America takes over DNS (re: On-going Internet Emergency and Domain Names)

The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ...
wants to have the key to sign the DNS root zone
solidly in the hands of the US government.
This ultimate master key would then allow
authorities to track DNS Security Extensions
(DNSSec) all the way back to the servers that
represent the name system's root zone on the
Internet. The "key-signing key" signs the zone
key, which is held by VeriSign.
