A bill proposed in Congress on Wednesday would require the U.S. National Security Agency to inform representatives of other government agencies about security holes it finds in software like the one that allowed last week’s “ransomware” attacks.
Under former President Barack Obama, the government created a similar inter-agency review, but it was not required by law and was administered by the NSA itself.

Police in Indianapolis are looking to a Detroit surveillance camera program to help fight crime.
WRTV-TV reports that the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is expected to begin the first phase of its Project Green Light next month.
It allows owners and operators of businesses, organizations and apartment complexes to wire their surveillance cameras into the police department. Officers monitoring the surveillance feeds then are able to see what’s going on at the locations in real time.
This week’s news that President Trump will reportedly tap Milwaukee County Sheriff and novelty hat enthusiast David Clarke for a position in the Department of Homeland Security led to a wave of entirely-justified disbelief, outrage, and fear. Clarke is a genuinely vile person who is better known for his vitriol-laden Fox News talking heads than for protecting and serving the people who elect him. Four people in his custody have died during the past year alone, including a mentally ill man who died after sadistic jail officials cut off water to his cell for seven days. Clarke isn’t fit to operate a pair of handcuffs, much less take a seat at the table at which high-ranking officials make critical decisions about America’s national security.
Yet according to Philip McNamara, who held Clarke’s purported position-to-be during the Obama administration, this is exactly what is about to happen. McNamara explained to me that the Assistant Secretary of Partnerships and Engagement’s primary role is to manage DHS’ links to “critical homeland security partners” nationwide. Since homeland security is a shared responsibility—as McNamara pointed out, when a crisis occurs, people call 911, not the Washington, D.C. number for DHS—his office served as a liaison between the federal government and governors, mayors, county executives, tribal leaders, and law enforcement at all levels. This is a pragmatic function, not a partisan one, which is precisely why Sheriff Clarke is the wrong guy for the job.
