Fighting A Real and Costly War in Cyberspace

The Surge, the US troop deployment credited with holding the unraveling Iraq war together, owes much of its success to well trained US soldiers fighting the battle in cyberspace. "@War:The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex" tracks the emergence of the fifth domain of warfare. Once we fought on land, air, sea and space. Now the US sees the greatest threat emerging from the interconnections made possible by the world wide web. Journalist Shane Harris examines the threat, the warriors, the battlefield and the companies that profit from this quest for internet security. Shane Harris spoke at Town Hall in Seattle with Scholar-In-Residence Steve Scher, November, 2014.
