As if the United States hasn’t already been involved in enough wars, the US government has admitted its role in launching a secret cyber attack against Iran. Since the first day Obama took office, the plot named “Olympic Games” was used to launch online attacks with cyberweapons such as the Stuxnet computer worm, which disrupted certain aspects of Iran’s nuclear program. Aaron Swartz, founder and executive director of Demand Progress, joins us with more on the online war.

The Obama administration has been linked to being involved in a covert war with Iran, and the players include both the US and Israel. The difference here, however, is that this war is over computer systems. Are the results the same as on a physical battlefield though? Some are saying that Obama has continued former President Bush’s “Olympic Games” cyberwar program but have been more aggressive by using weapons such as the Stuxnet worm. The virus was an attempt to disrupt Iran’s nuclear program and Barrett Brown, founder of Project PM, joins us with more on the new front-lines of war.
