Watching #ZeroDays again ... #Stuxnet ... each time I know more about the story around this
It was Robert Gates that convinced the President in 2007 to place Information Warfare in the CIA (offensive cyber weapons), instead of the department of defense. Hence the CIA and NSA took control, along with US Cyber Command (controller by NSA).
NSA has no authority to launch a cyber attack, but it does have the ability

The US Cyber Command has authority to do a cyber attack (offense), but not the ability

USCC cleverly gives massive military cyber power to CIA and NSA
So Obama ooohed and aaaahed wirh talk about major spending for cyber defense and infrastructure... but it was all really about spending 50+ billion in full cyber offense

#SpyGate #Stuxnet #ZeroDays
Many Americans simply wouldnt let the Obama administration off the hook, and demanded to know who created #Stuxnet . Eventually, Obama's "favorite general" #Cartwright leaked the details ... #RodRosenstein investigated, and nobody was ever charged.
