Today, yes, TODAY, the USA is under attack. tens of millions have been hit by the attack and it is still ongoing.

This is no joke. The attack has already hit millions and there is no sign the military or intelligence agencies are doing anything to protect America from the growing threat.

Imagine an attack on the US that affected tens of millions, but the media didn't cover it.

Imagine a massive assault on the US that was targeted to hit the most
powerful, most famous, most influential people and the young.

Imagine that some of the USA's most popular, most influential new
companies were brutally attacked and brought to their knees by foreign
agents, with no help from the US government.

... and imagine that the US did not announce that this attack was under way.

It has happened and it is ongoing at this moment.

Three days ago, Melissa Hathaway, the USA's acting cybersecurity czar,
stepped down, for "personal reasons."

Yesterday, Twitter was massively hit by a bot attack, effectively
shutting it down for three hours. That attack is apparently not over.

Facebook and Friendfeed were also suffering from the same kind of attack.

There is some evidence that some part of the attack was initiated in Eastern Europe, possibly Russia.

It came home to me when I realized that my site was under attack and I
read on twitter, when I could get it, that femnisting was also
experiencing problems.

The extent of the attack is hard to gauge but it is clear that even if
just facebook, twitter, and friendfeed are attacked, this has effect
upon tens of millions of Americans.

So where is the federal government? Where are the cybertroops when we need them?

For my site, I have a server management team that can help. I'm sure
all the other sites have teams to help them too. But this is bigger
than that. This is an attack on a wide swathe of contemporary American
culture. It is an attack on some of the most potent communication
systems used in America. Remember, when the US has attacked Iraq or
other nations, taking out communications is among the first goals.

Where is the federal government? Where is the FBI, the CIA, the
Pentagon? Where are all the military powers funded to the tune of over
a trillion a year? Why are they leaving our corporations computers
totally unprotected?
