Politics and Cyberspace... replayed.

For all the hype that Obama's 60-day security review received, it didn't end up looking much differently than Bush's. No Cyber-czar reporting directly to the president, despite his earlier claim (which I finally found posted here, after some digging). No real changes/re-organizations. Lots of discussions about collaboration, the scary threat, etc.

I liked this comparison that C-Net did between the Bush and Obama reports. Gene Spoffard has a good posting on it if you want an expanded discussion. Bottom line is more of the same... a big political food fight/power struggle between NSA, HSA, DoD, and the other smaller players angling for a piece of the pie.
