Russian Hackers ReRouted Google And Apple Cloud Traffic For 2 Hours Yesterday

As one commenter put it:

This was likely a test of a future cyber-attack on our nation.

And, it is yet ANOTHER example of how our internet is not a private, for-profit network -- but a national asset essential to our future and our security.

Instead of being abandoned and turned over to others for their fun and profit, it needs to be carefully governed, regulated, protected and nurtured by our government.

Thanks!  I receive regular briefings on this stuff from the FBI, Dept. Homeland Security, and Secret Service.  There is some jaw-dropping stuff going on out there.  

Of course, Russia is our friend, and Putin didn't hack our last election.
