WCIT Talks Are Not About Internet Governance, Says ITU Head in Response to Critics

David McAuley from BNA recently interviewed International Telecommunication Union Secretary-General Dr. Hamadoun I. Touré, addressing accusations that the international telecom body is using the upcoming World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) talks in Dubai as a forum to wrest key internet governance functions away from the private sector (and the U.S. government).

From the interview: Touré stressed that the concern over internet governance should not drown out the opportunity for WCIT to take on matters of real import. "Why don't we talk about security, you cannot have freedom or privacy without security. If anyone can steal your identity you are not a free person."
