"President Barack Obama has signed an executive order targeting people and entities who use technology to help authoritarian regimes in Iran and Syria suppress their people. 'Technologies should be in place to empower citizens, not to oppress them,' Obama said on Monday at a speech at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. ... In the executive order the president said the 'malign use of technology' was facilitating human rights abuses in Iran and Syria and was a threat to the national security of the US." [editor's note: Anyone got a pool going on how quickly this will be used to suppress dissent in America? If so, please put a buck on "already" for me - TLK] (04/23/12)
