Inside Politics: Romney says he has time, resources to be nominee
Mitt Romney says he’s got the time, the resources and the plan to take him all the way to the Republican presidential nomination.
The front-runner in the Republican presidential race didn’t score a knockout punch on Super Tuesday. But he says he’s got strong enough support to propel him all the way to the presidential ballot against President Obama come November.
In an appearance Wednesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Mr. Romney said he’s feeling “pretty darn good” about his showing on Super Tuesday, when he won a narrow victory in crucial Ohio and picked up five other states as well. Rick Santorum won three states, and Newt Gingrich picked up one.
Mueller: Terrorists have eye on cyberattacks in U.S.
“Terrorists have not used the Internet to launch a full-scale cyberattack, but we cannot underestimate their intent,” Mr. Mueller said in prepared testimony to a House Appropriations subcommittee. He said terrorists have shown interest in developing hacking skills and that the evolving nature of the problem makes the FBI’s counterterrorism mission more difficult.
Under questioning by Republican Rep. Frank R. Wolf of Virginia, Mr. Mueller said he would support increasing the criminal penalties for computer hacking in the context of economic espionage as the U.S. seeks to protect sensitive information.
“Our companies are targeted for insider information, and our universities and national laboratories are targeted for their research and development,” the FBI director told the congressional panel.
This week, a group of expert hackers who attacked governments and corporations around the globe was busted after its ringleader became an informant for the FBI.
Mr. Mueller said there are FBI cybersquads in each of the bureau’s 56 field offices. The FBI has more than 1,000 specially trained agents, analysts and digital forensic examiners who run complex undercover operations and examine digital evidence.
