Congress Must Prevent the Internet’s Surrender

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. 

President Obama’s wrecking operation aimed at diminishing our country, emboldening its enemies and undermining its friends is moving inexorably forward on a front unknown to most Americans – yet, likely to affect many of them personally.

Team Obama is determined to end America’s effective control over internet domain names.  By relinquishing to the likes of Russia, China and Iran the management of ICANN – a bureaucratic mechanism that assigns what amount to website addresses – U.S. government agencies, other users and internet freedom are sure to suffer.

Just one example: If hostile powers can begin assigning to themselves or their friends America’s official government and military – “.gov” and “.mil” – domain names, at a minimum, confusion will ensue.  More likely, there will be compromises of national security.

It’s currently against the law to surrender ICANN. Congress must not allow the President to betray his duty, again.

This is Frank Gaffney.
