I just sent eveything that I was forwarded, I don't know anymore nor have I heard this from my provider. I find this hard to believe and I just wanted to see if someone knew something that I didn't.

Should this request not be via the telcos pre-empting the circuits ?
Also does the military not operate its own private network services
both voice/data ?

Has anyone received a request like the one that was I forwarded below?
[Stuff Deleted] We just received a call from our ISP that they were contacted by Quest Communications who is a major National ISP who in tern was contacted by the Military and were asked to shut down a lot of their equipment connecting clients to the Internet so that there would be more bandwidth. Other ISP supposedly received the same call. Get ready for a big outage.... [More Stuff Deleted]
