In the unseen reaches of cyberspace, our enemies are quietly taking the postmodern form of warfare we witnessed on 9/11 to a new level: They are no longer just transnational—they are non-national, hiding and attacking in a world where there are no borders. They are no longer just stateless—they are place-less. And they are no longer virtually invisible—they are, well, virtual.
