He's Back

The American Jihadist fighting alongside al Shebab militants in Somalia has released another video recording. In this one Abu Mansour Al-Amriki states that President Barack Obama was trying to mislead Muslims and impose "so-called moderate or American Islam." Al-Amriki also stated that the mujahidin would not stop fighting until all foreign troops are pulled out of Muslim lands and until the US stops its support to Israel. The statement is attributed to the Sada Al-Jihad Media Center of the Global Islamic Media Front.

Indentify the cyber terrorist

The most immediate challenge is to identify the cyber terrorist in vast and anonymous cyberspace

U.S. - Russian Partnership

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says the possibility of a U.S.-Russian partnership on missile defense have improved because Moscow is becoming more concerned about Iran. The defense secretary told senators Tuesday that U.S. offers to put radar or data exchange centers in Russia are among the options being discussed. Russian and U.S. officials are working intensively on a successor deal to the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START I, which expires in December. Negotiators are aiming for some results by the time Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hosts President Barack Obama July 6-8 in Moscow.

Cyber security

Cyber security has received a thorough debate within the Obama administration. Now it looks like the Homeland Security Department will retain at least some role in setting standards and policy - even as a new White House office is established for cyber security. It's taken a month for the administration to get its final report out after the 60-day review. Why? Because lots of agencies and panels were fighting for a piece of the action. But Congress has yet to weigh in. I'm Tom Temin.

The National Security Agency

The National Security Agency is the big question mark for the Obama administration's new cyber security strategy. Specifically, what should NSA's role be? The spy agency, by all accounts, has the best technology and know-how for monitoring cyber space. But critics fear its ability to conduct domestic surveillance. Even as the administration releases its new strategy, expect this debate to continue. I'm Tom Temin.
