Senator Jay Rockefeller, head of the Senate Committee on Finance that steered through Senate Bill S. 666 -- the Biological, Chemical, and Radiological Weapons Countermeasures Research Act introduced by Sen. Joseph Lieberman -- that provided government money to pharmaceutical companies such as Baxter to increase research to develop biological, chemical, and radiological weapons, is now pushing through a bill for the White House to be given the power to switch off the internet in a "cyberrsecurity" emergency, according to a report by Declan McCullagh on CNET.


"CNET News has obtained a summary of a proposal from Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) that would create an Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor, part of the Executive Office of the President. That office would receive the power to disconnect, if it believes they're at risk of a cyberattack, "critical" computer networks from the Internet. "
