However, even the Obama administration admits that China is already fragmenting the Internet with its own root zone no matter what the U.S. and ICANN choose to do. Given that Internet fragmentation is a fact, proceeding with Obama's reckless Internet transition is a solution in search of a problem and should be rejected due to its negative impacts on the free and open Internet.
