    Link: Staged Cyber Attack Reveals Vulnerability - What is CNN thinking? Just in case the terrorists haven`t thought of this yet, let`s publish the information.

    Correct me if I`m wrong...but wasn`t the CNN the first channel to broadcast the 9/11 incident? :D

    CNN has done this crap more than once. Then they`ll be the first ones to cover the terrorist attacks that result from their "insider" stories. How stupid are their editors?

    From SimCity, I`ve learned how much impact power has on a country`s economy.

    ok to terrorists here is what you need to do:
    1. hack into those generator controls again and bring it down (effects economy)
    2. bring other resources down as well
    3. might as well bring canada`s generators down too so canadian cant help the US
    4. go hijack some planes and bomb NYC again

    CNN once again helping the governement lure the terrorists on some false lead so they waste precious time on some pointless mission.

    If the USA is dumb enough to put control of their powerplants over the internet then they deserve what`s comming.

    yeah they got that during the blackout.
    i couldn`t help but think when that happened, Osama has got to be sitting in a cave somewhere laughing his ass of at us, wondering why he didn`t think of that.

    ...Most news like just produce fear, with no purpose.

    its like the twisted propoganda back in WW1 to keep people from having anti-war decisions. the more people who are scared, the more of them there will be to fight away the bad guys.

    Sometimes I don`t know whether to laugh or cry at America.

    I`ll filter out the crap so the terrorists know exactly what to do:

    - Get someone into the manufacturing plant overseas, where they apparently have access to systems control software passwords
    - Get into the power plant and take control of the system
    - Open valves
    - Change the operating cycle
    - Laugh as you cause $700 bn damage to the US economy

    Maybe its their way of luring terrorists to do something stupid, and then catch them

    I love america :)

    they are pretty smart...instead of crashing 1 plane...they try to crash 4

    instead of blowing up 1 bus...they blow up 3 or 4

    i believe they are planning something global this time...so all around the world simultaneously

    Australia has way too many weak points =[

    So let me get this straight. If CNN didn`t report on this story (and by the way, they weren`t the only ones to do so) then the terrorists would never be able to come up with such a plot? Give me a break. I can`t believe how many people in this country buy in to this whole notion that the public has no right to know anything important. I`m sure the poster of this note would prefer it if CNN and other news outlets only reported on the latest celebrity gossip but I for one wish that the so-called media watchdogs actually did their jobs and reported on the tough, sometimes scary issues.

    I`ll never understand the media. I agree, let`s publish this info so the terrorists know what we`re prepared for.

    jmk4422 I totally agree.

    Just because you learn of this information doesn`t mean a terrorist cell is as ignorant. Chances are they`re a lot more in the know then some average civilian.

    Except that 99% of terrorists are totally incompetent. Seriously, most of them are total idiots - i understand there are the odd few who have done some terrible things with devastating effects (911 to be specific) but we hear about these terrorists ALL the time and how their bomb "didnt go off" or they tried to drive the car rigged with explosives into an airport and missed...

    Uuh, first of all, the system was hacked by a bunch of professionals, intelligent people, no terrorist crack heads. Don`t even begin to deny, that the fundamentalist theocrats, and suicide-bombing jihad people probably never used windows, let alone knowing how to program, or hack.

    Even the most intelligent ones like Osama wouldn`t be able to..

    Iran does have trained professionals, but I can`t imagine how terrorist would get their hands on someone who is capable of this, and going through with it.

    Heh, Theory #2 Saveliy.

    Either they`re incompetent, like you say, or there just aren`t as many Terrorists as the government seems to imply.

    For every Muslim Terrorist, there`s an American Rush Limbaugh listener unknowingly raising a child that isn`t his.

    % wise, more of the US population is in a wheelchair than the % of Muslim`s that are in some way supporting Terrorism.

    I`ve been saying for years. If all the paranoia was justified, this would have been over years ago.

    It would be easy for Osama to get all americans on his side without killing anyone. Just somehow erase all credit card debts without a trace.
