Dear CIA-nominee John Brennan

Congratulations on your nomination yesterday by President Obama to head the CIA. You've been a vocal advocate of stronger infrastructure-protecting cybersecurity legislation. With due respect sir, leaving this important job to government employees or to hackers dumb enough to get caught and plea bargain services in exchange for suspended jail time is not a wise strategy. You want to motivate the people who DON'T get caught to join the team. To my mind, the best way to do this is to incentivize the process by creating the next big monetization gold rush: licensed and bonded cyber privateers.

I would be delighted to have a lively conversation with you on the subject. Because stronger infrastructure-protection legislation does nothing to protect our real crown jewels: America's small business and commerce engine. We're getting hit hard and often, and will continue to get slaughtered if you keep our hands tied and insist we play defense only.



  1. Hello
    + This man will have a lot of work.

    "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is advising people to temporarily disable the Java software on their computers to avoid potential hacking attacks.

    The recommendation came in an advisory issued late Thursday, following up on concerns raised by computer security experts."

    + An old quote attributed to Alexander the Great reads:
    "None is so unassailable fortress that can not get into it a mule laden with gold."

    + And it's a true statement.

    Bye from Spain.

  2. For the information of anyone wondering about JOSEPH from SPAIN, he is the one who cracked the crypto code that the FBI's "best and brightest" couldn't handle (see http://www.themorgandoctrine.com/2011/11/fbis-best-brightest-blow-one-for-gipper.html).


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?
