First, is there any hard proof that they leaked it, or is that speculation? Second, if it was leaked intentionally, there may well have been a pretty good reason for it. Governments leak stuff like this all the time for a variety of reasons.

    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.
    How does that 'disarm' Iran?
