At our last meeting of the first decade of the 21st century our speaker was Thomas Petrowski. His has been a multifaceted career in service to our country beginning as a Green Beret, followed by a law degree and JAG service, then Special Ops action and investigating crimes committed during the Saddam Husain regime in Iraq. He joined the FBI as a Special Agent and taught at its training facility at Quantico.

His specialty in cyber security may soon be put to further testing following the US assassination of Iran's top general. However, in his opinion China poses the greatest threat to America in the future. He noted rather pithily that there are two categories of US businesses those that are aware that they've been "hacked " by China and those that have been "hacked" but don't know it. 

Having worked directly with Robert Mueller, Asst. Director McCabe and James Comey Petrowski acknowledged that Comey's conduct was less than error free but observed that each was a person of highest integrity with a lifelong commitment to the well being of our country, an opinion notably not shared by the President. 

For the present current events in the beginning of the second decade of the century seem to pose a greater concern to Americans than cyber security.
