Did you read the whole article?

Update at 3:14 p.m. PDT: I just talked to Jena Longo, deputy communications director for the Senate Commerce committee, on the phone. She sent me e-mail with this statement:

The president of the United States has always had the constitutional authority, and duty, to protect the American people and direct the national response to any emergency that threatens the security and safety of the United States. The Rockefeller-Snowe Cybersecurity bill makes it clear that the president's authority includes securing our national cyber infrastructure from attack. The section of the bill that addresses this issue, applies specifically to the national response to a severe attack or natural disaster. This particular legislative language is based on longstanding statutory authorities for wartime use of communications networks. To be very clear, the Rockefeller-Snowe bill will not empower a "government shutdown or takeover of the Internet" and any suggestion otherwise is misleading and false. The purpose of this language is to clarify how the president directs the public-private response to a crisis, secure our economy and safeguard our financial networks, protect the American people, their privacy and civil liberties, and coordinate the government's response.

anyway,I read the details I guess it leaves us open to Government interpretation of exactly what a cyber-attack is.So...I guess that would be determined by the Obama administration.would it be possible for them to alter the truth?

The article also goes on to say that:

Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for an on-the-record answer to these four questions that I asked her colleague on Wednesday. I'll let you know if and when I get a response.
Until the details of this are properly vetted and reviewed, I will not feel at all comfy with it being implemented.

The IRS is already using MySpace and Facebook to catch tax evaders so I would not be at all surprised by what may come in the future

Some of his questions are interesting.

Did you guys happen to notice who he works for?
CBS news, the most hated of the media elite. Gotta love the irony of that.

Snowe is a crypto-democrat who only pretended to be a republican during
the years of the Chimp in order to get the GOP to do the outrageous things
it did.

The skill of any good magician is not actually magic, but rather getting you to focus your attention away from the sleight of hand that occurs.
