"Who wrote those lines? Steve Jobs? Linux inventor Linus Torvalds? Ralph Nader? No, the author is former White House adviser Richard A. Clarke
in his new book, Cyber War: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It.

It has been a few months since Clarke's latest opus appeared, but it's still making quite a splash.
Clarke, after all, was the guy who repeatedly warned the White House about Al Qaeda before September 11, 2001.
As a result, he has quickly become the most publicly identifiable person on the subject.

"While it may appear to give America some sort of advantage," Cyber War warns, 
"in fact cyber war places this country at greater jeopardy than it does any other nation.""
