How much should the Government Control the Internet?

Last week, the Associated Press explored the issue of how much the U.S. Government should control the Internet.

Similar to how planes were ordered grounded after 9/11, should the President be able to hit the kill-switch on the Internet if there is a catastrophic online attack?

According to the AP (lol), “At least 18 bills have been introduced as Congress works carefully to give federal authorities the power to protect the country in the event of a massive cyberattack. Lawmakers do not want to violate personal and corporate privacy or squelching innovation. All involved acknowledge it isn't going to be easy.”
