America finally on the offense in Cyber War

Maybe. The New York Times:
"When American forces in Iraq wanted to lure members of Al Qaeda into a trap, they hacked into one of the group’s computers and altered information that drove them into American gun sights.


"In interviews over the past several months, a range of military and intelligence officials, as well as outside experts, have described a huge increase in the sophistication of American cyberwarfare capabilities."

If only the government could also ensure computers with highly classified material aren't plugged into the world wide web, exposing them to hackers. The F-35, Marine One... what's next?
