FBI investigating ‘military-style’ attack on California power plant | The Verge

The incident has raised concerns that the US government is not adequately protecting its physical infrastructure, focusing increasingly on cyber crime. “There are ways that a very few number of actors with very rudimentary equipment could take down large portions of our grid,” John Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said at a recent event sponsored by Bloomberg. “I don’t think we have the level of physical security we need.” However, although even nuclear power plants are known to be vulnerable, a concerted, militarized effort to attack them has yet to take place.

It’s probably nothing.  Now go back to sleep.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
