Ex-Bush admin official: Internet giveaway weakens cybersecurity, opens door to Web tax

The U.S. government’s plan to give away authority over the Internet’s core architecture to the “global Internet community” could endanger the security of both the Internet and the U.S. — and open the door to a global tax on Web use.

“U.S. management of the internet has been exemplary and there is no reason to give this away — especially in return for nothing,” former Bush administration State Department senior advisor Christian Whiton told The Daily Caller. “This is the Obama equivalent of Carter’s decision to give away the Panama Canal — only with possibly much worse consequences.”

The U.S. Commerce Department announced late Friday it would relinquish control of The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) — the organization charged with managing domain names, assigning Internet protocol addresses and other crucial Web functions — after its current contract expires next year.

Did someone say this creap in the wh was bright?

Linda, it's not because "this creap in the wh" is dumb, it's all about destroying America.

Obama wants control of the Internet when he takes over the New World Order or wants the NWO to have control when he sticks around and becomes our dictator

this is not wright ,when are we going to stop sealing all of our good to other countrys and the U.N.  WELL IT HAS TO BE THE NEW WORLD ORDER. NOW DO YOU THINK YOUR CONGRESS WILL STOP IT IF NOT THEY NEED TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE. IT IS BAD THAT WE HAVE IRS ANS AND ALL THE OTHER TAKING OUR RIGHTS WAY , SO WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP THEM FROM DOING THIS.WERE IS RAND PAUL OR TED OR JOHN MCCANN OR ANY OF THE ONES WHO SAY THEY ARE FOR THE PEOPLE, NO WERE TO BE SEEN

sure, they want U.N. international law to trump the U.S. Constitution, same reason Kerry was signing the U.N. small arms treaty, to try to trump the U.S. second amendment. Why don't we just pay our taxes directly to the U.N. and call it a day?

Socialists are always at work!!

Obama will do it as he does on the rest of the things that congress passes,,,to our amazement at that,,,he will tell congress "if you do not sign this I will declare martial law and do it without you anyway"

For no reason should this happen.  If it does Obama should be impeached on the spot.  We created the internet and it should not be global or whatever there evil plan is.

Sharon......I agree......but not impeach....instead, physically and immediately removed.

agree.  All communists in the Senate and congress must Go

Is there anything else that this country can give away? How many more actions will be taken to weaken this country to no more than the name? If congress allows this, then we have definitely been had. A President does not have absolute power. It's time the legislative branches to act and do so in a timely manner. The wolf is at the door now.

I am sick and tired of all of this Global equality BS.
