To paraphrase the Hi-Tech Wizard, Ted Stevens: "You see, it's all a series of tubes...."

Yup, packing my bags and getting the directions North....

They can bomb Microsoft and catch Bill Gates and put in on the Texas desert to practice catching Bib Laden.

I somehow doubt those PCs were running anything but Windows.

As hideous a thought as it is, All of DHS is legally bound and contracted to buy Microsoft.

It's a scary world out there, ain't it!

They could send to Iraq to B. Gates along with all his employees. A force of about 10,000 people (I read somewhere MS has about 10,000 employees) could help somewhat (mainly in intelligence tasks, or as commandos).

Is this Robert Gates from the Pentagon a relative of our friend Bill Gates?

i bet they weren't "attacked" at all. Why would you report to CNN, hay yes,, we were broken into today??

Its an Election year for you crazy ppl's remember.. Keep the population in fear, keep them scared, ensured easy platform to suppress laws attacking your, and subsequently our civil rights.

Piss ant Americans.

Although it is quite possible you are correct about the reason for this report, please refrain from generalizations based on the stupidity of our government.

I also happen to know that anything really important never goes through a windows system. The rating the DOD gave windows was to low to allow it.

No offense intended (honestly) mate but if GW were to make a sharp left turn, it would break John Howard's nose.

And if it weren't for the "piss ant Americans" a lot of Aussies would likely be eating sushi right about now!

BTW just for your info, I'm a yank living in Oz...so flame away.

What's wrong with sushi? I like sushi. The vinegar-ish stuffed doughy things especially.

I think he was referring to World War II, the Japanese plans to invade Australia, among other places.
