Complications in Promoting Internet Freedom

Kelley Currie at the Weekly Standard Blog writes on the State Department’s failure to adequately support the Global Internet Freedom Consortium, despite having ample funding from Congress.  Currie suggests complications may be due in part to the Constortium’s connection to the Falun Gong movement.

The article also links to a must-read piece written by Ronald Deibert and Rafal Rohozinski in the Journal of Democracy entitled Liberation vs. Control: The Future of Cyberspace.  Check both out.
