    Yeah after reading it I wasn't sure if it was written by Scott Tissue
    or Brawny.  The current write up provides no essential changes to what
    the PSCIA and other documents have already included.  Why do they need
    technology why don't the ask the one's digging in the trenches.  I
    provided SANS and the InfraGard IEB extensive comments and saw not a
    single mention of the training nor the interagency opsec
    support staff issues.  Again ostriches 1 reality zip.  v/r Michael

    The Bush administration will not unveil the final version of a national
    cybersecurity plan this Wednesday, saying it wants to gather more input from
    the technology industry.
    The White House had been expected to offer a detailed strategy for
    protecting the nation's critical information infrastructure from attack.
    Instead, the administration will release another draft of the strategy.
    "We've said all along that this is a living document," said Tiffany Olsen,
    an aide to White House cybersecurity adviser Richard Clarke.  
    "We wanted to make sure we have buy-in from all the parties involved before
    the official release comes out."
    Technology firms will have 60 days to submit comments on the latest draft,
    Olsen said, with an official presidential unveiling of the final plan
    scheduled for before the end of the year.
