American leaders talk so much! Stuxnet was an American cyberwarfare program!

We have a case of dangerous loose tongue in the American military. Nothing less than the former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General James Cartwright, is under investigation by the Justice Department for leaks on the industrial Stuxnet
computer virus which successfully destroyed centrifuges of Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010.

We do not know if Gen. Cartwright divulged information about Stuxnet to David Sanger, a correspondent of the New York Times, who use the material for his book "Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power."

Before we believed it was only Israel involved in creating the complex computer virus, now we know that it was a joint US and Israel program, with the US taking the initiative.

We cannot sympathize with the US if it complains that other nations are engaging in cyberwarfare or industrial espionage. This recent revelation on the Stuxnet worm is a blackeye for American security.
