Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano revealed September 19th that an executive order granting the president sweeping power over the Internet is “close to completion.”
Testifying before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Napolitano said that the order is still “being drafted” and vetted by various high-level bureaucrats. But she also indicated that it would be issued as soon as a “few issues” were resolved. Assuming control of the nation´s Internet infrastructure is a DHS responsibility, Napolitano added.
America´s leaders appear determined to ban one of the last true bastions of free speech. Will Americans once again quietly accept?
