“We have just communicated to any would-be attacker that we will do whatever they want.” →

Cyberterrorism expert Peter W. Singer on Sony’s decision to pull The Interview from theatres after vague threats of violence:

“There’s a parallel here to the Boston marathon bombing. I am going to be careful on this. The Boston attacks were real, and people died. This is not in the same category. But, a lot of terrorism analysts have talked about how they shut down the entire city of Boston, which was the wrong message. It sends the message to terrorists elsewhere that if two not-so-well trained guys with a jury-rigged rice cooker bomb can shut down an entire American city, what can we do if we’re good at this?”
