George Bush to World: Go Jump into the Lake 

The NTIA states the U.S. Principles on the DNS:

This document contains four statements, the first reads a following:

The United States Government intends to preserve the security and stability of the Internet’s Domain Name and Addressing System (DNS). Given the Internet's importance to the world’s economy, it is essential that the underlying DNS of the Internet remain stable and secure. As such, the United States is committed to taking no action that would have the potential to adversely impact the effective and efficient operation of the DNS and will therefore maintain its historic role in authorizing changes or modifications to the authoritative root zone file.

Some of the comments on various sources are not very friendly:

HustonCronicle: U.S won't cede control of Internet's key computers

ZDnet: U.S. to retain control of Internet Domain Names

The Register: Bush adminstration annexes internet (I like this one)

CNN: U.S keeps control of Internet computers

BBC: US holds onto key internet role

I just wonder how ICANN and especially the ITU-T will comment this.
