A veteran Washington Times columnist explains how the United States can beat China, Russia, Iran, and ISIS in the coming information-technology wars. America is at war, but most of its citizens don't know it. Covert information warfare is being waged by world powers, rogue states--such as Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea--and even terrorist groups like ISIS. This conflict has been designed to defeat and ultimately destroy the United States. This new type of warfare is part of the Information Age that has come to dominate our lives. In iWar, Bill Gertz describes how technology has completely revolutionized modern warfare, how the Obama administration failed to meet this challenge, and what we can and must do to catch up and triumph over this timely and important struggle.

This is basically an anti-liberal, anti-Muslim rant, with sprinklings of racial stereotypes. It contained virtually no "tech" information at all. Some of the "news" releases quoted were "false news" and conspiracy websites. Simon & Schuster should be embarrassed to have wasted ink on this.

[Update: With the current exposure of Vault 7 by WikiLeaks - - and if WikiL has it, too many now have it - - indicates that the CIA has once again blown taxpayer monies to the winds, so that when they are not actually embezzling or stealing it, they are wasting it by allowing every Tom, Dick, and Lee to get their hands on it, i.e., privatizing the intelligence establishment means everyone now has access to it!]
Overall, the book is a conservative, republicon-slanted attack on America's cyber defenses, which might just be greatly enhanced if the private sector - - AND the American gov't - - stopped offshoring jobs, technology and investment to certain foreign countries like China!?
But we now know, thanks to WikiLeaks' previous leaks and the present Vault 7 leaks, that America advanced greatly, but now that data appears once again to be public domain!
