Govt Practices For War On Blogs

This is really fucked up. Say goodbye to free speech.

U.S. Concludes 'Cyber Storm' Mock Attacks
AP: The government concluded its "Cyber Storm" wargame Friday, its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.


Participants confirmed parts of the worldwide simulation challenged government officials and industry executives to respond to deliberate misinformation campaigns and activist calls by Internet bloggers, online diarists whose "Web logs" include political rantings and musings about current events
So the govt gets to decide what is misinformation? This administration, and its accomplice the corporate media, that specializes in misinformation and outright propaganda campaigns?
And they will put a stop to activist calls?
