Richard Clarke: Obama Lags vs. China Cyber War

The Obama administration is failing in its duty to protect the country from the threat of a Chinese cyber attack, former counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke warned in a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed.

“Congress hasn’t passed a single piece of significant cyber security legislation,” wrote Clarke, who served under both President Bushes and President Clinton.

Government officials know that the Chinese government is “systematically attacking the computer networks of the U.S. government and American corporations,” and therefore it has a duty to do something about it, Clarke wrote.

“Three years ago, the head of the British Security Service wrote to hundreds of corporate chief executive officers in the U.K. to advise them that their companies had in all probability been hacked by the government of China,” he wrote.
