(Reported By L. Gordon Crovitz) When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never take control. But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance, U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30.
On Friday Americans for Limited Government received a response to its
Freedom of Information Act request for “all records relating to legal
and policy analysis . . . concerning antitrust issues for the Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers” if the U.S. gives up
oversight. The administration replied it had “conducted a thorough
search for responsive records within its possession and control and
found no records responsive to your request.” CONTINUE
