Obama + Netanyahu = The Morgan Doctrine

President Obama laid the basis for a rational cyber doctrine last week. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress yesterday was unambiguous in articulating Israeli defense priorities. Given that Israel has just as much right to state the same cyber defense strategy as did President Obama for the United States, and given the far less "diplomatic-speak" tone of Mr. Netanyahu, I renew my suggestions (April 8th and before that on November 20, 2010) that it makes a whole lot of sense that Israel become the first cyber privateer world power. First-mover advantages would be staggering.

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
