Rumsfeld on eBay

Rumsfeld says that terrorist groups have mastered getting media attention. The US government is well behind. Here are some direct quotes from the article:

"Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today’s media age, but … our country has not adapted," Rumsfeld said.

"For the most part, the U.S. government still functions as a ‘five and dime’ store in an eBay world," Rumsfeld said, referring to old-fashioned U.S. retail stores and the online auction house respectively.

The Bush administration has not been the most technically savvy and I am proud to see that someone who is a senior member of the administration is acknowledging how important technology is. The next step is a broadband policy that protects companies and users from predatory two-tier type Internet practices.
