I'm not sure what the lead time is at Wired magazine before an article actually makes into print.

But I'm guessing James Bamford was twitching with anxiety when Edward Snowden's revelations were published about the government's spy network's snooping on Americans.

Bamford wrote an article just published in Wired about the God of War, Gen. Keith Alexander, the guy who runs the secret operations that aim to do battle on the Internet around the world.

Bamford has done a powerful lot of research to show what Alexander's troops are up to with their billions of relatively unaccounted-for dollars. Alexander basically runs the National Security Agency, the Central Security Service, the U.S. Cyber Command -- thousands of spies and 14,000 cyber troops.

What that do in terms of surveillance is one thing. What they are prepared to do in terms of going on the offensive is another thing altogether.

Snowden hasn't leaked this kind of information. It will make your hair stand up on the back of your neck.

Check it out. Bamford's done a great job, and his piece adds a whole new dimension to what's come out since Snowden.
