Air Force Cyberspace operations manual is now available online at the LeMay Center website. Noteworthy reference from manual points to possible offensive use, "...shutting down electrical power to key power grids of enemy..." which seems a familiar tactic? Would this be a Stuxnet-like worm used to attack Siemens industrial software? "Noah Shachtman, a contributing editor to Wired magazine and a fellow at the Brookings Institute think tank, said even the limited mention of offensive operations in the manual surprised him." Washington Post article believes cyberspace operations manual will be used to clarify cyberspace roles of service branches.
