Another 'Czar' at the Obama White House

Hosted by

Cyber crime is a real threat to the economy. Railroads, air traffic control and electric utilities are already the targets of “Weapons of Mass Disruption.” That was the President's message today as he created a new job to make up for a dismal lack of national preparation. The Cyber-security Coordinator will be on both the economic and national security councils with access to the President, but critics insist that won't work. We hear how serious the problem is and ask if creating the new “Czar” will be more than a symbolic gesture.
