I would like to see the Counter Terrorism Unit/FBI or State Department start removing URL's Websites that promote beheading 101 of Americans. Isn't about time we shut down the Taliban and there propaganda. Remove all Jihad Manuals, All Beheading Material and cleanse the Internet from the Evil doers before they recruit more Usama bin ladens in future. Freedom of the Internet is wonderful long as there are some rules and boundaries. Removing items like bomb making, known terror websites, manuals, instructions anything that could do harm to people should be removed. Let's face it we don't want our children to have access to this type of material. It would behove the above departments to start issuing warrents and shutting down those websites for good. Saying, "less is more" ridding Evil on the Internet should be the United States Highest Priority.

Godbless and remember to reduce the future terrorists on earth you have to put an end to their ability to communicate freely. Giving terrorists this freedom will only encourage war, death and destruction. Peace OUT!

There is another old saying, "Things normally happens in 3's" since Haiti has received two Earthquakes makes you wonder if another one will happen soon. I believe some things in life happens in threes, like when Jesus died and went to heaven in three days. Your driving down the road and a rabbit, squirrel and deer cross your path. You might even experience the same breed of animal three times. It just means be prepared the worst may not be over. The scientist who track Earthquakes should be providing an early warning signal to the Island of Haiti to ensure they have some method of alertness when or if the next Earthquake happens. The Rescue teams need to be prepared in case another Earthquake happens, US Military and US Aid and all the Haiti Government along with the people of Haiti. Establish the evacuation routes, what happens if another 7.0 or 8.0 Earthquake happens, then what? You ask the questions before hand so you can get prepared to handle the situation. Our prayers and thoughts are with the people of Haiti to recover and survive this Natural Disaster.

Godspeed!!!

A great speech, well done and Bravo Zulu!!!

I believe one solution to ending Usama bin laden is removing his very existence of material, by deleting, removing, and preventing his face, There should be a law on the books that prevents Internet Providers banning Usama bin Laden's messages, his distorted extremist view be banished from the Internet all together, if there is one face, one message, one person that should be buried it's Usama bin laden. Spreading his message, his views, and the destruction of innocent lives only promotes the Evil ways. My request to the Counter Terrorism Unit/FBI/CIA/DSA/NSA State Department and all other Security Agencies, start a process of removing the Extremist messages, the Extreme Cult of Usama bin laden and his followers from the Internet. Once his image is vanished, the message will dis-appear, and if it comes to light, then you would know exactly where it came from. The way to root out Usama bin laden is removing his ability to communicate, forcing him or his group to respond, when the Media doesn't give him the time of day. He has used the Media to forge his agressions towards United States of America and even today still becomes the very Ghost of History. What better way to find the top terrorist, by destroying his image, not catering to his showcase of selling the Jihad to his followers. Ending the Taliban and forcing him to encave himself into a mind prison that last for eternity. This would help bring Usama bin laden out of the darkness and into the light!

Godbless!!!

The Internet, at least as it has been experienced in the United States, has been and should always remain a virtual "wild west" of information. Allowing or forcing non-government entities like ISPs to filter, throttle or block content is the antithesis of the Internet's purpose: the free exchange of information. Government's role is not to act as a "nanny", but instead to ensure access to the world wide web for all.

Illegal and immoral activities may occur online, but it is not the role of government to block content in the blind hope of universally stopping such activities, as there is no way to do so without also blocking acceptable content. It is, instead, government's place to seek out and prosecute those committing crimes.

We don't lock up every citizen on the off chance they'll commit a crime. We don't preemptively ticket every vehicle on the off chance it will exceed the speed limit. We shouldn't block keywords, domains or IP addresses simply because someone, somewhere finds their content tasteless.
If a crime occurs, go after the criminal. If offensive content is posted, post content representing a counter argument.

Dearest Hillary

I like to follow some of the issues of US Gov because the international influence of some of these policies is self evident.

I lead e socially oriented scientific institute studying global popular access to web resources, so I was quite interested in your speech over internet development and freedom.

If you are interested, we have developed particularly light and efficient search engines necessary for useful participation in social networks, with a special eye on small business interactions.

Please do accept my compliments for your endeavour,

Yours truly
