Fmr. CIA Analyst on Internet Oversight: Obama Hopes World Will Gain 'Unicorns and Rainbows'

Former President Bill Clinton expressed concern over the Obama administration’s announcement that the Internet domain system will be ceded to an international agency in 2015.

Speaking at Arizona State University on Friday, Clinton said, “Whatever you think our country has done wrong, the United States has been by far the country most committed to keeping the Internet free and open and uninterrupted.”

Today on Your World, former CIA analyst Mike Baker agreed with Clinton. For several years, countries including Russia and China have been working to gain more control of the Internet.

“It’s not because they want to enhance the openness of the Internet,” Baker said.

He slammed the Obama administration’s claim that they want to hand over control because it reflects the diversity of the global Internet community.

“The problem here is that the global Internet community does not have a First Amendment. We do,” Baker said, quipping that the Obama administration hopes it’s all going to be unicorns and rainbows around the world.
