Will This Become a New Internet Domain: www.shutupinfidel.jihad?

Now here's an idea that shows us just how savvy a community organizer can be. The Obama administration wants to give up US control over the organization that administers the Internet, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which is based in Los Angeles.

ICANN is a non-profit group that controls domain names and other parts of the Internet architecture. It operates under a contract with the Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and last Friday this agency announced that it wants ICANN to go global and develop a new governing structure to make this happen. The change would involve multiple "stakeholders."

Cameron Kerry, former general counsel with the Commerce Department and co-idiot of a Secretary of State who shares the same last name, said, "This is all about . . . separating the Internet from government control, and the United States is in the strongest position to argue against government control of the Internet if it relinquishes that last little bit of control that it has."

This is another example of the naivety of liberals; people who believe that others have no unsavory aspirations in spite of the personal evidence they share with each other. There should be no doubt amongst anyone with a brain that someone in the international community would do whatever they could to take advantage of this situation. What if domain names eventually came under the control of some special interest group, like say, the Muslim Brotherhood. They would obviously see free speech differently that an infidel commenting on how they perceive Muhammad, let's say.

Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker, challenged the Commerce Department's decision on Friday and tweeted that it "risks foreign dictatorships defining the internet." He added: "Every American should worry about Obama giving up control of the internet to an undefined group."

But with Obama's foresight and speech-making abilities, we should trust him. I can hear him now: "If you like your Internet, you can keep your Internet."
