"al Qaeda Definitely Behind Crippling Cyber Attack"

Washington--Both the Pentagon and the CIA say that 'al Qaeda' was definitely behind the cyber attack that hit the country's internet backbone, severely damaging sensitive equipment and comprising our nation's security.

"This certainly has the fingerprints of somebody like Bin Laden," stated Rita Katz of SITE, a privately run internet search company that picks up sensitive plans on future terrorist attacks from Internet chat rooms.

After several days of coordinated attacks against networks used by the Pentagon, the CIA and the NSA, the unknown type of virus spread into ISP's around the nation, shutting down many, denying access to the web for millions of Americans.

Dennis Blair, Director of National Intelligence said they got blind sided by this intensity of this attack and that the DC intelligence community never managed to connect the dots to prevent this type of terrorist attack.

President Obama is preparing to ask Congress for increased vigilance over the Internet by granting the "Cyber Czar" more power and the ability to oversee vital national security networks and servers. "We will not stand by while Bin Laden and his kind threaten this great nation's security, We will respond forcefully to this terror by shutting out those evil-doers who wish to do us harm," said President Obama.

According to Obama's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, the White House is leaning towards buying internet security software from an Israeli firm in Tel Aviv.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated that they had been working towards developing a safer internet environment, one that could not be comprised by 'al Qaeda.' Secretary Napolitano said she was going to advise President Obama to install a type of 'gatekeeper' software at sensitive internet portals and infrastructure called "Overlord' that would somewhat limit American's ability to surf the web and that no patriotic American would complain about national security taking precedence over the Bill of Rights.
