US troops to remain in South Korea longer

There are still about 28,000 American troops based in the South.

N. Korea Ruled Out In 2009 Cyberattacks

U.S. officials have largely ruled out North Korea as the origin of a computer attack last July that took down U.S. and South Korean government websites.

But, authorities aren't much closer than they were a year ago to knowing exactly who did it, or why.

Early analysis of the fast-moving "denial of service" attacks pointed to North Korea since code used included Korean language.

Experts say agencies are better prepared today, but that many government and business sites remain vulnerable to similar attacks.

Unmanned Aerial Technology

The U.S. Military's unmanned aerial technology is becoming the envy of other nations. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has confirmed several allied nations...including Britain, Canada, Spain, Japan and South Korea... have all expressed interest in drone technology. Each branch of the military has different uses for U-A-V's or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Rear Admiral Terry Kraft says the drones capabilities in persistence and covertness are particularly impressive. And, he says, unmanned Systems will be included in the Navy's 2011 budget and beyond. They're in the process of introducing several new systems now, including the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Unmanned Aircraft System (or BAMS), the Navy version of the Global Hawk. In 2012, the Navy anticipates a breakthrough development when they land an unmanned tail-less aircraft onboard an aircraft carrier.
