Rerouted through China. Really???

If Information is the lifeblood of our economy, then computers are the citadel in which the information nuggets come to securely rest until needed. Wars are now fought across transmission lines and the front line is the internet. If you don’t believe me read the article entitled “US web traffic rerouted via China Telecom” covered in the BBC Technology News on November 17, 2010, in which it recounts how “traffic to some highly sensitive US websites was briefly rerouted via China.” Traffic that was destined for the US Senate, Secretary of Defense, NASA and Department of Commerce found itself in China.

Wow. How in the heck does that happen?

Are You kidding Me.
