The president who made a stirring declaration about internet freedom authorised a wave of cyber-attacks on Iran, it has been revealed
'"Great nations", said General (and President) de Gaulle, "do not have friends; they merely have interests". Substitute "ethics" for "friends" and you'd be closer to the mark. In May 2011, the Obama administrationpublished an admirable document setting out the US's international strategy for cyberspace. It was subtitled "Prosperity, Security, and Openness in a Networked World", and contained a foreword signed by the president himself."Today," wrote Obama, "as nations and people harness the networks that are all around us, we have a choice. We can either work together to realise their potential for greater prosperity and security, or we can succumb to narrow interests and undue fears that limit progress. Cybersecurity is not an end unto itself; it is instead an obligation that our governments and societies must take on willingly, to ensure that innovation continues to flourish, drive markets, and improve lives."
