Congressman Boustany Talks Cyber Security – Presidential Campaigning – Osama Bin Laden
7th District Congressman Charles Boustany joined "Mornings With Ken & Bernie" today and discussed topics from cyber-security, Presidential campaigning to the death of Osama Bin Laden. Boustany said the House passed a bill yesterday to allow government agencies to share computer code with private industries such as credit card companies to combat cyber thefts. According to Boustany "in fact one credit card company is seeing over 300,000 cyber attacks a day". By sharing the computer code with industry those companies will be better armed to deal with attacks by foreign countries.
The first anniversary of Osama Bin Laden's death is fast approaching and we asked Boustany if any threats were being investigated. The Congressman said there seemed to be no eminent threat and he said pictures of a dead Bin Laden would not be released to avoid inciting the Muslim world.
On the subject of President Obama using taxpayer money to campaign at various college campuses he said the Republican National Committee was investigating the matter and would ask the Obama campaign to repay any money used inappropriately.
